Tiny Tip Thursday: SMART Goals

Everyone has goals, and you probably have a million of them yourself! Coming up with goals isn’t a problem for most people…it’s actually reaching those goals that’s the tough part.

One super common obstacle that we face when goal setting is vague goals. If we want to get the results we’re hoping for, we can’t be wishy-washy.

Could you use some help getting the things you dream about? Your goals just need a tune-up!

Today’s tiny tip will show you a quick exercise to make your goals completely doable. Rewrite your vague goals as SMART goals.

    Last year I decided I needed to make SMARTIE goals. They have to also be Inspired (or Intuited) and Exciting!

    Yay, I love these Tiny Tip Thursday videos! I want to earn a degree in Geology in a two year time period starting next fall and in order to get started I am going to apply to the school by December 1 🙂 Yay! I have always been guilty of having vague goals but you are definitely right, especially with large goals… it is so easy to fall into the trap of being vague with a really large, overwhelming goal.

      Awesome, Sarah! That’s a perfect SMART goal, and I’m so happy that you’re following your dream. 🙂
