Setting Goals the SMART Way

Setting Goals the SMART Way

From the moment someone joins Team Universal Events, he or she learns about the importance of establishing goals. In our fast-paced office, we need to have our eyes on the ball, and the best way to do this is to be mindful of our objectives at all times. So that we increase our chances for success, we make sure our goals are SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time Sensitive.

“I sincerely believe that when we establish goals for ourselves, we have something we can strive to accomplish,” Harmony, Universal Events’ CEO stated. “The most effective strategy is to be SMART about it.”

Specific goals are those in which we’ve defined the end results clearly and have a way in which we can measure our progress. “We’re much more likely to increase results when there’s a target versus a broad vision,” Harmony explained. “When we know precisely what number we need to hit and we can track our progress, it boosts our likelihood of succeeding.”

“Goals should also be attainable,” Harmony noted. “We want to set reasonable expectations, while still challenging ourselves. We also want them to be relevant to our larger plans as well. Finally, we set deadlines to ensure we stay on course.”

By managing our objectives in a SMART manner, we position ourselves for professional and personal growth. Discover more about our goal-setting approach by liking Universal Events on Facebook.
