#347b: Setting SMART Goals

There are a million posts in the internet about setting SMART goals – Specific, Measurable, Aggressive (I know, you’ve read Attainable before, but isn’t that the same thing as realistic?), Realistic, and Timely.  Anyway, what is my point here?

If I’m going to live my life on purpose, I need some SMART goals.  I’ve done goals before – so I need to add an “A” to my SMART – Accountability.  I wanted this blog to be my accountability – but lets be honest, my mother died 10 years ago, so you and me are the only two people reading this thing and you are most likely my imaginary friend – no offense, but you make a terrible accountability partner!

Regardless – I do plan to list my goals here as a public record.  I haven’t quite decided how I want to list them yet.  One long post that I have to keep going back to seems difficult to manage.  What about a new “Goals” category that I would use to post each goal as its own post?  I think I will do that – stay tuned…
