Create Your SMART Goals

STEP 1: Write a specific goal statement.

The first step in creating a SMART goal is to write a clear and specific statement of what you want. This statement doesn’t have to be long — a sentence or two will do. Just make sure your statement leaves no doubt about what you want and when you want it. Show me.

Write your specific goal statement here:

What do you want to accomplish? (Use an action-oriented verb like graduate, complete, pay off, earn, own, specialize that clearly defines what you want.)


SMART check: Answer each question "Yes" or "No"



1. Does someone else need to do something or provide something before you can accomplish this goal?
2. Is this goal statement as detailed as you can make it?
