It’s Monday, the first workday of the week for me and all you other office rats. And most of the time people hate Mondays, but today I have a feeling it could be alright.
If I want to make today and this week count, though, there are a few things I need to do, and one of those things is to avoid wasting time. Thinking about this a few minutes ago, as I poured myself a bowl of almond crunch cereal, reminded me of this goal-setting guide:
S – specific
M – measurable
A – attainable
R – relevant
T – timely
By setting goals that have a deadline and a specific plan for success, we’re far more likely to achieve them. I also find that writing down my goals really helps. By asking yourself whether a goal is relevant helps you keep your overall goal in the forefront of your mind and avoid being distracted.
So that’s my plan for today – figure out what needs to be done this week and set up a SMART plan for how to make it all happen! If you’re interested in more details on SMART, check out this page.
What’s on your to-do list for this week that SMART could help you achieve?
