Hey Tommy thanks for meeting up with me, I really wanted to review the SMART way goals with you before the exam.
Hey Jack not a problem, lets move somewhere that we don't have to whisper, so that we can talk.
Okay so, we know that the SMART Way has 5 aspects to it. The goals have to be-- Specific, Measurable, Achievable,Relevant, and Timed.
Exactly so lets break that down a little bit. A goal must be Specific. That means that you have to be very clear on what you want to achieve. We can do this by creating a list that talks about what accomplishing your goal will do and how to get there.
Yes exactly, after specific comes Measurable. You need to be able to check the progress that you are making towards achieving your goal. Having an objective measuring system motivates you to stay on track.
The A in SMART stands for achievable. This is setting goals that are realistic, it may be a bit challenging goal but it is feasible.
The"R" stands for Relevant. your goal has to reflect your core values and purpose. They have to harmonize with one another.
So that means, my goal has to do something with the values that have been set by me, the ones i'm trying to bring out in my work? the purpose has to harmonize with my goals?
Yes, thats right!. The final step of the SMART tool is Timed. how does that work again?
Timed, is setting a deadline for reaching your goal. This motivates you to work toward your end result in a timely fashion.
WOW this is a great tool to follow. This was very helpful review ! thanks for going through the SMART goals with me!!
Glad we did this, im a lot more comfortable for this test now! THANKS!!
