Are S.M.A.R.T Goals Actually Stupid?

If you do a little research you’ll find lots of information about goal setting and why it’s important for you and your business.

You’ll discover benefits like “Clearer Focus”, “Easier Measurement of What You Do”, and “Effective Use of Time.”

Of course, those are all good things and important benefits.

You’ll also find a lot of different models as well.

One of the most common models is the S.M.A.R.T. approach. This system encourages you to set realistic goals that you can achieve in a specific period of time.

But the S.M.A.R.T. model has a problem! You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone to admit to it, though.

The real question you need to be asking though is: “Will they help me get results and will they work for ME?”

Let’s talk about three of the most common goal setting models and see if we can answer this question and identify the problem with the S.M.A.R.T. system.
