Remembering to use the S.M.A.R.T formula when setting goals makes a huge difference in actually achieving them. It’s easy to set a goal yet forget the importance of setting yourself up to achieve it. Clearly, I didn’t remember to set a deadline for my Paper Project.
S.M.A.R.T Goals are:
It’s time to wrap up the Paper Project, so it’s time to give myself a deadline of January 1 to have all of my “old” papers filed or shredded. My files for the new year are already set up.
December is a great time to go through old files, set up new ones, and start 2017 out right.
How great would it feel when tax-time comes to know everything is ready to go? Give yourself a S.M.A.R.T goal and set up your own “paper project” for success heading into 2017.
