Good goals are:
Realistic (NO pie-in-the-sky here)! and Include:
- Rest (vacation or leisure)
Beneficial: What is the benefit in each area listed above?
Well defined: Use specific rather than general descriptions
List any obstacles and how to advance through them – minor goals along the way
Have a reasonable time frame: Depends on area and specific goal. Some goals are short and there is nothing more to do. Others longer and may need modification as time goes on.
- Short term – <yr.
- Moderate term >yr. <yrs.
- Long term >yrs.
