    • S-M-A-R-T Goals Period 4 Squiggle Worms
    • A goal is a useful tool to help focus and guide a person to the accomplishment of something. It's also a useful tool for implementing lifestyle changes. What is a Goal?
    • The SMART Goal Method If you want a SMART Goal, it must be: 1. S pecific 2. M easurable 3. A ttainable 4. R ealistic 5. T ime Sensitive
    • Specific If a goal is specific, it provides structure and focus because it is defined rather than general. Example : Getting more exercise , while commendable is not a defined goal. Walking 30 minutes every day is more specific and can be measured.
    • Measurable A measurable goal helps to motivate and provide structure because it causes you to set up benchmarks for progress. This is when you start to think about the “how”: How will I know I have accomplished my goal? How can I measure my progress? How will I determine my targets or benchmarks?
    • Attainable
      • You need to find out what is most important to you
      • A goal that you are personally invested in has more value and meaning
      • This will fuel your determination and make it more likely that you will follow through
    • Realistic
      • A realistic goal is a goal you are able and willing to work toward
      • Example: Walking 5 miles a day may not be realistic for someone who just started to exercise
      • This goal could quickly and easily lead to frustration and eventually cause the person to abandon it
      • Choosing a goal that is challenging and realistic is the key
    • How Do I Do This? To help you choose a realistic goal, ask yourself:
      • Where am I now?
      • Where do I want to be?
      • Is this goal reachable in a healthful manner?
      • Does this goal challenge me?
      • Do I believe in my ability to accomplish this goal?
      • If not, how can I modify the goal?
    • Time Sensitive A goal with a firm time schedule creates a sense of urgency and reduces the tendency to procrastinate
      • Establish a specific date for completing the goal
      • This will make it possible to measure progress, maintain focus, and celebrate accomplishments
      • Specific dates also provide an opportunity to review, make adjustments, and re-establish the goal
      • Make the time table practical and reasonable
