What Makes SMART Goals Click?

  • Clarity: No more wishy-washy! Goals are laser-focused. Instead of just saying that you will get healthier, say instead that I will walk 30 minutes 3 times a week for 3 months.
  • Motivation: Seeing progress fuels your drive. SMART goals with numbers and deadlines let you celebrate milestones and stay motivated. Here’s the thing, if weight is your goal, stepping on the scale isn’t going to help you stay motivated as your weight fluctuates for various reasons, instead aim for every two weeks or even monthly.
  • Accountability: No room for excuses! Goals make you responsible for your progress, whether you’re solo or tackling a team project. Get support when you need it!
  • Success Tracking: How do you know you’re winning? Goals let you measure progress every step of the way, keeping you on track. Having a planner or a tracker is a great resource to help you review your success.

SMARTen Up Every Area of Your Life:

  • Personal Growth: Master a new skill, crush your fitness goals, or finally write that novel. SMART makes your aspirations actionable.

  • Project Perfection: Break down massive projects into bite-sized goals for smooth sailing and a satisfying finish line.
