Be SMART about your Goals

So many people who I spoke with admits that they need a sense of direction in life to ensure they are on the right path. The problem is that they don’t know where to start.

My recommendations is, to simply start with the basics and write clear and measurable goals with a detailed timeline. To be able to create your future plan you can refer to the SMART Goals which are: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and timeline as your starting point.

Be Specific: what is it that you are desired to achieve? Ensure you have identified opportunities for development in order to progress to the next level. These goals can apply to any aspect of life, for example career goals, healthy lifestyle etc.

Measurable: with the goals you set to yourself, ensure that you can measure them and keep yourself accountable. Identify at least two areas that requires additional training and development and keep yourself focuse.

Achievable: the goals you set for yourself will be the drive to become the best version of you but you have to ensure that you setting yourself for succession and these can be achieved within a specific timeline.

Realistic: if the goals you set are unrealistic your chance of achieving them are relatively low. Be truthful to yourself and write down what you believe is achievable for you.

Time: like any plan, if you do not put a time frame to it, it won’t work. This will also going to assist with keeping you accountable.

Last but not least, to be able to achieve your goals you will need to surround yourself with people who push you to operate in integrity and work towards your personal best every single day.
