Goals are an essential part towards creating a meaningful and intrinsically-rewarding life. Goals motivate us to work hard and to be our best and happiest selves. Every day we make goals, from having a goal to make an omelette for breakfast, to having a goal to attend a club’s social event you want to be at, and working hard to achieve even larger and longer goals of a dream career or particular living condition. For these large goals especially, forming them to be a SMART(ER) goal can create clarity in your end-objective and the process to get there, recenter you towards achieving your goal, and determine how to effectively allocate your resources to achieve the goal.
