SMART Goal Setting The following are components of an effective goal – one that describes performance standards that will “tell us what good behavior looks like”. The SMART acronym can help us remember these components. SMART Goals Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Timely Steps for Effective Goal Setting Develop several goals. A list of 5-7 items gives you several things to work on over a period of time. State goals as a declaration of intention; not items on a wish list. “I want to apply to three schools” lacks power. “I will apply to three schools” is intentional and powerful. Effective Goal Setting Attach a date to each goal. State what you intend to accomplish and by when. A good list should include some short term and long term goals. Be specific. “To find a job” is too general; “to find and research five job openings before the end of the month” is better. Effective Goal Setting Share your goals with someone who cares if you reach them. Sharing your intentions with your parents, best friend, or your teacher will help ensure success. Write down your goals and put them where you will see them. The more often you read your list, the more results you get. Effective Goal Setting Review and revise your list. Experiment with different ways of stating your goals. Goal setting improves with practice, so play around with it. Effective Goal Setting Summary: 1. Develop several goals. 2. State goals as a declaration of intention; not items on a wish list. 3. Attach a date to each goal. 4. Be specific. 5. Share your goals with someone who cares if you reach them. 6.

Make the branches closest to the center thicker, and make the attached branches farther from the center thinner. Each line must be connected, starting from the central image.
