Before you think about setting goals, review the five parts of SMART goals.
||A smart goal is specific. It pinpoints something you want to change to achieve.|
||A smart goal is measurable. You can measure or count a SMART goal.|
||A smart goal is achievable. Setting goals too high can lead to frustration.|
||A smart goal is rewarding. Reaching the goal should be a reward for your hard work.|
||A smart goal is trackable. Set milestones and schedules for your goals.|
