One quit thing that I would like to post separately is Goal setting methodology called – SMART. This methodology is easy to remember. What kind of goals you have to raise? Yes, smart goals, not dumb ones like play video games without going to the toilet for 48h 🙂
SMART criteria are commonly associated with Peter Drucker’s management by objectives concept. The first-known use of the term occurs in the November 1981 issue of Management Review by George T. Doran. The principal advantage of SMART objectives is that they are easier to understand and to know when they have been done.
S.M.A.R.T is translates to:
- Specific – target a specific area for improvement.
- Measurable – quantify or at least suggest an indicator of progress.
- Agreed upon – specify who will do it.
- Realistic – state what results can realistically be achieved, given available resources.
- Time-related – specify when the result(s) can be achieved.
This is also one of the most common ways for successful Project management. I bet that all managers know this methodology, so you as a successful person should know as well. What separates successful and happy people from the opposite? They know and have their life goals and reach for them. When you ask unhappy people so what is that they want to be happy most will actually answer “I don’t know”. If they know for example more money, when you ask then so what did they did to achieve it, the most common honest answer would be “nothing”. If your ultimate goal in life is money then you much to everything to have more of them. Search for job that pays more then the present one every day, trade stocks, marry a old rich (wo)man if that is a such important thing in life to you 🙂 Simple right? Just know what you want and reach for it. That’s all it takes to be happy and successful person! 🙂
