What Are S.M.A.R.T Goals?

Goals help to identify an aim or desired outcome. Whether your goals are personal or professional, the S.M.A.R.T. goal framework helps provide clarity on your desired outcomes and ensures you set realistic and meaningful goals for yourself. S.M.A.R.T. goals are:

Dimension Definition
Specific Your goal should be concise, yet contain enough detail for it to be clear what you want to accomplish.
Measurable Identify milestones and tools you can reference to track your progress toward meeting your goal. After all, how can you know you’ve met your goal if you don’t know what success looks like?
Attainable Meeting your goals is a great confidence booster. Consider the skills and behaviors necessary to accomplish your goals, the challenges you may encounter and what resources you can leverage to work around those goals and ensure your success in meeting your goals.
Relevant Reflect on why you want to achieve this goal and ensure this objective is aligned with your identified goal.
Time-Bound Finally, identify the deadline by which you’d like to accomplish this goal. Ensure this timeline is realistic for your life but also motivates you to push toward accomplishing your goals on time.

Benefits of Goal Setting

Goal setting gives you direction and helps you prioritize what is important. It also provides motivation and a sense of control over your future. While you work toward your goals, you gain a sense of purpose in your life and when you accomplish your goals, you acquire a sense of personal satisfaction.
