Systems and SMART Goals

SMART goals and productivity systems both have a role in helping us achieve progress.

SMART goals are great for shorter term, reach it and be done situations.

What does SMART stand for?

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Time Bound

Systems are better for ongoing or long term activities. A system is something you do on a regular basis with the expectation that doing so will get you to a better place in your work or personal life.

In some cases, systems can help us reach our SMART goals too!
