Goals are important. SMART goals are even better.
What’s a SMART goal? I’m so glad you asked!
SMART goals are small parts of long-term goals.
A SMART goal is:
S – Specific. Make your goal as clear as possible.
M – Measurable. Make sure your goal can be measured.
A – Appropriate. Make sure it fits you and is part of a bigger goal.
R – Realistic. Set goals that can be achieved.
T – Timely. Set a time limit for your goal.
So, instead of saying, “I want to exercise more,” a SMARTer way to state that goal is, “I will exercise 3 days a week for 30 minutes each day.”
Be as specific as possible. And remember to start small! Rome wasn’t built in a day!
