We have heard or been informed by others that — We should have Goals, set the Goal, follow your Goals etc...
But, do you know, How to set up a Goal Effectively?
Here is the Technique I have learned from multiple Books which personally applied, improvised and concluded :
1) Specific : Define details such as why only this goal, what to be achieved & how?
2) Measurable : How will you measure the progress?
3) Achievable: Make the realistic Goals.
4) Relevant: The Goal must mean Something to You. Think on it
5) Time-bound: It should have a Deadline.
Ex: Let’s say, I have a Goal to Crack the Interview in MNCs, so SMART will be-
- Specific : I want to crack the Interview of Google/ Amazon.
That’s why preparing for Coding Test which includes Algorithms and Data Structures.
I will prepare from any GeeksForGeeks / Training website and achieve preparation by 4 Months by dividing the list into 2–2 Weeks of time frames.
- Measurable : At Every 2 Weeks I will measure the progress against the Total Topics vs Geeks For Geeks training articles.
- Achievable : Preparation of all the topics in a Month is not realistic. So, I have chosen 4 Months & Divide them comfortably in achievable 2 Weeks of Period.
- Relevant : I am Software engineer and it has lot of relevance to my career growth & area of interest.
- Time-bound : Deadline is of 4 Months with 2–2 weeks checkpoints, which will help myself to be time-bounded.
