SMART goals are:
Specific – goals should focus on one particular outcome or desired behavior.
Measurable – there is a definable end point, so you know without question that you met the expectation you set for yourself.
Achievable – don’t set the bar so high that you end up disappointed and frustrated – you should have the skills and ability to reach each goal, even if it’s a bit of a stretch. Don’t undermine your self-confidence!
Relevant – each goal should represent a little piece of your wellness vision
Time bound – there must be or you may never push yourself to accomplish what you set out to do. A little good stress (eustress) is a good thing!
SMART goals help to build your self-confidence, self-determination, and encourage the building of intrinsic motivation.
