S M A R T formula

The most common approach to setting goals is the SMART formula. SMART is an acronym and it stands for:

  • Specific – the goal should be detailed and concise.
  • Measurable – you should be able to assign a measure of success.
  • Achievable – you should be able to accomplish the goal (given your workload and other commitments).
  • Realistic – the goal should be realistic (given your personal and professional circumstances).
  • Timely – the goal should have a timeline or due date.
