There are many goal setting strategy and one of the common ones is the SMART which stand for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely. Today I am going to share with you is the SMSPDA which I learnt from Patterns of Excellence program by AKLTG which have an extra element is very important, the Purpose or I called it the “WHY”. Why the “WHY” is so important? You can read my previous blog post Find Your Why.
Specific: Spell out your goal in more specific
Measurable: How to you know you have achieve it? We need something that is measurable. Example: Weight to be 79kg.
Stretch: We set our goal based on our current capabilities, when we push it further and we will think of a way.
Purpose: The why you want to achieve the goal
Dateline: When you need to achieve the goal
Action Plan: How to do it, what is your strategies and the action plans. Successful people take MASSIVE ACTIONS.
I have prepared a free Goal Setting Framework in google doc format with sample reference for your usage. You can fill it up, print it in A4 and stick to your wall.
