Them VS Me
Most people write SMART goals – specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. I write Survival goals which stands for nothing other than being as SMART as you can while working toward maintaining some semblance of sanity.
I do believe that having clear goals helps one accomplish what one wants to accomplish without feeling overwhelmed by a seemingly unending list of things to do. For instance, my goal of writing 500 words each weekday has alleviated the stress of wondering if I have written enough or not. Once I have met that daily goal I am done for the day and can focus on other important things.
My Approach to Goal Setting
At the moment, my approach to monthly goal setting is pretty straightforward and lax. At the end of the month I look at my goals for the year along with my calendar for the upcoming month. Then I set my goals according to those parameters while attempting to be as SMART as I can. I’ve come to learn that writing SMART goals takes practice, so I’m hoping to get better as I stay accountable to you.
