Understanding SMART Goals
SMART goals are well-formulated goals that are specific (S), measurable (M), achievable (A), relevant (R), and time-bound (T).
SMART goals give specific, realistic, and measurable direction to what you want to achieve, and it is highly likely that it can be achieved within the specific time period.
S in SMART goals stand for specific. It is the who, what, why, where, and how of the SMART model.
It defines the measurable evidence that proves the progress you are making.
It makes sure that the goal can be accomplished within a certain timeframe.
A realistic goal takes into account the practical scenario and the direction where the organisation is heading to.
A time-bound goal sets a realistic yet achievable end date for task prioritisation and motivation.
