goals

Specific: Make sure you know exactly what you want. The clearer the goal, the more focused you’ll be about reaching it.

Measurable: If your goal can’t be measured, how do you know you’re getting closer to it. Find ways to measure your progress.

Attainable: Be realistic. You are better off making one big goal then create smaller ones that are realistic. Don’t bite off more then you can chew!

Rewards-Based: We love rewards. Our parents would reward us for getting good grades, who said we have to stop when we become adults!

Time Frame: We all need deadlines. What would happen if taxes weren’t due on April 15th? We would never get them done!
