How to set SMART Goals

UnStuck = Hard work + Uncommon Wisdom

We all set goals, or at least we think about setting goals. They tell me that it is not a “goal” unless you write it down and I did that for years. I would write down the five to ten things that we wanted to accomplish in the coming year and feel like I had done something. The problem with this process was that I didn’t always keep the list in front of me. Nor did I fully separate goals from wishes.

The results were that I had a vision, but not a plan. A “goal” is how to transfer your wishes into a plan that turns them into reality.

I’d been making a task list rather than setting goals.

Then I discovered SMART goals. What is dumb about that is that the SMART goals process has been around since the early 80s and I just started using it in the last few years. Sure I knew of it, but never went through the thought process until the last few years and it does make a huge difference.
