SMART goals

When I brainstormed goals to motivate me in my debt-free journey I remembered reading about SMART goals in several blogs near the beginning of the year. I decided to rewrite my goals to be SMARTer. As you probably know, SMART is an acronym for specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely. My original goal are in blue, with additions in red.




1. Post my info on NCN network http://www.ncnnetwork.com/ (by next Sunday) I've seen those cute pie charts on other blogs.
2. Look for other visuals to reflect my debt-free journey (by next Sunday). Suggestions, anyone?




I realize that these are just itty-bitty goals, but they were fun to do and they meet the criteria for SMART goals. I'll let you know if they were relevant--if they were motivating on my journey.

It is good to revisit those goals often. This is the process I am in at the moment. Trying to define and refine my plan and goals.

DLD,
I think I will make monthly goals for September. How about you? I'll check your website for updates!

i set goals every month - it really helps to break the big things down into smaller things and see your progress!
