In the BE SMART guidelines for writing goals, “M” stands for measurable. If your goals aren’t concrete
and measurable, they’re not goals–they’re simply wishes or dreams and good luck in bringing them to fruition.
The more clarity we have in terms of identifying where we are going, the easier it is to mark our progress, to know what has to happen to achieve our aims and to know when we get there. So ensure that you have measurement criteria and target completion dates for each of your goals.
As you proceed with your action plan, it helps to plot out on your goal sheet each month, the accumulated expected measurable results and the actual results. Are you on track? If not, what needs to happen to bring you back on track?
