Knowing What is Achievable Before You Try: The "A" in SMART
One of the hardest things about setting a great goal is setting the right level of difficulty. You want to push yourself and your teams, but not too hard; you want to stretch yourselves, but not to the breaking point. So you want your goal to be challenging, but ACHIEVABLE--the "A" in SMART.
A SMART goal is "RELEVANT", meaning that it has a clear and coherent connection to success, whether it's for an individual, a team, or the organization. Sometimes, though, you need to craft a story to help people understand the relevance of a goal.
