SMART is a marketing term that stands for:
I never think thoroughly about making goals every year. In fact, I make short-term goals as a form of motivation to get me "through" challenging times. On my last week's business club meeting, our chairman asked each one of us our goals for the spring semester/2012.
I thought of goals that require little effort, and would be achieved within a short time. What's one of them, you might ask? Here's a list I've come up with so far:
1. Drop some pounds, weigh less than last year
2. My list of drinks to conquer:
- Margaritas (CHECK!)
- White Russians
- Rum Punch
- Vodka Punch
- Coconut Rum & Pineapple Juice
3. Achieve an acne-less skin (a little difficult..)
4. Finish all my core courses this year
I have been a "workoholic" for a long time. I am a competitive/ambitious person. When I put my heart into something I have faith in, I won't give up until I've accomplished it. Which brings me a lot of stress and expectations for myself. Its time for change, rather than putting my health at risk.
So if I can't achieve them all, then I might GET A LIFE.
Goals are meant for motivation, and if it stops you from moving on then its not doing you any good.
