USE THE SMART SYSTEMWhen it comes to goal setting, the SMARTsystem is simple, down-to-earth and gets thejob done. Each goal must be defined so that itmeets the following criteria:S – SpecificM – MeasurableA – AchievableR – RealisticT – Timely
USE THE SMART SYSTEM• SPECIFIC, ACHIEVABLE AND REALISTIC-- Make sure your goals are concrete, concise and attainable. Instead of, "I want to make a lot more money this year," specify "I want to increase my revenues by X percent (a realistic amount) by the end of the year."• MEASURABLE--Frame your goals in such a way so you can measure your progress. For example, plan on measuring monthly or quarterly revenues against last years figures--something you should be doing anyway.
• TIMELY--Give yourself a reasonable time frame for achieving your goal. Then break it down into smaller, short-term increments. Realistically, you may not achieve that X percent increase early in the year, but you can work toward it. Divide your goal percent increase into monthly or quarterly increments that allows you to build on your momentum. This produces measurable, attainable and short-term goals to pursue.
