If you’ve ever read anything related to achievement, motivation, or personal development, you’ve no doubt come across the idea of SMART Goals?
More often than not, the conversation revolves around setting SMART goals. This is an acronym for goals that are:
Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant Time-Bound Believe me, in all the time I worked in both Public Sector and PLC, they were ALWAYS going on about SMART goals, SMART targets. And KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) based around achieving them!
However, all that changed for me, when I first met someone who has subsequently gone on to become a very good and close friend of mine, International researcher, 3 x Amazon Best Selling Author, and motivational speaker Dave Hyner!
Like myself, Dave is also a motivational speaker, predominantly working with children and young adults to help them with self-belief. However, he hasn’t always worked in schools, and previous to this has traveled most of the Western world interviewing professionals from pretty much every different walk of life and profession “from pop stars to politicians” as he advises, on WHAT enabled them to achieve the exceptional success they have within their chosen profession.
In ALL the interviews (and we are talking several hundred people) not ONE of them either spoke of, or had even heard of SMART goals!
Wonder why that might be?
Take just 33mins to listen to this interview (conducted via ZOOM owing to COVID lockdown restrictions) as we discuss Why SMART simple isn’t!
