Only 3% have SMART goals!

Why is it that most people have no goals?

Only 3% of people have clear, written, specific, measurable, time-bounded goals, and by every statistic, they accomplish ten times as much as people with no goals at all.

Living your life without goals and objectives is setting off across unknown territory with no road signs and no road map. You have no choice but to make it up as you go along, reacting verses responding to whatever happens, and hoping for the best. If you are doing well today without written goals and plans, you could probably be doing many times better in the future if you had clear targets to aim at and the ability to measure your progress as you go along. It is vital to have goal setting objectives.

You have two choices in life: You can either work on your own goals, or you can work for someone else, and work on achieving their goals.

Which one are you?

  1. Kenneth,

    Great post! I’ve been using SMART goals for years and definitely agree that one is more likely to achieve their goals when they have specific, measureable and timely goals. Here is a post talking more about the mechanics of SMART goals.

    You have me thinking I need to review my goals one more time! Thanks for sharing.
