Are you working out S.M.A.R.T.?

We all want to live a healthy lifestyle.  Having goals is key to obtaining what we want.  Often times our goals are not met because they are either unclear or we have unrealistic expectations.  A good way to overcome this is to set S.M.A.R.T.  goals.

  • S   - Specific
  • M - Measurable
  • A  - Attainable/Achievable
  • R - Realistic
  • T - Time Based

  • Your goals should be clear
  • well defined
  • Your reason
  • Your purpose
  • Your "Why"
  • Measuring the progress towards your goal
  • How Much, how long, etc.
  • How will this goal be accomplished?
  • Is it within your grasp?
  • Is this goal possible to achieve?
  • Are your sights set too high?
  • Does it fit your "why"?
  • Set a time frame
  • Give yourself enough time
  • Don't give too much time or your goal will never be met
