How SMART are the goals you set? By Pam Boyle
I have always found it interesting that a few of my friends, family and colleagues are very reluctant to set goals when it has been such a powerful tool in my life. I found it so interesting that I decided to research it years ago and it began to really make sense. I read an article about how many people interpret “goals” and a “wish list”. A wish is often associated with something that requires a miraculous and divine intervention, genie in a bottle (or something to that affect) to become a reality. The difference is control to make it happen versus waiting for it to happen to you. Wishes, dreams and heartfelt desires can become a reality when turned into SMART goals. Goals need to be SMART to be translated into realty…..
It may take longer to achieve than a miracle but when you achieve it ……..it is so much sweeter because you know that you can pick the next goal and achieve it again!
