You’ve heard of SMART goals:

  • Specific (Goals must be clear and unambiguous)
  • Measurable (Results must be able to be measured in some way, for example, the number of products sold each week, or the percent completion)
  • Attainable (Goals must be realistic and attainable by the average employee)
  • Relevant (Goals must relate to your organization’s vision and mission)
  • Time-bound (Goals must have definite starting and ending points, and a fixed duration)

….but are your goals CLEAR:

  • Collaborative (Goals should encourage employees to work together collaboratively and in teams)
  • Limited (Goals should be limited in both scope and duration)
  • Emotional (Goals should make an emotional connection to employees, tapping into their energy and passion)
  • Appreciable (Large goals should be broken down into smaller goals so they can be accomplished more quickly and easily for long-term gain)
  • Refinable (Set goals with a headstrong and steadfast objective, but as new situations or information arise, give yourself permission to refine and modify your goals)

As you work towards your CLEAR goals, look after yourself, look after others, and look after your equipment (body/health).
