Numerous individuals exhaust their lives by shifting from one work place to another in search of a decent job or going here and there trying to achieve more but fail miserably. So, let us try to understand ‘what are smart goals?’ S.M.A.R.T goal settings signify that you can have clarity in thoughts and utilize your time or resources effectively and in a productive manner.
To ensure that your goals are not vague, each one of us should be:
• Specific (simple, sensible, significant)
• Measurable (meaningful, motivating)
• Achievable (agreed, attainable)
• Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based)
• Time bound (time-based, time limited, time/cost limited, timely, time-sensitive)

Now, How Do We Make The Usage Of SMART?
For example: You would like to measure your goals of gaining skills to be a senior editor by asserting that you have finished required training subjects and acquired the experience required in two year’s span.
For example: There will be a dire need to ask yourself whether imbibing the skills you require to become a senior editor is realistic or not depending on your present experience or qualifications. Example: Do you hold relevant time to finish the training required efficiently?
For example: You wish to accomplish skills of a senior editor of your firm, but you need to define whether it is the right time to take up the relevant training or strive hard for additional qualifications? And are you certain that you are the sound person for the position? Did you consider your husband/wife’s role?
E. Time Bound
For Example: Acquiring skills of a senior editor may take up some time. How much time does it require? Do you need further training, so that you're eligible for certain exams or qualifications?
