On the fifth day of Careers-mas, Gary gave to me… fiiiiive steps to setting achievable goals (doesn’t quite have the same ‘ring’ to it hahaha!!).
Use the SMART approach when setting your careers goals:
|S||Specific|| What do I want to accomplish?
Why do I want to accomplish this?
What are the requirements/constraints?
|M||Measurable|| How will I measure my progress?
How will I know when my goal is accomplished?
|A||Achievable|| How can the goal be accomplished?
What are the logical steps I should take?
|R||Relevant|| Is this a worthwhile goal?
Is it in line with my long term career goals?
Do I have the resources to complete this goal?
|T||Time-bound|| How long will it take to accomplish this goal?
When will I complete it by?
