Make your goals SMART
Take a look at Freda’s goals. They are a good start, but at the moment they’re a bit vague.
How long should they take? How far must Freda go before she can say she’s achieved her goals?
Can she even be sure that she will ever reach these goals?
Freda’s SMART goals
So, applying the rules described above, here’s what Freda’s goals look like now she’s made them SMART.
As you can see Freda now has some clear actions to take. They are specific so Freda has guidance on what she’s planning to do and she can measure when she’s done them.
Freda has also made sure they are realistically achieveable for her at the moment. She also knows they are things she wants to do – so achieving them will be rewarding.
And they’re timed because there’s a defined period in which Freda aims to do them – SMART!
