Whether your business has over 100 employees or you’re running an empire of one, goal setting is important to ensure your success. If you’re not sure how to do this, SMART goals are a great way to get started. SMART is an acronym that stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound goals. The purpose of your goals is to make sure they are very clear and easy to understand.

  • Specific: This is where you are going to clearly state what you want to achieve. Make sure you include who will be involved, when it will be achieved, and what outcomes you need to see in order to determine that it is a success. 
  • Measurable: Why do you need to measure your goals? Because measuring is going to help you understand if you’re on track to achieve them. 
  • Attainable: Of course, your goals should be achievable. If you create unreachable goals, then you’re setting yourself up for failure. 
  • Relevant: Your goals should relate to your overall business objectives. Make sure you consider trends in your industry as well. 
  • Time-Bound: In order to ensure your goals actually get accomplished, you need to set a deadline as to when you would like to achieve them. This will help you stick to your plan

Specific: What exactly will you accomplish? 

Measurable: How will you know when you have reached this goal? 

Attainable: Is achieving this goal realistic with effort and commitment? Do you have the resources to achieve this goal? If not, how will you get them?

Relevant: Why is this goal significant to your life? 

Time-Bound: When will you achieve this goal?
