The Scarier Your Goal the Better!

You may have heard of setting SMART goals before. SMART stands for

Specific

Measurable,

Achievable,

Realistic, and

Time limited.

Setting a goal such as, “I want to lose 2 pounds a week,” is a SMART goal. “I will weigh (fill in the blank) by December 31, 2011,” is another SMART goal. ┬áThat’s not what I’m talking about here.

I’m suggesting that you set goals that come from your heart. So much so that they inspire you. So inspired that it’s something that you not just want to do, it’s something you have to achieve it.

Finally, it’s something that gives you chills, literally makes you a bit afraid. If the goal you set is something that gives you an adrenaline rush, it’s worthy of you. What you fear the most, is what you want the most.

I’ll talk more about this in my post on January 2.
