Do you have a SMART goal? 🤓

A SMART goal is specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and timely.⠀

For example, some of you may know, I'm not only a copywriter, but I'm also a mental health advocate and a psychotherapist in training. My goal is to own a private practice where I help people deal with their mental illness and motivate them to live their best life. There are some things I need to consider with this goal.⠀

Is it specific? It's specific and I broke it down even further into steps. I first need to graduate with my Masters's degree. Then I need to work 3 years under supervision. Finally, I can have my private practice.⠀

Is it measurable? I can measure my success by the grades I get in all my classes, making internship hours, getting a good job after graduation, and constantly learning!⠀

Is it achievable? I certainly believe so. I graduated with my Bachelor's, which gave me the skills I need for graduate school.⠀

Is it relevant? It is because I believe it is my life's purpose to help people.⠀

Is it timely? I know it will take me 5 more years to reach this goal. This is a rather long term goal, but that's ok because I broke it up into achievable steps. I need 2 more years to get my Master's (I'm doing part-time) and 3 more years of working under supervision.⠀

And you damn well know I celebrate every achievement in between? 🎉⠀

Smart goals are great if you are among the part of the population that are able to stick with that way of working, for me it does not work as I belong to the other part of the population, I work with direction and consistency chains instead, that works for me, and I have got great results that way even if smart goals are often more effective, but that's if you are able to follow them in the first place.

Yeah, everyone is different so the same technique won't work for every single person.

It's great that you found a way that works for you! That's the most important part! As long as it works for YOU.

And thank you for sharing! I always love to hear the different techniques that people use. It helps expand my knowledge!

Yes new ideas helps us to keep on growing, enjoy your day.
