(Jim Rohn One Years Success Plan)
Second Second Pillar of Jim Rohn: Objective, Third Part – SMART Goal
Hi, Jim Rohn here. As you know, we are focusing on the second part of the project this month – Objective.
We have introduced four main sections of the target audience:
1. Food and Meditation.
The only way we can properly decide what we want in the future and how we will get there is first knowing where we are now and secondly, what our satisfaction is for where we are in life. As we focus on this month on goals, our first order and our content for two weeks was food and meditation.
2. Dreams and goals.
What are your dreams and goals? Unrelated to the past or what you think you can get, but what you want. Have you ever been really put down and thinking about the value of life and decide what you want? This is not something somebody else says you should have or what culture tells us that successful people do or have. These are dreams and goals born out of your own heart and mind. These are the goals that are unique to you and come from those you had been and talented to become. Last week we show you exactly how to find out what you want from life.
3. SMART Goal.
SMART means special, measurable, achievable, realistic and temporary.
Spec: Do not be unclear. Exactly what do you want?
Measurable: Increase your goal. How do you know if you have achieved it or not?
Available: Be honest about what you can achieve at this point in your life – taking into account the current responsibility.
Realistic: It must be possible, real and practical.
Time: Connect the time limit to each goal. When should you finish the goal?
We will spend time this week and see how to use the SMART exam with the goals to make sure they are as powerful as they can be!
Think about the word "accounting". That means "give up an account." When someone knows what the goals are, they help you to be responsible. Whether there is anyone else going through this program with you (have you been invited to invite friends to join you on this one-year trip?) Or just someone you can give the basic idea of having a person who can hold you accounting will give you another boost to achieve your goals! Next week we will show you how to set up accounting companies.
This week we will discuss paragraph 3 – SMART Objectives.
SMART means special, measurable, achievable, realistic and temporary.
I really like this abbreviation SMART, because we want to be smart when we set our goals. We want to determine what our goals are so we can really reach them. We want to set the goals that our hearts think, believe our minds, and that our bodies will perform. Let's examine each part of the SMART boundary:
Spec: The goal is not a scene. They are not a place to be vague. Unclear goals produce vague results. Insufficient goals produce insufficient future.
When we are determined, we use the power of our dreams and put forces in action that strengthen us to achieve our goals. We know exactly what we are shooting at. There is no question. When we take our priorities and manage our time, we make it a definite goal to achieve the results that we expect. It's no wonder or guess. The future is locked in our minds and we see it – especially – and it's powerful! Never underestimate just how important it is to have very specific, specific goals. They act as magnets that draw you to them! A SMART goal is special.
Measurable: Always set targets that are measurable. I would say "especially measurable" to take into account our principle of being specific as well. Our goal should be that we know when we are expanding and how much. Whether it's after an hour, pound, dollar or whatever, we should be able to see exactly how we're measuring up as we move on through our lifestyles using our goals. Could you imagine if you did not meet your goals? You would never know which way you were going or even if you were going somewhere! SMART goal is measurable.
Success: One of the harmful things many people do – and they do it with good intentions – set goals that are so high that they can not be achieved. Yes, it is very important to set big goals that cause your heart to be so tense, but it is also important to make sure they are done. In the next section we are talking about being realistic. So what does it mean to be achieved? Enjoying goals that are both realistic and achievable in less time than what you need to work with. Now that I say it's possible, it does not mean easy. Our goal should be set so that they are just out of our reach; so they will challenge us to grow when we reach out to reach them. Following the next paragraph, I will give you examples of both accessible and realistic goals. A SMART goal is achieved.
Realistic: The root word realistically is "real". The goal must be something we can reasonably do "real" or "reality" in our lives. There are some goals that are simply not realistic. You must be able to say, even though it is an amazingly excellent goal, yes, it is actually completely realistic – that you could do it. You may even have to say that it will take x, y and z to do it, but if it happens then it can be done. This can not be said at all, it should not be a big goal, but it must be realistic. This is largely all about the individual. For one person, the goal can be realistic, but otherwise unrealistic. I would encourage you to be very honest with yourself as you did planning and food. Sometimes it's good to have a friend to help you (as long as a friend is naturally optimistic and not pessimistic). This can go a long way towards helping you know what is realistic. A SMART goal is realistic.
Example of accurate and realistic: Knowing that maybe you could use a little help that distinguishes accurately and realistically. Here's an example: You're too heavy and have 150 pounds to lose weight. Is this goal achievable? Yes, considering that you make it realistic too. For example, it's not realistic to think you can do it for 5 months. 18-24 months would be realistic (with hard work). So losing 150 pounds in 2 years is both feasible and realistic, but losing 150 pounds for 5 months is either reachable or realistic.
Time: Every goal should have a time limit. I think life itself is much more productive for us as humans because timing relates to it. Could you imagine how much deferral would be on earth if people never died? We will never get 'around it'. We could always terminate it. One of the most powerful aspects of a high goal is that it ends when you shoot to achieve it. You start working with it because you know it's over. As time goes by, you work out that you do not want to get behind. As you approach it, you work hard because you want to meet the deadline. You may even need to break down big goals in different measured time frames. It's okay. Set smaller goals and work them out at your own time. A SMART goal has a timeline.
Be sure to spend time in this review this week to make sure your goals are consistent with SMART parameters. Browse through the reflection below and action points related to them. Do it will put a real machine into your goals and let them have their power to help you achieve your dreams.
Until next week, we will do something interesting!
