S.M.A.R.T. Goals Explained

Successful people create S.M.A.R.T. goals and people are successful because they create S.M.A.R.T. goals.  A true full circle – below is an outline of how you can apply S.M.A.R.T. goals to your process so you could enhance your success in a shorter amount of time and join the ranks of the Elite.

It all begins with an end goal in mind – A true desire – A need that you want to fill.  S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym for creating a process to reach the end result with success.  Stress is produced when order turns into havoc and having a S.M.A.R.T. blueprint allows the goal to take on its own form of auto-pilot thus reducing associated stress.

S.M.A.R.T. goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.

Specific – I want to make a lot of money vs. I want to make 250k within the next 8 months.  A specific measuring point provides you a metric for success or failure and provides a solid mental structure that creates motivation and purpose.

Measurable – Daily, Weekly, Monthly metrics are important when measuring your progress to meet the end goal.  Developing a specific amount of time per day dedicated to making a specific amount of money will allow you to measure the difference between existing and needed amounts to reach the end goal.  These measurable structures allow you to create an automated trajectory to meet your end goal.  This will allow you to adjust your metrics along the journey in order to reach the desired target or to reduce the end goal to a more realistic outcome. “Things that get measured get done” – Peter Drucker

Attainable – Or in other words realistic – You will not go from earning no money to earning 10 billion every 6 months.  Although we would like to make drastic leaps in earning potential, this is not realistic.  Develop a realistic goal that can be achieved.  Coaches note: Don’t sell yourself short either – You can achieve great things with great effort – All things are possible if you believe in yourself, find the correct operations, and work hard and diligently to achieve your desired results.

Relevant – How does this goal apply to your life? Are you motivated to meet this goal? Do you own the goal? The importance of the goal in relation to your life satisfaction is optimal for applying yourself to completing your efforts. If there is no substantial benefit or improvement then why are you doing it anyway? Choose your goals strategically and make certain that you want to achieve the desired results and gain a full understanding on the rewards you will receive on your journey.

Timely – Start the countdown – Without a time limit, the goal accomplishment could go on indefinitely.  Without a future goal post to signal the end will inhibit your success by allowing daily distractions to interfere with your required efforts. Success is defined as meeting goals. Set a feasible target date to enhance commitment and focus and this is the final step in being S.M.A.R.T.

The Evil Motivation of Money

Is money Evil? This is open to opinion and speculation.

Money provides us with wealth in the form of meeting needs.

Money provides the ability to buy products and services that are needed for survival and a better quality of life.

Everyone wants and needs money for our health, happiness, success, and survival.

Everyone strives in life to make money to fulfill needs.

In this regard, money is a GOD send – Using Money is easier than bartering goods.

—————————————————————————————————————————————-

Then there is the other side of the equation – How much money is enough?

This is a tricky question because the answer is variable depending on the person and their environment.

A positive Psychology study showed that happiness is maximized with an income of 70k per year and any additional earnings does not provide increased happiness.

If this is true: Why do most of us want to make more than 70k per year?

There are many reasons – Here is a simple one:

We want to buy things that we don’t have and we want our immediate family and friends to share in the excitement.

i.e. 10 people in the immediate family = Need 700k

Here in lies the problem with money – GREED

Making money is wonderful and everyone should have the opportunity to grow their wealth to meet their needs and dreams.

Money provides many wonderful benefits such as traveling the world and sending your kids to college.

The GREED part of money is the scary part and is what causes FEAR in our economy.

We need an economy that will only accept honesty, trust, and fairness.

What are people willing to do to gain more money?

On one side – People are willing to get a great education, work hard, develop innovative products, and serve our communities for the greater good.

On the other side – People are willing to:

  • Break any and all ethical values
  • Deceive potential customers
  • Create scams to steal from the innocent
  • Murder and victimize family and non-family members
  • Create complex money schemes to bait people into giving away their money
  • Pretend to love GOD
  • Become politicians to steal from the public in the guise of favors
  • Form organized crime units
  • Steal from crime scenes
  • Write unnecessary prescriptions for their gain instead of their patients
  • Perform unnecessary surgery and put helpless lives in jeopardy
  • Sell mortgages that are based on shark loans that could never be paid

and this list goes on and on.

These people come from many different backgrounds and walks of life – They have different influences on them as they grow up, come from different socio-economic levels, have different values and education levels, but they all fit succinctly into one category – Evil.

  • It is Evil to harm others for GREEDY selfish personal gain
  • It is Evil to justify harming other people for increased financial gain
  • It is Evil to break ethics as a practicing professional to make more money
  • It is Evil to abuse an authority position to steal for personal gain

Money is not Evil – People are willing to do Evil things to get more money.

This motivation for more money propels people to do Evil thing and causes instability in our economy.  The culture of money needs a makeover – The Evil acts of GREED compromise safety.

Why are you hesitant about any offer? Is it because you are on guard from being scammed?

Why do we mistrust people we never met before?

Why are we worried that someone might hurt someone we love?
