Goal Setting 101
Is it specific enough?
Can you measure it?'If you can't measure it, you can't manage it'. Clearly defined goals and the steps it will take to achieve them means that all guesswork is removed from the equation. What are the daily tasks you need to complete in order to reach your goal? Did you tick the boxes today?
Is it achievable?Keeping in mind that there can be no real achievement without any struggle, prevent setting yourself up for a fall. Be realistic with your goal setting by taking into account the resources and time you have available each day to dedicate to your overall goal.
Is it relevant?Do your goals align with your values? Ask yourself questions such as 'Is this the right time?', 'Is the struggle worth the reward?' and 'Will achieving this goal help me in other areas of my life?' Remember, if it was easy, everyone would do it!
