Egolfplan will have you write down both long-term and short-term goals. Thinking about where you want to go is not enough…you must write them down and constantly look at them. It is not a coincidence that some of the most successful people in the world were goal setters (Jack Nicklaus, Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, Jim Carey). This is actually a fun step as “sky’s the limit” with this step. Creating your vision should not be inhibited. How are we going to create a plan if we do not know our final destination? However, we do recommend that all goals are written using the SMART Methodology.
SPECIFIC – What exactly am I going to do?
The program states a specific outcome, or a precise objective to be accomplished. The outcome is stated in numbers, percentages, frequency, reach, etc. The objective is clearly defined.
MEASURABLE – Is it measurable and can I measure it? This means that the objective can be measured and the measurement source is identified. All activities should be measurable at some level.
ACHIEVABLE – Can I get it done?
The objective or expectation of what will be accomplished must be realistic given the time period, resources allocated, etc.
RELEVANT – Will this objective lead to my desired result? This means that the outcome of the task directly supports the outcome of my overall long-range plan or goals.
TIME-FRAMED – When will I accomplish this objective? This means stating clearly when the objective will be achieved.
