We are ambitious and set goals for ourselves. Whether it's a New Year's resolution or a goal that comes from a performance review, goals are in our nature in every aspect of our lives.
But how do we set goals that we can actually achieve? That's where SMART goal setting comes in. SMART is an acronym that stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Action-oriented, Realistic, and Timely.
In this video, Erika explains how to transform a vague goal like "be better" into a SMART goal by using specific, measurable goals and actionable steps. She also talks about the importance of evaluating and reassessing your progress towards your goal, which she refers to as making your goals "smarter".
Using the SMART goal setting approach can help you stay focused on what you want to achieve and create a roadmap for success. Whether you're setting personal goals in your life, professional goals in your organization, or team goals for a specific project, SMART goal setting can be applied to all areas of your life.
So if you're ready to set yourself up for success, declare it game on and use SMART goal setting to turn your aspirations into achievable targets.
