Smart goal setting worksheet

A few points to help you get the most out of this worksheet:

  1. A goal that is SMART has a much greater chance of motivating us so it really pays to take the time to think and find creative ways to make your goal easy to measure.  
  2. Attainable is a bit of an awkward concept. Attainable we want but super easy we do not want. Reasonably challenging in a way only we know is right for us is the ideal.
  3. The most frightening part for us is often the timed part. Setting a date can be scary for sure. I guess because without the date there is no official point of failure; we have a goal but it's just not complete yet. 

However, I suggest that even when we do set a goal and don't reach it we are 100% not a failure!. The timed aspect is simply a tool that naturally creates increased inner motivation and creativity. We can set a date and time without a worry in the world and let it begin to work it magic on us.

The next steps

1. Once you have thought about and clearly established some solid SMART goals why not also print a copy of my goal setting worksheet and write your goal on there. I usually stick it on my wardrobe so I see it in the morning when I get changed and in the evening when I'm getting ready for bed. You may be thinking of a place you could put your goals now. It really makes a big difference when our goals and etched deeply in our life.

2. Make inspiration a part of your daily routine. As well as having goals that genuinely excite you reading something that motivates you to carry on can be a big help as well. I use this words of wisdom site, and this great quote site.

3. Be flexible and adjust your goals as necessary. Get the balance right so you feel proud of the efforts you are making while not obsessing over quick results.

So what can you do right this second to get started? 

1. Simply write down something you want to do, or some result you want to see.
2. Write down when you want to do it or see it by.
3. Check that it can be measured so you know when you have completed it.
4. Stick it up somewhere you see it every day and can't miss it.
5. Enjoy the motivation you have just created and let me know how it goes in the comments :-)

Happy Wise Goal Setting!
