Writing Goals 

Ok, so you’ve written down some basic goals.  Is it a well written goal though?  Does it assist you in having a healthy life?


Eight Qualities Of Well Written Goals

Read through my SMARTIES formula for writing goals.  It contains my eight qualities of a well written goal and see how yours compares. 

  1. Specific:  List the precise outcomes you what to achieve.
  2. Measurable:   Record how will you measure or determine whether it has been achieved.  Numbers, % etc are really useful with this aspect.
  3. Action oriented:   This let’s you know what you have to do to achieve it
  4. Realistic:  This aspect gets you to check in on your beliefs, whether you believe it is possible for you to achieve.
  5. Timebound:  Record the date by which you will have completed it.
  6. Inspirational:   Make sure you have a big “why” to drive you to take action.
  7. Ecological:  Check that it’s aligned with your values, and that it’s good for you and others,
  8. Sustainable:  Make sure that you can consistently apply yourself to the actions required to achieve it.

How did you go?  Were you able to tick either of these 8 off?

If so, well done, you’ve made a great start!

If not, then make some adjustments to tweak them.  Then re-write your goals.  Keep tweaking them until you have clearly written goals and outcomes, and that you really would really love to achieve.
