Set Your SMART Goals In 2021

Posted by Alison Heller-Ono on January 12, 2021

SMART goals

Are You a Goal Setter? 

Goals are meaningless without a plan that sets out how you will achieve them. If you want to achieve a certain goal, then you must build a path toward that goal. Goal-setting helps to prioritize your workload, build good habits so you can make every day count. 

Backed by science and success psychology, writing your goals down helps to optimize your day and tackle them so that you can live a more fulfilled life. 

The Self-Journal© recommends setting time-specific goals and breaking them in to a 13-week period, as this is the equivalent of 4 goal-setting periods per year. 

Be SMART when setting your Goals

The method is based on the following acronym, SMART:

S= Specific
M=Measurable
A=Attainable and Achievable
R=Relevant and Realistic
T=Time-Based

We encourage students who enroll in our professional certificate courses to create SMART goals to improve their chances of a successful course completion. 

Transform Yourself through Goal-Setting

We find when students set goals, use a calendar to stay on track, follow our course tracker, while performing weekly reflections, and meet with me every few weeks, they are most likely to finish our professional courses to achieve true transformation.

If you are interested in transforming your career with ergonomics in 2021, we currently offer three (online, self-paced, on-demand) professional courses and several mini-courses.

Our professional course offerings include: 

  • Our Chair Assessment Specialist (CASp) course focuses on the science of sitting, chair assessment, selection, and fit and includes our novel chair asset management system.
