Something wonderful happens when you put pen to paper and write down your goals.  They become tangible.

The SMART goals approach will help you to develop a clear idea of what you want to achieve in 2017 and what your plan of action will be!


S  =  Specific

M = Measurable

M = Measurable

A = Attainable

R =  Relevant

T  = Timely


1- Specific – What is your goal?

2- Measurable – How will you know when it’s accomplished?

3- Attainable- Is your goal realistic and within reach?

4- Relevant – Why do you want to achieve this goal?

5- Timely- What is the time frame and plan?7 yr Lauren Kelly Balgowlah


Here’s an example from Georgia.

S = My goal for 2017 is to be able to do a great front kick.

M = I’m going to ask my teacher to let me know how I’m going with that.

A = I know this goal is attainable because I’m already flexible, I just need more control and accuracy with my kick.

R = This front kick is a regular part of my syllabus so it’s relevant for me.

T = I intend to practice for 3 minutes each day for 4 weeks, watching myself in the mirror to make sure my hips stay still and my supporting knee stays straight.

Turn your dreams into goals and then, into reality!
