## Activity Overview

When we ask students to think about their goals and dreams in life, many times you get general statements without a feasible plan to accomplish them. Reinforcing the specific characteristics in creating SMART goals will help students form an outline to achieve their goals. After covering the different aspects of SMART goals, students will create a storyboard visualizing their goal.

S Specific Measurable Action Realistic Time

Goals should be specific. Eliminating vague desired outcomes will help focus the next steps. Goals should be measurable. How will you know when your goal is achieved? Action is the next aspect. What do you have to do in order to reach your goal. Realistic is the fourth part of a SMART goal. Is your goal doable? Finally, the last aspect is time. How much time will you need to achieve your goal.

Also check out the version of SMART goals for business.
