SMART philosophy "projects fail, it is because goals were not specific or measurable.
First, we ask, "Is this goal specific"? A specific SMART goal is one goal:
A specific SMART goal answers 'who', 'what', and 'where':
A specific SMART goal has no ambiguous words:
Next we ask, "Is this goal measurable"? A measurable SMART goal tells us when we're done: Well, it says, 'all', but I'm not sure how many that is. FAIL
A measurable SMART goal includes 'from' and 'to' (when possible):
A measurable SMART goal has a measurement system in place:
Now we ask, "Is this goal aggressively achievable"? An aggressively attainable goal is not impossible: The original goal (Rev 0) used the word 'all', as in "Evangelize and Disciple all enlisted members". Don't do that. It's baaaad. FAIL
An aggressively attainable goal is not too easy:
An aggressively attainable goal should not be susceptible to a baseline shift:
An aggressively attainable goal should account for prerequisites:
Next we ask, "Is this goal relevant"? A relevant SMART goal has a 'why' that matters:
A relevant SMART goal satisfies the 'why':
A relevant SMART goal has minimal counterproductive impact:
A relevant SMART goal isn't a 'goal to set goals':

A time-bound SMART goal includes the month:
A time-bound SMART goal includes the date: I'll review this on Friday.
