How You Set Your Goals Could Be The Problem

Did you set any New Year’s Resolutions this year? Hubby and I have done this every year on New Year's day. We take out our calendars and make plans for the coming year, which includes our goals for ourselves as individuals and as a couple.

People creatively call New Year's Resolutions goals, objectives, strategies, turning over a new leaf, and drawing a line in the sand. But just the same, the New Year seems like a good time to start afresh.

Setting goals is no doubt one of the best things you can do to make positive changes in your life, whether it's in your business, your life or your relationships.

But to ensure your success, you have to do it S-M-A-R-T.

S-M-A-R-T is an acronym to follow that will help you create goals that have more substance and a better chance of coming to fruition. Setting S-M-A-R-T goals means to make them

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Realistic
  • Timely

You define them clearly with a realistic, yet challenging, quantifiable, achievable, and time bound action plan. Go back and look at your goals for 2015 and be sure to make them S-M-A-R-T.
