SMART Goal Setting

Post its about setting goals New year, new you? Nah, that’s not entirely necessary, you’re pretty epic just as you are, but I guess since you are here, you have dreams for your future that you’d love to realise.


Planning and goal setting is an important part of any dream, because if you don’t create a plan that will get you to your goal, then you are just dreaming. You must know the destination you are heading towards, otherwise any road will do. 


Setting goals on paper helps you to focus on exactly what you need to do to achieve your goals. A well-set goal will highlight exactly what you are looking to achieve and by when. I tend to set short-term, medium-term, long-term and very long-term goals – this gives me a vision for my future and keeps me focused.

Grab your journal, planner or some paper and using the SMART methodology and based on your goals for 2022, set yourself some goals for the short, medium and long term. Try answering the below questions for 3, 6, 9 and 12 months and then for three-plus years.
