Learn the SMART formula and set specific measurable goals that are relevant and achievable within a time frame.
Carol says she is successful because she constantly sets herself daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals. She distinguishes between short-term and longer-term goals and introduces the team to the goal acronym SMART:
S - Specific
M - Measurable
A - Achievable
R - Relevant
T - Timeframe
Sam says S is for Specific – goals should not be vague (such as aiming to be better) – and offers WH questions: “What do I want?, Why do I want it? and What steps will I take to get there?”. Steve adds that people should also ask “Who do I need to help me get there?” and “When will this happen?” Goals also need to be Measureable and Achievable. Goals must be Relevant and achieved within a Timeframe. Carol invites the team to set themselves a SMART goal. She introduces them to PEA:
P - Persist
E - Evaluate
A - Ask
A mentor can be instrumental in achieving goals; one should ask for help. Be clear about your goals. It's the first step towards results.
