How to Write a SMART Goal
This simple goal journal can keep you on track, but it can't do the work for you!
Create SMART goals if you want to accomplish MAJOR success!
In the box labeled "My Goal" write an broad goal like
"I want to improve my health."
Then write a specific goal that meets the above criteria.
I will complete 10 push ups at 7:30 AM today.
-This goal is specific
-10 is measurable
-It's definitely attainable, but may need some adjustments to start with
-It pertains to my broad goal, so it is relevant
-7:30 AM makes it time-bound
In the box labeled "Action Steps" add any additional details/reflect on whether or not you completed that goal for the day and what adjustments (if any) need to be made.
I was unable to do 10 push ups. I accomplished 5.
I will continue to do 5 push ups each day this week and strive to complete 6 each day next week, until I am able to complete 10 consecutive push ups.
Broad Goal: "I want to save money."
SMART goal: I will take $20 dollars out of each check (at the time I am paid) and transfer it directly into a savings account.
In addition to transferring money to my savings account I am also going to abstain from going through drive-thru restaurants. I will make my coffee at home. I will meal prep. I will allow myself one drive-thru on the first Monday of each month. This is a 3 month goal.
Broad Goal: "I want to read the entire Bible in a year."
SMART Goal: I will download The Bible App You Version today at 3 PM.
Action Steps: I will search on the app where it says plans then type in Bible in a year. I will choose from the options which one that most appeals to me. I will use the reminder feature to set a reminder in my phone to help me stay on track!
