About

Lean the SMART formula and set specific measurable goals that are relevant and achievable within a time frame.

Carol says she is successful because she constantly sets herself daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals. She distinguishes between short-term and longer-term goals and introduces the team to the goal acronym: SMART. Sam says S is for S pecific – goals should not be vague (such as aiming to be better) – and offers WH questions: “What do I want?, Why do I want it? and What steps will I take to get there?”. Steve adds that people should also ask “Who do I need to help me get there?” and “When will this happen?” Goals also need to be M easureable and Achievable. Goals must be Relevant and achieved within a Timeframe. Carol invites the team to set themselves a SMART goal. She introduces them to PEA: Persist, Evaluate and Ask. A mentor can be instrumental in achieving goals; one should ask for help.
