Recap of a SMARTer Goal: A SMART goal is a goal-setting framework that helps individuals and organizations create clear and achievable objectives. The term SMART is an acronym, and each letter represents a characteristic of a well-defined goal: Specific (S): A goal should be clear and specific, leaving no room for ambiguity. It answers the questions: What do I want to accomplish? Why is it important? Who is involved? Where will it happen? What resources or constraints are involved? Measurable (M): A goal should be quantifiable, allowing for the measurement of progress. Establish concrete criteria to track your advancement and determine when the goal is met. This might involve numbers, percentages, or other measurable indicators. Achievable (A): An achievable goal is realistic and attainable. While it's important to set challenging goals, they should still be within the realm of possibility. Consider the resources, skills, and time required to achieve the goal. Relevant (R): A relevant goal is aligned with your overall objectives and is worthwhile. It should matter to you or your organization, and its achievement should contribute to broader goals. Ensure that pursuing the goal is the right thing at this time. Time-bound (T): A goal should have a defined timeframe for completion. This establishes a sense of urgency and helps prevent procrastination. Without a specific deadline, there may be less motivation to work toward the goal. Exciting, Emotional, Entertaining (e): Get emotionally connected so you can stick through it! Rewarding (r): Create a reward for the win! Here's an example of a SMARTer goal: "Increase monthly sales by 15% over the next three months by implementing a new marketing strategy that targets a specific customer segment and review the KPIs daily. When you increase the sales month-over-month we celebrate with our favorite cup of tea and Venetian chocolate wafer" By following the SMARTer criteria, you create goals that are well-defined, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound, making it more likely that you will stay focused and succeed in your endeavors.
