Do you have a goal you’d like to reach, but aren’t sure how to begin to get there? Here’s an outline of how to think about your goal so you can get started.
S=Specific (choose one very specific goal you’d like to attain – nothing general here)
M=Measurable (how can you measure, along the way, how you’re moving along towards your goal?)
A=Attainable (your goal needs to be an attainable one for you)
R=Realistic (the goal also needs to be a realistic one)
T=Time-frame (a specific, yet reasonable period of time)
Once you’ve plugged in the information for all the above, the next step is to develop an action plan. Your action plan needs to be broken down into doable steps or pieces. A qualified coach can help you go through this process successfully by partnering with you. The process would include creating the S.M.A.R.T. goals together, continually reviewing them, helping to keep you on track, providing motivation when you’re getting bogged down, offering suggestions you may not have thought of, and being there for accountability. Its a SMART team effort!
