SMART Acronym Newly Defined for Goal Setting….
  • I’ll start with S. In addition to specific, don’t stretching, systematic, synergistic, significant and shifting round out the picture?
  • M means measurable, but I also recommend meaningful, memorable, motivating and even, magical.
  • A is an achievable goal but A also needs to stand for action plans, accountability, acumen and agreed-upon.
  • R means relevant, but it also stands for realistic, reasonable, resonating, results-oriented, rewarding, responsible, reliable, rooted in facts and remarkable.
  • T means time-based and it also represents timely, tangible and thoughtful.
