2) This Month’s Goals (30 days of lists)

10 May

For May 2012

Back in the mists of time, I learnt about SMART targets, as part of my mangement training. I actually still use this when thinking about my current life and what I want to achieve.

All goals must be:






We used this anacronym for goal setting for our teams, departments and ourselves. Now, most of my short-term goals are personal, but there is no point in setting them unless they are Specific (no waffle, they are clear) Measurable, Attainable (nothing like climb Everest or Swim with Dolphins, but they relate directly to day to day life) Relevant (they are necessary and won’t be out of date before they are achieved) and Timed (there is a start & end date, the end date can be adjusted, but only for a good reason & the goal is then adjusted to allow for this).

I had a think and these are my goals for this month:

Acquire more Avon customers

Decide on outfit for wedding I’m going to next month

Update my blog each day

Be less grumpy – take painkillers when needed for my backĀ  and look at supplements for my appalling PMS.

I will review these at the end of the month.
