SMARTER Objectives

The clearer we define our objectives, the easier it is to achieve them. Have a look at the SMARTER acronym:

Specific [Write them down with as much detail as possible]

Measurable [Describe them numerically so they can be measured (e.g., number of weekly training sessions)] 

Actions [include relevant actions]

Realistic [Take into account the resources and time available and your capabilities]    

Time [Enter a deadline]

Evaluate the objectives […To see if you are achieving them]

Review them […To see what have you done well and what do you need to improve]
