Our goals should be S.M.A.R.T.
(specific, measurable, attainable,
realistic, and timely).

Last year,
we talked about
the S in S.M.A.R.T. goals.

Today,
let’s talk about the M - Measurable.

Top Achievement shares

“When you measure your progress,
you stay on track,
reach your target dates,
and experience the exhilaration of achievement
that spurs you on
to continued effort required to reach your goal.

To determine if your goal is measurable,
ask questions such as……

How much? How many?

How will I know when it is accomplished?”

Your goals should be measurable
but your measurements shouldn’t
necessarily be your goals.

Just because I can count
the number of comments on this blog,
doesn’t mean getting more blog comments
should be my goal.

The trap of making measurements goals
is why I prefer to look at this attribute last.
