I’d forgotten about this goal acronym and it’s a good one to incorporate. If I blog about it I’m far more likely to remember it the next time I’m setting new goals, which should happen in a few weeks as we soon ring in the new year (hence new goals/resolutions).
I like all of these points. “M” and "A” are probably the most salient points to me. If a goal can’t be measured then I’m not sure it can really be considered a goal.
And attainable probably speaks to the realist in me. If it’s too pie-in-the-sky thinking it’s hard to take seriously. My personal goals need to be a stretch but something I can really reach.
So, maybe I’m not all that smart but at least I can set goals that are smart!
