Setting SMART goals

Setting SMART goals can help you grow your business. Although I’ve been setting goals for years, I only recently learned about SMART goals. (Granted, the system I was using before was pretty similar.) My friend Melanie recently helped me outline some SMART goals for my business.

SMART goals are:

  • Specific – who, what, when, where, why?
  • Measurable – what gets measured gets done, right?
  • Attainable – pick goals that are achievable, given your abilities and constraints
  • Realistic – you must truly believe it can be accomplished
  • Timely – set a date for meeting the goal

In an upcoming post, I’ll discuss some ideas for setting SMART goals for your consulting business.
