So, you have your goal that is so far specific and measurable? Now, let's check and make sure it is Attainable, Realistic and Time-sensitive.
Let's use one example from the other day...
Specific- get better at double unders
Measurable- 50 unbroken
*My goal is to do 50 unbroken double unders.
A- Is this attainable and realistic? The answer would be yes if I already am capable of some good solid sets of double unders, like sets of 20 or 30 consistently. 50 just means more diligent practice.
This goal would NOT be attainable and realistic if I have not yet gotten my first double under or I can't yet string any together. 50 unbroken may be a lifetime goal, but not an appropriate or realistic one for the short term.
T-Is this time-sensitive? Let's make it. Let's say a short term goal would be something you could work to accomplish in 6-8 weeks. Keeping the time frame a little shorter (than a year or even 6 months) will help keep you focused and on-track.
Your job on Thursday is to look at your specific and measurable goal and edit or adjust it so that it meets the requirements of attainable, realistic and time-sensitive. This way it'll be ready for the whiteboard on Friday!
