Your goal should be as SPECIFIC as possible. Vague or generalized goals are hard to achieve because they don’t provide sufficient direction.
Include precise amounts, dates, and as much quantitative data as possible so that you can genuinely MEASURE your success down the road.
Be sure that your goal is ATTAINABLE. If your goal is to “get everyone I know to buy my product,” you’ll only end up demoralized and frustrated because there’s no way that everyone will do anything. Set the bar high, but don’t make it impracticable.
Goals should be RELEVANT to the direction you want your life to take. If you set goals that are scattered and inconsistent, you’re just wasting time.
Your goals must be TIME-BOUND and have a deadline. Not only does an upcoming deadline help create a sense of urgency that can act as a motivator, but you’ll know when you can celebrate a job well done.
