As we approach the new year, it is natural in getting back into gear towards setting and achieving goals. Whether it’s to return back your formal exercise routine or striving for that desired weight goal, setting ‘SMART’ goals may be a good approach to ensure it is accomplished.
What is SMART goal setting?
SMART goal setting brings structure and trackability into your goals and objectives.
What does S.M.A.R.T. goal setting stand for?
- Specific: What exactly do you want to achieve? The more specific, the bigger the chance you’ll get exactly that
- Measurable: Breaking down your goal into measurable elements. For example, “I will lose 5kg in two months’ time!” – needs to be realistic
- Attainable: Means investigating whether the desire goal is appropriate to you. Ensure to weigh the efforts of time, cost and other obligations and priorities you have in your life.
- Relevant: Main questions to ask, why do you want to reach this goal? What is the objective behind this goal, and will this goal really achieve that?
- Timely: Keep your timeline realistic and flexible, that way you can keep the drive high.
