Adding new goals is always exciting because there’s something shiny and new to focus on, but I realized adding something new means I’m neglecting something old. Since I am always aiming to make SMART goals, I need to re-evaluate what my priorities are and possibly focus on less this month.
- Specific – Who, what when, where, and why.
- Measurable – How much / many? How do you know it’s accomplished.
- Attainable – Start with baby steps.
- Realistic – You can set your goals high, but they must be realistic.
- Timely / Tangible – Have a time frame. Someday won’t work.
