We often talk about success indicators with our clients. The start of the year is a good time to take a look at your goals and what you’re hoping to achieve throughout it.
Three often unthought of great reasons for setting some SMART success indicators are:
1. It means that you know when you’ve succeeded! If you don’t have a specific and measurable target then you will never know when you have reached it and then you can’t celebrate. Any excuse to celebrate.
2. Smart goals also help with shiny balls, otherwise known as distractions. If you know what you want to achieve then you are less likely to be distracted and veer off course.
3. Lastly, it means you won’t be so bothered by your competitors. You might see them off doing all sorts of amazing things and start to panic that you should be doing similar things, or are not as successful as them. But if you know clearly in your mind what it is you want to achieve then you won’t be concerned with what they are up to. Good for them. Celebrate their success whilst knowing you are still on track to reach YOUR dream.
