Set SMART Goals in the new year
A useful way of making goals more powerful is to use the SMART method. While there are plenty of variants, SMART usually stands for:
▪ S – Specific
▪ M – Measurable
▪ A – Attainable
▪ R – Relevant
▪ T – Time-bound
For example, instead of having “To sail around the world” as a goal, it’s more powerful to say “To have completed my trip around the world by December 31, 2015.” Obviously, this will only be attainable if a lot of preparation has been completed beforehand!
We encourage you to set SMART goals in 2014.
