How to be SMART About Your Goals

How to be SMART About Your Goals

Goals are necessary for achievement.

Yes, some folks can achieve great success without ever having set a goal, but they are few and far between. The idea of an overnight success grips us all at some point, but most of us get over it because we learn early on that nothing is truly an overnight success.

Today, we’ll talk a bit about SMART goals. And, I don’t just mean how to be smart about setting goals. Instead, I want you to learn how to understand SMART intentions and get them to work for you.

Confession time

My life is out of balance. My work is out of balance. I am working weekends. I am working past 5 pm — this may not seem a huge deal, but I wake up at 5 am and start working by 6:15 am. I am wiped out by 5 pm. It’s all I can do to form a coherent sentence, let alone write a creative blog post or design a web page or a productivity course.

But there’s more. Much more.

If you take nothing else from that blurb, take the words “profound” and “heart-centered” because that’s exactly what you find in this book.

It’s a book of stories. A book of emotions. A book of successes that were hard-won. It’s about women everywhere. I think, perhaps, it’s about me. And about you.

A Smart Conversation with Chloe DiVita

 A Smart Conversation with Chloe DiVita

Women are so smart.

I have always believed in the smartness of women everywhere. In my previous life, back in the early 2000s, I wrote a blog called Lipsticking, for and about women entrepreneurs.

It came from a book I wrote - subtitled, Smart Marketing to Women Online. After a year of blog posting, the blog became Smart Marketing for Women Online. You see the difference?

So many smart women recognized their lack of education and training online, and I filled in the gap for them. It brought me much satisfaction and delight. The blog still exists. You can visit it, if you like.

Now, however, I am focused on today’s woman. I am focused on the smart, talented women of 2019 - and beyond.
