And Measurable Goals
Remember, to be useful, a goal
has to be specific and measurable so that you:
- Know what to work toward
Goals help to give us direction.
There are many things we can be doing at any point in time, but goals
help us to choose among all of these possibilities. Goals tell us
what is really important to us and help us to keep a positive attitude
about reaching them.
- Can tell when you have finished
and have achieved your goal
If you don't know where
you are going, it is difficult to know if you get there. Goals need
to be specific and measurable so we can judge when we have completed
or reached the goal. If there were no clear way to tell if we reached
a goal, we would not know when to stop.
