Goal Setting Using SMART Tactics

Were you able to accomplish your 2019 goals? Do you have a vision board of things you would like to aim for this year? There are several ways you can construct your goal plans, but many of those plans can get messy. You might even find yourself setting unrealistic goals, not giving yourself the chance to reach them.

What exactly does it mean to set unattainable goals? It’s not setting a large goal or a goal with a big return- rather, it’s setting a goal that might stress you out when you think about what it will take to achieve it. Accomplishing your goals should feel relieving, not defeating.

By using SMART tactics, you will set yourself up for success when it comes to attaining your goals.. The acronym SMART stands for… Specific.Measurable. Attainable. Realistic. Time Bound. Follow this list of steps to making your goal list:

  1. Decide what you want in life and write it down. Be sure to consider your professional AND personal life.
  2. Set a deadline for your goals. If you don’t have a timeline set in place, you won’t make it a priority to accomplish them.
  3. Identify the obstacles, knowledge, information, and skills you will need.
  4. Identify the people whose help and cooperation you will require to achieve your goals.
  5. Make a list of what you will need to do in order to achieve your goals.
  6. Organize your goals from most to least important. Know which goals you want to achieve first, making them top priority.
  7. Visualize your goals daily. Picture what life will be like once you achieve your goals.

Be sure each day aligns with your goals and and review your SMART goals often. Develop the habit of self-discipline and incorporate daily tasks designed to help move you toward your goals. Stay on your SMART track and you will see results!
