How to Get Paid Like a Top Performer Part 3 – SMARTY GOALS

Week 3 – SMARTY Goals

Welcome back!

You’ve listed your accomplishments.

You know where you were three years ago, where you are today, and where you want to be a year from now.

Now let’s focus on your career.

Look back at last week’s One Year From Now chart.

What’s your vision for your career?

Now, what the first goal in making that happen?

Let’s chunk it down:

~ SETTING A SPECIFIC STRATEGY ~

Start with the basics and make S.M.A.R.T.Y. Goals

A successful goal must be Specific, Measurable, have Attainable action steps, be Relevant and realistic, have a Time-bound component, and offer a compelling reason why it’s important for You to achieve this goal.

Prepare to achieve your goal by defining your goal using the SMARTY Goal formula.

Specific ~ Specifically state your goal.

Measure ~ Write down how will you measure or track your success.

Action Step ~ What attainable action steps can you take toward achieving your goal?

Realistic ~ Is your goal realistic?

Time-Bound ~ By when will you achieve this goal? Give it a specific date.

Your ~ Purpose. A step designed for cross-checking the formula to ensure it’s a properly set goal. Ask yourself “Does someone else have to change in order for me to achieve this goal?” Is it a You goal? Y for “Why” is it important for you to achieve this goal? What is the relevance?
