SMART Goals
• Goals are the steps to a vision.
• To ensure goals effectively lead to a
vision, we use SMART Goals.

Specific
Measurable
Attainable
Relevant
Timely
• Example Vision: Become a doctor.
Specific
• A goal must be specific to ensure a
clear understanding.
– If a goal has multiple interpretations, which do
you choose?
• Example: “I want to go to school for
something in the medical field.”
– What kind of school? To become a radiologist,
a dentist, etc.?
– This goal is unspecific—how can we improve
it?
Measurable
• A goal needs to be clear when it is
accomplished.
– Without it, a goal could never get done, or be
accomplished incorrectly.
• Example: “I want to save some money
to attend UW-Parkside this fall.”
– How much money does Parkside cost? How
will you know when you have enough saved?
– “Some money” is immeasurable—how can we
refine this goal?
Attainable
• A goal needs to be realistic.
– Attempting to fulfill an impossible goal won’t
help attain a vision.
• Example: “I want to cure the common
cold.”
– Curing the common cold is impossible;
attempting this goal would stop you indefinitely
from moving on.
– How can we improve this goal?
Relevant
• Goals need to pertain to your vision.
– Why bother to work on something that won’t
help fulfill your vision?
• Example: “I want to watch medical
shows.”
– Is House so realistic? How would watching TV
drama help become a doctor?
– Can we make a goal more relevant to
becoming a doctor?
Timely
• A goal needs to have a deadline, a date
to accomplish it by.
– If there is no due date, goals may never be
completed.
• Example: “I want to get an assistant
job in a hospital as soon as possible.”
– “As soon as possible” may quickly devolve into
“whenever I feel like it,” which won’t help your
vision.
– What can we do to fix this goal?
Vision
Successfully complete a
marathon.
