About Lesson

I have a coaching advantage, having worked for years with teachers to help them construct goals. We follow a reliable formula – the acronym SMART.

So how do we use SMART?

Let’s start with a generic goal that we can turn SMART.

‘I want to lose a lot of weight!’

That sounds noble! That’s always one of my goals! But it’s not SMART. Follow the course to see how to make it SMART!

Enjoy your learning!

The easiest example is probably ‘I want to lose a lot of weight!’ OK, well, we have something general here – weight-loss – as a goal. That’s not bad, but the phrase ‘a lot of weight’ isn’t anything specific. ‘Five kilograms’ … ‘20 pounds’ … ‘half a stone’ (Ok, i have no idea what half a stone is, but I DO know it’s a measure of weight – I just hope it doesn’t mean something like 150 kilograms or more) … all of these are pretty specific. So, when you think of your ultimate achievement, keep it simple, but keep it specific, too!

By the way, there are a lot of physical resources out there that you can use to help you stay on track. Here’s a couple below.
