You Have To Be S.M.A.R.T (^_^)
First of all, I just wanna say thanks to my dear sis, DJ for giving me such a wonderful.. if I may say ‘insights’ which have made me contemplate nearly through the day. I can’t help to share this to my friends here too. Thanks also, to her ol’ pal for creating such a good advice. Hmm… you may view her blog too at: http://www.youme-dream-wingz.blogspot.com/
Not everyone knows what they want or for some not certain how to achieve what they want. There is a solution to many things….stay focus to save your sanity. Use SMART goals to stay focus;
Specific – Avoid vagueness: It is useless saying ‘I want to keep fit, I want to go on diet, etc’…Say something more specific with plans and actions ‘I will exercise at least 3 times a week and have a balance diet.’ Similarly go to people who say ‘I want to save money.’ What about ‘I want to save £20000 in 3 years time.’ Remember: SPECIFIC goals not vague goals.
Measureable – Quantitative goals will tell you how have progress and keeps you on track, reach your target, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to continued reaching towards your goal. Remember to ask questions like…’How will ….How much…How do I…’
Attainable – Goals must be realistic ones. You will lose the motivation once you begin to see it being unrealistic and unable to achieve. Figure out ways you can make them come true. You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them. You may begin seeing previously overlooked opportunities to bring yourself closer to the achievement of your goals. Plan your step wisely. Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable, not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them. When you list your goals you build your self-image. You see yourself as worthy of these goals, and develop the traits and personality that allow you to possess them.
Relevant – Include goals that really matter to you most and not those that you are not ready to commit. Ask the question…’What do I…Why do I want to…’
Time – Set yourself a timeline to achieve it by. It also help you monitor your progress of your goal. Instead of saying ‘I want to lose some weight soon’…Try ‘I want to lose a dress size in 3 months.’
We do everything we do for one reason: Experience.
It is not the best teacher, it is the only teacher.
