SMART Goal Setting

I was glad to see a write-up on SMART goal setting. In over 30 years in the private sector, I have seen goals work and fail, and much of the failure can be tied to goals that were not SMART.
I would encourage anyone to test their goals against this criteria, and adjust goals as needed to follow the "SMART" format. It is also important to have goals that are activity driven. As was pointed out in the article, a goal like "getting in shape" is not smart. But a goal to work out three times per week, for 30 minutes minimum, that is "SMART".
Ready, on your mark, get set...

Thank you for posting this resource! It has greatly improved my view on setting goals for myself. In the past, many of my goals have ended in failure, but this resource is really shedding a new light on creating goals. In the future, I will certainly use the S.M.A.R.T goal formula to help achieve all my goals.
