A Brief Guide to SMART goal setting A SMART goal is a goal that is specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time based. In other words, a goal that is very clear and easily understood. SPECIFIC The goal must clearly state what is to be achieved, by whom , where and when it is to be achieved. Sometimes it may even state why that goal is important. Not all of these questions will apply to every goal, but it is important to ask all the questions in order to assess how specific your goal is and make it as clear as possible. MEASURABLE Measurability applies to both the end result and the milestones along the way to attaining a goal. It answers the question of quantity – how much, how often, how many? The milestones are signs along the way that will tell you that you are on the right track to achieving your goal. For instance, your ultimate goal may be to make 60,000 dollars in a year, but the milestones may be to make 5,000 dollars every month, which will add up to 60,000 in a year. So by focusing on making the 5,000 dollars every month you will ultimately reach your goal of 60,000 dollars. This makes the goal more attainable because it is easier to think of ways to make 5,000 dollars every month than 60,000 all at once. It has been said that what cannot be measured cannot be managed.
