Now that we know what the SMART strategy is, let’s see how it works.
Let’s suppose my goal in 2018 is to do more yoga. I enjoy yoga because it relaxes me, and exercise makes all of us healthier and stronger.
Below is how to use the SMART strategy to reach my goal.
Specific: Do yoga.
Measureable: 5 hours per month.
Achievable: When I break it down, practicing yoga for 5 hours a month is approximately 10 minutes a day. See? That’s an achievable goal.
Time bound: You bet! I can work towards this goal daily and am accountable approximately every 30 days.
