SMART targets

Are you setting targets for yourself for next year (or some other period of time)?
If yes, than it might help to think about them being SMART. What does it mean:
  • Specific - abstract goals should be avoided, it's better to know exactly what you want to achieve
  • Measurable - at least there should be a way to tell, whether you achieved the goal, better is to able to tell the percentage in progress
  • Achievable - really, there's no point to set a goal you can't possibly achieve
  • Realistic - just because you canpossibly achieve your goal, is it likely you will?
  • Timed - it's good to set time frame for goals, it makes it more likely you will achieve them

To make targets even better, you can try CSMART (C for challenging) or SMARTER. Read more here.
