"What Are SMART Goals?"

SMART goals are a way of creating meaningful goals. The concept was developed in 1981 by George T Doran to help managers set and reach their targets.

A goal is a desired result that you want to see some time in your future.

- Short-term goals are smaller, easier to accomplish and focus on things you would like to happen over the next year or two.

- Long-term goals focus more on the big picture and things you would like three, five or 10 years from now.

Goal-setting techniques and strategies have been a topic of interest for scientists and medical professionals for decades. The most famous of these people was Dr. Edwin Locke, who found that there is a direct connection between performance, positivity and having focused goals.
