No, no that Smart. Get S.M.A.R.T about setting Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic and Time-Targeted goals.
There is a school of thought that suggests goal-setting is an effective tool for making progress toward a desired goal. Being clearly aware of what is expected helps one work toward, and meet, objectives.
Studies have shown that specific and ambitious goals lead to a higher level of performance than easy or general goals. It has been said that "Goal setting capitalizes on the human brain's amazing powers: Our brains are problem-solving, goal-achieving machines."
With that thought in mind I set some S.M.A.R.T. goals concerning my writing. When I didn't meet all of them by my end of the week deadline, I revised and made new ones for this week. I've discovered that setting S.M.A.R.T. goals provide me a road map toward the finish line. I don't always make it across on the first try, but at least I know there is an end in sight. And that keeps me moving forward.
How do you get across the finish line? Do you set goals? Is goal setting effective for you?
