Goal-setting is the key to great things. But the goal is the end game and it doesn’t mean that once you’ve set it you’re done. You have to take into account what you have to do to actually reach the goal you’ve set.
So, how do you set your goals? And how do you make sure that you’re able to achieve it?
Be SMART about it
Ask any management book – goals and objectives should be SMART. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. Any “goal” that does not meet these criteria is simply a dream or a wish.
Take these for example:
I want to travel the world someday.
I want to travel the world starting with Europe on March 2016.
