I’m a big fan of setting big-ass goals. Dreaming BIG is my natural state – which is why S.M.A.R.T. goals are not all that smart.
S.M.A.R.T. stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound.
While it may seem like a good plan, I can’t wrap my head around NOT setting goals because they don’t seem achievable or realistic.
Since when did big-ass goals seem achievable and realistic? If that were true, you would already be doing them. Anytime you’re moving from dreaming into doing, you will be living in the land of crazy and scary.
If you hold yourself to what is achievable and realistic, you might as well keep doing what you’re doing. Being specific and measurable is all it takes.
