Achieving Your Goals The S.M.A.R.T Way
Are you the kind of person that finds it challenging reaching goals in personal life, or exercising for strength gains or for losing weight every year and seem to stray from keeping the routine going. If this is the case then maybe you can develop a better strategy using the S.M.A.R.T. goal method. This method breaks down the word smart into a clear and concise way to reach the goals you want to accomplish. No longer will you have unclear, foggy or vague goals set, but a solid goal based method set to be transformed into reality for personal accomplishment.
Specific: This goal should state what is to be accomplished in a very detail way. The goal should be clear, concise, easily followed and ask what, why and
Measurable: The goals should be measurable so that there is no questioning about
whether you can achieve them. Measurable goals allow you to see your progress as you work towards your goal or accomplishments. Being able to see your little successes, you are encouraged and it pushes you to reach your ultimate goal set by yourself.
Achievable: The goal must be attainable and one that is not too easy or difficult. If the goal is to easy then possible interest for attaining the goal will be lost. If the goal is too difficult then you will get frustrated which will cause results to lack and lead to possible quitting.
Realistic: The goal should be relevant, practical, and reasonable. The person should stay in focus with their interests. If you can not do something then it should not be a part of your goal.
Time-defined: The goal should be set to be done within a certain time frame or develop a timeline to complete the goal. The goals can be long term or short term in length and should help you to stay on track for completing the short or long term goal.
Now that you have learned to set goals the S.M.A.R.T. way can lead to great success for your short or long term goals. You should get out there and develop some goals using this method and succeed to your full potential!
