Set Goals that are Measurable _ \"Determine a single measure that you can use to grade your progress and success in each area of your life. Refer to it daily.\" _ Brian Tracy. Goals are to be measurable solely for the benefit of being able to track your progress. It is no different than tracking your progress while driving your car to work. When you drive your car to work you know how far you\'ve gone and how far you need to go. It is simply not enough to say, \"I want to be physically fit.\" How will you know if you are physically fit? Try instead being more specific, an example of this might be, \"I run a 7 minute mile\". It\'s clear, precise, and measurable. _ Write Down Your Goals _ \"Write it down. Written goals have a way of transforming wishes into wants, cant\'s into cans, dreams into plans, and plans into reality. Don\'t just think it _ ink it!\" _ Author Unknown. Be sure that when you write down your goal it is clear, positive, and in present tense. An example of this is, \"I earn 贄ꯠ per year\". By simply writing down your goal you are making it become alive; you are making your goal a reality.
When you are establishing your goal, always follow the \"SMART\" system. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. Specific _ Have a specific plan and a definite goal which can be clearly understood. And once decided, vow to stick to it. Measurable _ The goal you have set should be measurable. For example, if you are in business, your goal should not be to just make it grow in 3 years time. Instead, set your goal something like this _ to make it grow by 40% or more in 3 years, so that at the end of the 3 years you can see actual progress.
