This is a great time of the year to discuss setting goals. But not just any goals. Let’s discuss setting goals to achieve success. Well, in order to stay inspired to do great things in life, you have to set goals to achieve success whether it is on a personal, academic, or career level. Then, you have to be disciplined enough to work hard and show your passion for whatever you set your heart out to do.


First, a SMART goal is a goal that is specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time based. In addition, SMART goals are very clear and easily understood.

• S – Specific (or Significant)

• M – Measurable (or Meaningful)

• A – Attainable (or Action-Oriented)

• R – Relevant (or Rewarding)

• T – Time-bound (or Trackable)

It is important to consider what you want to achieve in life, and then you must commit to it. Start with setting SMART goals that motivate you. Next, write your SMART goals down to make them feel tangible.


I’ve learned that people set goals for many reasons. For example, setting goals may give you long-term vision and short-term motivation. Also, the goal setting process helps you to organize your time and your resources so that you can make the most of your life. When you set clearly defined goals, you can measure and take pride in the achievement of those goals.

Here’s a few additional reasons why people set goals:

• To decide what you want to achieve in your life.

• To separate what’s important from what’s irrelevant or a distraction.

• To motivate and inspire yourself to be better each day.

• To build your self-confidence, based on successful achievement of goals.

Don’t wait until January 2020 to set goals. Start planning today for a better and stronger tomorrow. Don’t limit your challenges, challenge your limits. Don’t decrease the goal. Increase the effort. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s plan to set goals to achieve success!


• How often do you set goals for yourself?

• How do you determine if something is important enough to set a goal for it?

• What are your biggest personal milestones?

• How well are you currently balancing life?

• How confident do you feel about who you are?
