Next time you set goals for yourself, keep the following SMART model in mind!

SPECIFIC: It is easier to accomplish a more specific goal than one that is general or vague. Instead of “eat healthy,” you may want to “eat breakfast every morning.” Or instead of “get in shape,” try “join a gym and work out 4 days a week.”

MEASURABLE: : Identify concrete ways to measure your progress. This helps to ensure that you stay on track by answering the question, “how will I know when this goal is accomplished?”

ATTAINABLE: Goals must be realistic, allowing you to answer the question, “how can this goal be accomplished?” An attainable goal allows you to begin overcoming barriers that may have stopped you from achieving the goal in the past, while developing the attitude and skills necessary for success.

RELEVANT: Choose goals that will best move you forward and improve your lifestyle, while being worthwhile and beneficial.

TIMELY: Setting certain time-frames motivate you to accomplish goals more readily. Instead of losing weight “soon,” aim to lose 1-2 pounds each week. Work expands to the time allotted, so set deadlines that will push you to stay focused.
