SMART Goals

If you ask most people what is their one major objective in life, they would probably give you a vague answer, such as, "I want to be successful, be happy, make a good living," and that is it. They are all wishes and none of them are clear goals.

Goals must be SMART:

1. S--specific. For example, "I want to lose weight." This is wishful thinking. It becomes a goal when I pin myself down to "I will lose 10 pounds in 90 days."

2. M--must be measurable. If we cannot measure it, we cannot accomplish it. Measurement is a way of monitoring our progress.

3. A--must be achievable. Achievable means that it should be out of reach enough to be challenging but it should not be out of sight, otherwise it becomes disheartening.

4. R--realistic. A person who wants to lose 50 pounds in~30 days is being unrealistic.

5. T--time-bound. There should be a starting date and a finishing date.

Please comment your opinion on this and add something yours...

BISHAL16 said...

With great respect I don't agree with the point you've taken our attention to "Achievement". None knows what we can achieve. I never knew I'd be able to do what I do now. So simply, we should think, imagine and visualise ourselves as the greatest person alive. Robin Sharma says it so nicely that I could ever say,"You can't reach the goals you don't even think of"

Really this short story tells how we should be. . .if we follow this in every activity whether it may be a big or small does't a matter but if we adopt it definitely one or another day success is yours . . . just go on that's it. . .

correct.
Thats what the poeple doesn't realize it.. Everyone have dreams and goals wish them come true. By talking about the GOALS .in my oppinion ,there are 3 kinds of these poeple:
1. People living and they know what are they living for, (have clear goals and clear plans to accoplish them by)

2. People living. And they have goals .but with no plans .

3. People dont know what are they living for. Dont know what they want
(i think they don't deserve to stay alive).

So what kind of those poeple you are?
Answer this question in ur mind.

yes goal is something you plan and work for

Anonymous said...

I like this a lot, the problem is that S and T are very similar - imagine taking the 90 days (or the time-binding) out of Specificity - suddenly you would have a vague goal of I want to lose 10 pounds.

I think there is something to Goals being smart - but maybe refine the idea a little.

Reason i ask is i've been on the diet plan and also have noticed a massive alter all more than my body and im a good deal thinner all other my physique. I've also noticed although that my
breasts have gone actually small and therefore are half the
size due for the level of body fat ive lost

Some bodies have a high burn rate of calories, which prevents them from accumulating fat.
Getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals is important
because it will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The reason is that too often people consume too much protein at one time and
most of it goes to waste.
