How to Set Personal SMART Goals To Succeed

You might have already heard about personal SMART goals. This mnemonic acronym stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-sensitive (with some variations being used), and is considered to be based on Peter Drucker’s management by objectives. Drucker defended that a company can only achieve its goals if their objectives are clear and possible to be monitored. Despite the fact that this method has been first published in 1981 by George T. Doran, many companies have yet to come to understand how to put it into practice. But it isn’t only companies which can improve themselves with it.

Why The Best Leaders Stay On Top: The Secret Behind Their Decision-Making Strategies

People are both lazy and afraid to change, not wanting to adapt unless they see a massive benefit in doing so. They’re afraid to adapt to new technologies or change their lives because what they’re doing in the present is “working”. Businesses will deny upcoming trends and rationalize their decisions by comparing profits against the upward trending competitor’s—taking solace in the fact that they are currently on top. Examples of businesses failing to adapt can be seen in Netflix taking down Blockbuster, Amazon taking down Borders, and smartphone cameras taking down Kodak.
