SMART Goal Setting for 2019

It's week 2 of 2019, and I bet your resolutions are still going strong.

But will you be going strong on week 50?

Here are some tips to stick to your resolutions and achieve your S-M-A-R-T goals for 2019.

S - Specific - "Eating healthier" is not specific. Instead "eat lean protein, whole grains and fruit/vegetables at every meal."

M - Measurable - "Save more" is not measurable. Instead "save an extra $500 per month".
A - Attainable - "Shooting 72" is not attainable if you currently shoot over 100. Instead "shoot under 85".
R - Realistic - "Eating lean protein, whole grains and fruit/vegetables at every meal" is not realistic (gotcha!). Instead "eat lean protein, whole grains and fruit/vegetables at every meal except Sundays" (for the cheat meal of course).
T - Timely - "Lose weight" is not timely. Instead "lose 15 lbs by June 1st".

My SMART goals for this year are:

Professionally:

1. Work with 33 new young families by December 31st.

2. Hire our first full-time Associate Financial Planner by June 30th.

Personally:

1. Place 1st in the Masters Division of the INBA competition on May 26th.

2. Consistently shoot under 85 by December 31st.

What are your SMART goals for the year ahead?

Let me know and we can check in with each other on week 50!
