We get it, it can be so discouraging when you feel like you're spinning your wheels and not seeing any movement toward your goals and aren't sure how to measure your improvement toward your targets. This is typically due to vague goals being set without the clarity and definition to be attainable.
S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound) puts defined parameters to your goals to assure they are attainable and measurable. This clarity allows you the direction needed to focus the correct efforts toward achieving your goals.
