SMART goals...

SMART goals help improve achievement and success. 

A SMART goal clarifies exactly what is expected and the measures used to determine if the goal is achieved and successfully completed.

 A SMART goal is:

Specific (and strategic): Linked to position summary, departmental goals/mission, and/or overall company / organization goals and strategic plans. Answers the question—Who? and What?

Measurable: The success toward meeting the goal can be measured. Answers the question—How?

Attainable: Goals are realistic and can be achieved in a specific amount of time and are reasonable.

Relevant (results oriented): The goals are aligned with current tasks and projects and focus in one defined area; include the expected result.

Time framed: Goals have a clearly defined time-frame including a target or deadline date.

  • When?
  • What can I do today?
  • What can I do tomorrow
  • What can I do 6 weeks from now?
  • What can I do 6 months from now?
