Dear frustrated goal setter,

Are you tired of an uneventful and unaccomplished life?

Once and for all. do you want to set your goals the right way and stick to them until you achieve them?

The good news is there is a way to live the life of your dreams. for you to accomplish your life changing goals and get exactly what you want in life. However you must set your goals properly. Careful attention should be placed on formulating a clear and well defined goal statement.

A lot of people do not accomplish their goals is because they do not know the right way of setting goals. There is a smart way of setting goals and there is a lazy way. The most effective way of formulating your goals is to use the SMART goal approach.

SMART goals guarantee your goals contain all the vital elements to maximize your goal setting success.

SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic/Relevant and Time Bound.

S = Specific . Do you know exactly what you want to accomplish with all the details?

Goals must be well defined. They must be clear and unambiguous.

M = Measurable . Can you quantify your progress so you can track it?

How will you know when you reach your goal?

Define specific criteria for measuring progress toward the accomplishment of each goal you set so that you can measure and keep track of your progress.

A = Attainable . Is your goal a challenge but still possible to achieve?

Goals must achievable. The best goals require you to stretch a bit to achieve them but they are not impossible to achieve.

R = Realistic . Is your goal realistic and within your reach? Are you willing to commit to your goal?

Almost certainly your goal is realistic if you truly believe that it can be accomplished.

Relevant . Is your goal relevant to your life purpose? Is it in line with your beliefs and values?

Your goal must be consistent with other goals established and fits with your immediate and long-term plans?

T = Time Bound . Does your goal have a deadline?

Goals must have a clearly defined time frame including a starting date and a target date. If you don#8217;t have a time limit then there is no urgency to start taking action towards achieving your goals.

Examples of smart goals

Bad example of a SMART goal: #8220;I want to have a lot of money#8221;.

Good example of a SMART goal:

#8220;I want to make one million within 10 years by starting an internet marketing business selling personal development products all over the world and by providing life coaching consultancy and conducting live seminars.#8221;

Bad example of a SMART goal. #8220;I want to lose weight#8221;.

Good example of a SMART goal:

#8220;I want to lose 20 lbs by April 15th 2008. I will perform a half hour of cardio and half hour of strength training per day, 5 times a week and I will only eat starchy carbohydrates 3 times a week.#8221;

Bad example of a SMART goal. #8220;I want to write a book#8221;.

Good example of a SMART goal:

#8220;I want to write a work book on #8220; How to add 10 years to your life#8221; that is at least 150 pages in length and get it completed by June 30th 2008. I will write at least 4 pages every weekday until I complete the book.#8221;

As you can see setting SMART goals are crucial to your success. Once you have a SMART Goal clearly defined, you need to come up with an action plan of how you are going to get there! Last but not least you need to take action towards your goals. Goals won#8217;t magically happen just because you#8217;ve written them down.

Even if you come up with a fantastic SMART goal nothing happens if you don#8217;t act on them.

You still need to make them happen by taking action consistently.
