Have you ever been asked, whats your major goal in life? What was your response? 

If you ask most people what is their one major objective in life, they would probably give you a vague answer, such as, "I want to be successful, be happy, make a good living," and that is it. These are all wishes and none of them are clear and well defined goals.

Smart goal

Goals must be SMART:

1. S--           Specific. 
For example, "I want to lose weight." This is wishful thinking. It becomes a goal when you pin yourself down to "I will lose 10 pounds in 90 days."

2. M--   Measurable. 
Your goals must be measurable, if we cannot measure it, we cannot accomplish it. Measurement is a way of monitoring our progress.

3. A--  Achievable. 
Setting possible goals is essential
Your goals must be achievable, this means that it may be out of reach enough to be challenging but it must not be out of sight, otherwise it becomes disheartening. You must have a achievable plan.

4. R--   Realistic. 
A person who wants to lose 50 pounds in~30 days is being unrealistic. Fix a realistic target and then make a plan to attain it.

5. T--   Time-bound. 
There should be a starting date and a finishing date. It helps if you can write this down and make a table for implementation.
