Creating S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Specific
Measurable
Attainable
Realistic
Timely

Specific - A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal you must answer the six "W" questions:
*Who: Who is involved?
*What: What do I want to accomplish?
*Where: Identify a location.
*When: Establish a time frame.
*Which: Identify requirements and constraints.
*Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.

EXAMPLE: A general goal would be, "Get in shape." But a specific goal would say, "Join a health club and workout 3 days a week."


Measurable - Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set. When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to continued effort required to reach your goal.
To determine if your goal …

Friend

I was going through my book of greeting cards and I found a letter that reminded me of a friend that I think I have lost. We had been really good friends for 4 years, running on 5th. Before I was so close to him, and now I am miles away from him, physically and mentally.
Going through my book, I found a letter he wrote me the night before I was moving to Seattle:

Honey

The second semester of biology was in gear and I just wanting to be a little closer to the teacher and made the miraculous decision to sit by a very cute Indian girl that I knew little about.
Graduation day we took a picture together.
First day of college each mundane class became a bubble of mundane classes and I got a message from this girl honey saying we are in the same class together.

The picture in my head of all time we have spent together is as vivid as watching a movie; I have a powerful gift that I can remember the place and tell and the items of little things. But that isn't the gift the gift …

Twists and Turns

For one, I am alive! Life has been a roller coaster, like always busy with school, work, enjoying, hobbies, and just doing my thing. 

I turn 21 in exactly a month: March 17th. I don’t drink, so it’s not that big of deal, but I can go dancing/clubbing, so very excited about that. Completion of 2 decades!  

My health is outstanding! I am much better than I was 2 months ago. My stomach only hurts sometimes, and I am able to focus and take care of myself, and eat really well. My knee thing started again, but it’s fine, it’s no pain compared to the stomach dilemma.
I got a butterfly tattoo February 11, 2010 on the back of shoulder: blue and turquoise butterfly. 

Work is the usual, I really like working with PR. 

School is great. Management class is easy, Accounting is ok to deal with and I love International Business class, I am learning so much that I love. 

I saw 3 Idiots and My Name is Khan. 

I made a really good friend: First. 

I am much closer to Marshmallow Accountant (King Sniffles).
