You are probably familiar with the goal of setting a learning-oriented approach: SMART goals. The method I'm going to write about is a little different. The process is called SMART goal. Why better? Because it's smarter than SMART. Let's see what SMARTERS stands for.
S stands for a particular one. Your goal must be as accurate as possible. Write a goal that is very special. Not "I want to be rich and famous". Be determined, for example, "I'm so happy and grateful now that I earn x amount of money and more per month from (date)". The second statement is much more accurate.
M stands for incentives. Your goal should encourage you. You want your goal to motivate you because if your goal is not stimulating, you leave it in the first hurdle. The bigger your goal, the bigger your obstacle to be. When you prevent a barrier, you will leave your goal because big marks have great barriers. If your goal is not encouraging enough, you'll start to see the obstacle, not the goal. Who's bigger? Is the barrier bigger or is the target bigger? If the goal is big enough, you will not see the obstacle. Napoleon Hill said, "I only see my goals, all obstacles must be given."
A stands for action. The goal must be active, which means there is some active function that you can do. There is something you can do. If you can not take action you can not do it, nothing can happen. Nothing can happen. Because in these three dimensions we must take action!
R stands for result-oriented. If there are no results, you can not recommend. You do not know how close or how far you are to the goal. The only way to measure the goal is that there must be some kind of success.
T represents a timeframe. It has to be temporary. There must be a certain time to achieve this goal. If there is no time frame, then it's not a goal. It's called a dream. What is the difference between goal and dream? The goal is a dream with a deadline.
E represents an ecological test, which means that it must pass ecological tests. You must test your goal to see that there is an ecological sound. You must test your goals against 5 effects on 5 episodes of your life. Ask yourself:
1) If I should achieve my goal, what is the effect on me?
2) If I should achieve my goal, what affects my family?
3) If I should achieve my goal, what affects my community?
4) If I should achieve my goal, what is the effect on my country?
5) What is the impact on the environment if I should achieve my goal?
Finally, R stands for reasons. The reasons you want this goal. You had a better reason. Whether you achieve this goal or not, may depend on your reasons. When you decide on the goal, you decide what. How is determined by power greater than you. Why (your reasons) will determine if you will achieve your goals.
