What are SMART Goals?

Businesses love to use the acronym SMART as a framework for making meaningful goals. SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. 

S: Specific

Don’t be afraid to write goals that have specific details. When you know exactly what you are working towards it is easier to take steps to achieve the goal.

M: Measurable

It’s important that your goals are measurable so you can track your progress throughout the year. Pro tip: set benchmarks along the way!

A: Achievable
