30 DAY LIFE CHALLENGE (2)Measurable Goals

Now that you have your goals set for the year, you’ll want to make sure these are measurable goals. A measurable goal is something you can measure to know whether you are meeting your goal. Goals are measurable if they meet the SMART Test created by Peter Drucker. Your challenge today is to make sure each of your goals meet the SMART test.

Specific: Goals should clearly define what you want to happen. For instance, if you want to be a writer, a specific goal would be to write a novel in 2015.

Measurable: Each goal should have small measurements built into the goal. For instance, with writing the novel, the measurements might be do research, outline novel, study five books about how to write a novel, and write 5,000 words a week. Using these measurements, you’ll know if you are making progress.

Attainable: Goals need to be able to be completed even if they stretch you. For instance, if you have never written a novel, being published as a novelist in 2015 is not attainable unless you decide to self-publish. However writing your first novel is attainable.

Realistic: Realistic goals mean doable, not easy. It is doable to write a novel in a year, but it will stretch you.

Timely: Set a time frame for your goal to be completed. To do this, you should also set a deadline for each of the smaller measurable steps toward the goal.
