Our job @CKDBrighton is to educate, motivate and assist you in reaching your optimum potential leading to a healthy life. Sometimes just a kind word or a motivational quote can change everything. Goal setting is a process that starts with careful consideration of what you want to achieve and ends with a lot of hard work. The SMART process is an effective way to set and meet your goals.
A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal, answer the five “W” questions:
- Who: Who is involved?
- What: What do I want to accomplish?
- Where: Where will I accomplish the goal?
- When: When will I work on my goal and what is a realistic time frame for reaching my goal?
- Why: What are the reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal?
- Choose goals that have results you can measure.
- When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates and
- experience the exhilaration of achievement.
- Think about what you can honestly achieve.
- Goal setting is a good way to push yourself beyond your current limits.
- So pick a goal that requires some effort, but choose a goal that is within reach.
- It feels great to reach a goal, but find extra ways to reward yourself along the way.
- Plan rewards ahead of time so you have something to look forward to.
- A goal should be grounded within a time frame.
- With no time frame tied to it there’s no sense of urgency.
- Keeping track of your progress will help you stay motivated.
- A goal is tangible when you can experience it with one of your senses; taste, touch, smell, sight or hearing.
