Ok, so you’ve written down some basic goals. Is it a well written goal though? Does it assist you in having a healthy life?
Eight Qualities Of Well Written Goals
Read through my SMARTIES formula for writing goals. It contains my eight qualities of a well written goal and see how yours compares.
- Specific: List the precise outcomes you what to achieve.
- Measurable: Record how will you measure or determine whether it has been achieved. Numbers, % etc are really useful with this aspect.
- Action oriented: This let’s you know what you have to do to achieve it
- Realistic: This aspect gets you to check in on your beliefs, whether you believe it is possible for you to achieve.
- Timebound: Record the date by which you will have completed it.
- Inspirational: Make sure you have a big “why” to drive you to take action.
- Ecological: Check that it’s aligned with your values, and that it’s good for you and others,
- Sustainable: Make sure that you can consistently apply yourself to the actions required to achieve it.
How did you go? Were you able to tick either of these 8 off?
If so, well done, you’ve made a great start!
