Get S.M.A.R.T.

Motivational Quote Peter Drucker

Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.

Peter Drucker

As the end of the year approaches, I can’t help but reflect on all the things I accomplished and didn’t accomplish over the past year. I always start the New Year with the best of intentions but inevitably I never achieve everything I wanted to during the year. However, I have been able to improve my success rate by getting S.M.A.R.T.

S.M.A.R.T. is a method used to develop sound goals. A goal is S.M.A.R.T. if it is specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound.

  • Specific: The goal should be simply written and well defined.
  • Measurable: There should be solid proof that you have reached your goal.
  • Attainable: The goal should be challenging but not unrealistic.
  • Relevant: The goal should matter.
  • Time-bound: The goal should have a time frame for completion.

Having S.M.A.R.T goals will greatly increase your chances of success.
