Goal Specifics

Updated: Jul 5

SMART goals are:

  • Specific: Well defined, clear, and unambiguous

  • Measurable: With specific criteria that measure your progress toward the accomplishment of the goal

  • Achievable: Attainable and not impossible to achieve

  • Realistic: Within reach, realistic, and relevant to your life purpose

  • Timely: With a clearly defined timeline, including a starting date and a target date. The purpose is to create urgency.

 

SMART Goal – Specific

Goals that are specific have a significantly greater chance of being accomplished. To make a goal specific, the five “W” questions must be considered:

  1. Who: Who is involved in this goal?

  2. What: What do I want to accomplish?

  3. Where: Where is this goal to be achieved?

  4. When: When do I want to achieve this goal?

  5. Why: Why do I want to achieve this goal?

 

For example, a general goal would be “I want to get in shape.” A more specific goal would be “I want to obtain a gym membership at my local community center and work out four days a week to be healthier.”
