Set SMART goals & follow through with them!

What Are SMART Goals?

The SMART framework is a goal-setting strategy created by George T. Doran in 1981. According to Doran, in the ideal world, goals and objectives should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound.

The framework remains one of the most popular and versatile goal-setting tools used today. SMART goals are often used in the context of project management, but they can be applied to any other area that requires careful planning.

How to Write SMART Goals

SMART goal-setting is simple and intuitive. All you need is a clear objective you will combine with each of the five criteria of the framework. For instance, if your goal is to “get fit in 2023,” your SMART goals could look like this:

  • Specific: “Go to the gym three times a week.”
  • Measurable: “Burn 300 calories during each workout session.”
  • Achievable: “Increase weight by 10% week-to-week.”
  • Relevant: “Combine weight-lifting and cardio workouts.”
  • Time-Bound: “Finish 144 workout sessions by December 31.”

Every time you apply one of the criteria to your objective, ask yourself a series of probing questions to crystalize your goal. This way, you’ll be able to look at the objective from different perspectives and come up with an effective strategy.
