Setting Goals Success At WA
Hi WA family hope everyone is doing well, staying safe and healthy.
Personally, I have a problem setting goals, but I do think they are important to achieving success. Setting these goals is not all, I think it is necessary to gain that knowledge and put them into practice. Think of the football player, he or she has to put in the practice and have a team that offers support.
Here at WA, we have a great team and the willingness to help is awesome. I do think most of us practice every day. Of course, it is important to set achievable goals. If I set a goal to finish my WA training in two weeks, all I am doing is setting myself for an unattainable goal. Well, there are those who can do it, but not me. Logical smart goals.
When making goals, it’s important to learn about the acronym S.M.A.R.T. It can help you make better goals. Each letter stands for a different area of the goal. If you create a smart goal, you have created a goal that is Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Reasonable, and Timely. Using SMART goals can set you up for success in your goal setting.
Set up specific goals. This means that your goal needs to be spelled out very precisely. Using language that leaves no doubt as to what the goal is, why you want to achieve the goal, and how you will get there is very important. If you are not able to be detailed in your description of the goal, it will be hard to meet it. Take the time to do this part right.
Make your goal measurable, which means that you should be able to use this as a metric for which to determine success. If your goal can’t be quantified, then it’s not a full goal and you won’t know how to tell when you’ve succeeded. An example of a measurable goal is something like: “I want to add 100 dollars per week of income to our bank by writing five 500-word articles each week for a life coach.”
Make these goals actionable, assignable, or achievable. The preference to really get something good done is to make your goal actionable, meaning something where you can do something for each day that will eventually result in an accomplished goal. Goals should also be achievable or you will only get frustrated. Be accurate about the time it takes to reach a goal, and what actions it takes to get there. Also, know who will be responsible for doing it.
Also, you need to make them realistic or relevant, and either or both are important and are true. If you want your goal to succeed, it should most certainly be something that is realistic or you will fail. It should also be relevant to your life’s vision and match with your values.
Well to complete this we need to give ourselves a certain time frame.
I am sure there are many who have come across what is called smart goals. No this is not an original, I thank the person who sent it to me. I am sharing it with you because it seemed like some kind of a logical plan.
Wishing you all the best,
