How to Achieve SMART Goals shows how to set and achieve specific measurable goals. Don't focus on vague aspirations – set clear, realistic goals that provide a clear direction. Consider what can actually be done, and be realistic about how you will get there. A final goal can be reached by setting smaller steps and milestones along the way.
In this How to Achieve SMART Goals course you learn from the entertaining Cutting Edge team, to set clear and specific objectives to help you succeed. They may be short-term goals, daily, weekly, or longer term goals. You will learn to apply the SMART goal formula and a persistence formula to achieve goals. The goals you set need to be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and have a time frame. Visualizing achieving your goals can help you succeed. You will need to be persistent, evaluate your goals and ask for feedback and help from a mentor.
