    229. Smart Goal Setting: Easy Tips that Actually Work

    Links Mentioned: productiveinsights.com/membership Productive Insights Membershipproductiveinsights.com/175 conversation with James Clearproductiveinsights.com/207 conversation with Brian TracySMART goal setting is more than just a buzzword. It's a transformative strategy that can turn your aspirations into achievements. In this video, I'm going to talk about exactly how you can use the SMART goal setting system to turn your dreams into a reality. SMART is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time bound.And by applying this smart system to your goal setting and achievement, you can not only dream big, but actually achieve big. So let's get started somewhere along my journey. When I was completing my undergraduate degree in business and then my CPA, and then my MBA, while working in banking and finance, I realized how crucial the smart goal setting system was for success.But I also realized that alone wasn't enough more on that later first let's break down the smart goal setting system into its five components and why it's so essential to us. Okay, let's talk about the first part of the smart goal setting system. During my undergrad in business, my goals were vague and unfocused. They were anything but specific. And guess what? My results bore that out. If I had been clear about what grades I wanted, What coursework I had to complete by when, chances are I would have done a lot better. If I thought about why it was important for me to achieve my goals, my results would have been much better than just average.Imagine if I had set clear goals like achieve at least an A in accounting. By studying three times a week and completing all my assignments at least two days in advance so that I could maintain a high grade point average, that could have completely transformed my academic career. Well, as it turns out, I was a lot more specific with my goal setting when I did my MBA a little bit later on.And I ended up getting a distinction average from the leading business school in Australia. So the specificity did work. For you, as a business owner, this translates to being crystal clear on what you want to achieve, when you want to achieve it, and most importantly, why it's important to you that you achieve it.Maybe it's your family. Maybe it's a professional aspiration you want to fulfill.
