In response to a previous post, several people asked what I would like to do or a variation of the question. The answer is . . . “it depends.” The question, though it sounds straight forward, is not detailed enough. The question is really asking my goal. All goals, no matter how simple, must be SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time sensitive.
To be a SMART goal, the question should be worded differently. Perhaps, the goal should be worded as follows: Between now and the end of 2017, what would I realistically like to accomplish and how could I measure progress?
Are the following SMART goals?
- Eat nutritious meals and snacks seven days per week
- Exericse more than six hours per week
- Sleep at least six hours per day, seven days per week
- Volunteer at not-for-profit organizations more than 25 hours per month
- Speak at three or more organizations per month
- Make progress in learning American Sign Language
- Make progress in reading braille
- Improve my chess skills
