SMART goals are a framework for creating well-defined and achievable objectives. The acronym SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. Here’s a brief breakdown:
Specific: Clearly define what you want to accomplish. Be precise about the goal.
Measurable: Establish criteria to track progress and determine when the goal is achieved.
Achievable: Ensure that the goal is realistic and attainable, considering your resources and constraints.
Resourced: You have the resources and support in place to complete the project.
Time-bound: Set a deadline for when the goal should be achieved. This adds a sense of urgency and helps in time management.
By incorporating these elements into your goals, you increase the likelihood of success and provide a clear roadmap for your efforts.
