Key Learning Points
Achieving SMART Goals defines the SMART formula for achieving goals.
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 Specific – 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 Measureable 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.
