Are your goals measurable?
Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set. What good is a goal that you can’t measure? If your goals are not measurable, you never know whether you are making progress toward their successful completion. When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to continued effort required to reach your goal. To determine if your goal is measurable, ask questions such as:
• How much?
• How many?
• How will I know when it is accomplished?
