SMART is an acronym that you can use to guide your goal setting. To make sure your goals are clear and reachable, each one should be:
1. Specific – Consider the who, what, when, where, why and how in developing the goal.
2. Measurable – Include a numeric or descriptive measurement.
3. Achievable – Consider the resources needed and set a realistic goal.
4. Relevant – Make sure the goal is consistent with the mission.
5. Time-bound – Set a realistic deadline.
