SMART GoalsYour plan should be SIMPLE, MEASURABLE, ATTAINABLE, RELEVANT and TIMELY. “Have you put goals in place to achieve what you need to do? Am I making sense?” In this episode of The BOOM Podcast, Jeff talked about his friend, author and speaker Jake Ballentine, author of Your Number One Goal [Listen to their earlier conversation in Episode 4]. Ballentine had a goal to run a 5K in under 30 minutes – a SIMPLE and MEASURABLE goal. “He would run every single day and measured his success. He knew where he had to go,” Jeff said, adding that this goal was ATTAINABLE and RELEVANT. Ballentine’s “why” was stronger than his excuses, and this was also TIMELY – he had given himself a timeframe in which to accomplish this. Ballentine did it. What are your goals? What is your plan? “Put the goals in place to achieve the plan, whether it’s a three-month goal, a six-month goal, a one-year goal or a five-year goal. Have a goal in place to achieve that plan, which comes as a result of your dream.,” Yalden said. Remember: Life is not a race. Life is a journey – and we are all on our own paths. Remember: SMART Goals: “You take the dream out of your head. You put it down on paper. Now you have a plan. You re-engineer yourself as if you have already achieved it, and you work from that point backwards. You set a goal to achieve the plan. Is the goal SIMPLE? Is it MEASURABLE? Can you do it – is it ATTAINABLE? Do you feel in your heart that you can definitely do that? Is it RELEVANT? Is your ‘why’ greater than your excuses – and lastly, is it TIMELY?” Do you have a set time in which you can allocate every single day to focusing on your goal? If you haven’t done the last eleven days, go back and do it. “Get off your ass. I’m sorry if that offended you. Get off your ass and start making progress. Not perfection, but progress – and do it every single day.” Find out why Jeff Yalden is North America’s Number One Youth Motivational Speaker. Go HERE. Jeff’s speaking calendar fills up fast.
