Why SMART goals are important and how to set them S.M.A.R.T.E.R?
The smart goals setting method has been around for a while, but after going through the original smart goals setting process I discovered a better, or “smarter” way of setting and reaching goals that works amazing for me. I hope it helps you clarify your goals better and most importantly reach them consistently!
Leverage the NEW SMART goals for setting an action plan and staying the course.
Specific: What to you specifically want to get done this week. Write down the details of your vision. For example, how much do you want to make? What are you going to sell? To whom? How are you going to market it? etc..
Measurable: track and measure your progress so you know you’re on track with reaching your goal at the end of each week or not. Consider using a calendar or other device of your choice. Review your goal at the start and end of each day to see if you are on track. If you are not then make the adjustments you need to help you get back on track to reaching your goal. Confirm each day with your accountability partners outside of Prosper if you are on track or not and make corrections where needed.
Accountability: Ask some people you trust and ask these people to be your accountability partner during the process of reaching your goal. Ask them to hold you accountable to the attainment of the goal such as emailing you to follow up , calling you, asking you what else you need to reach your goal if you are not on track as you use your measure your progress.
Resources: what do you need to reach your goal. People and systems? What do you lack?
Timeline: Set a Start Date and End Date and fill in all the baby steps in between. Break your goal down so you’re clear about what needs to be done every day….
