The best ways to set goals

A good method to achieve your goal is to break it down into bite-size pieces using SMART goals.

  • S - Specific. Create clear and achievable goals. Instead of wanting to write a book this year, aim for writing one chapter every month.
  • M - Measurable. Your progress should be measurable.
  • A - Achievable. Aim high, but within reason.
  • R - Relevant. You care about your goal rather than thinking you should care about the goal.
  • T - Time-bound. Create a timeline with specific dates and deadlines.

Set S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Each goal you set should be S.M.A.R.T. — Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.

  • Specific: The more specific your goals are, the better chance you have of achieving them.
  • Measurable: Can you identify milestones to hit along your way to success?

SMART Goals are Not Smart

Most of the books dealing with goal-setting talk about S.M.A.R.T. goal framework - goals that are: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound.
