How do you know when your business has become successful? What does success mean to you? What are your success factors in your goal setting? Do you know when you have reached your goal?

Do you even know what goals you should be setting??

There are so many different targets that you could set, but is chasing them all the right thing to do?

The best way to get your business heading in the right direction is to set realistic goals for success.

Success will mean different things to different businesses. It is up to you to make sure you are aiming for something that is right for your business.

S.M.A.R.T goal setting lets you define realistic, well-planned goals that will keep you motivated, stay focussed and ultimately stay on track.

What is S.M.A.R.T Goal setting?

SMART is an acronym defined as Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-Limited. It is an effective process for setting and achieving your business goals.

Use the SMART goal setting technique as follows:

  • Specific – A good goal includes specific details. The first step is to define a specific milestone you want to reach. Avoid goals that are too broad.
  • Measurable – To determine if you have been successful at meeting your goal you need to be able to track and measure it. You must define how you are going to measure your success so you know when and if you have met your objectives.
  • Achievable – An achievable goal is one that is realistic and that you can reasonably do.
  • Relevant – Your goals need to be meaningful to you so that you stay motivated. Don’t set goals that someone else wants you to obtain. Try and determine what is most important to you, and then define your goals.
  • Time-limited – Each goal should have a time limit that you can reasonably reach your goal. Giving yourself a time limit can motivate you to get started and stay on course.

By applying the SMART technique to all your goals, you will create specific, achievable goals to measure against.

Here’s a worksheet to help you define your SMART goals.
