Smart goals

  1. 1. S-M-A-R-T Goals Period 4 Squiggle Worms
  2. 2. 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?
  3. 3. The SMART Goal Method If you want a SMART Goal, it must be: 1. Specific 2. Measurable 3. Attainable 4. Realistic 5. Time Sensitive
  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. 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?
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. 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?
  9. 9. 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
