  • Hey kings and queens, I'm sure most of you have dreams

  • But in order to make them come true dreaming is usually not enough.

  • There is a great method called smart which helps you set goals wiser and transform your dreams into concrete goals instead of being far away.

  • Your dreams become achievable.

  • Smart Criteria means specific measurable attainable relevant and time-bound.

  • Specific. You should know exactly what you want not kind of not almost but exactly

  • The goals are much harder to achieve

  • so you need to define them as clearly as you can.

  • This way you will know what you need to do in order to get what you want.

  • But if your goal is vague, you will be confused. I want to be rich that's not well defined.

  • Instead say I want to earn a thousand dollars per month with my online business

  • and own a house which I will rent$4,000 a month

  • You can be even more specific than that and write down more details

  • Measurable. How would you know if you achieve your goal? Think of ways to measure your progress

  • Break your larger goals in the smaller one, so you can know whenever you accomplish something.

  • I want to be a singer That's not measurable.

  • What a sign is a singer? Who decides would make someone a singer and how can you know if you become one?

  • Some ways to measure your progress towards this dream can be writing a song releasing an album

  • performing in front of an audience or getting paid to perform.

  • One side note the fact that you make music and do what you love is already a huge success

  • Attainable. I've got to say something about this one.

  • I'm in favor of dream being an aiming high my dreams are far beyond the sky.

  • After all, everything is impossible before it happens.

  • People used to think that everything that can be invented has been invented.

  • But new things are still being invented day after day

  • And yet, you need to feel the progress you need to see that you accomplish things along the way.

  • Your dreams can be as crazy as you want, but sets up goals that will push you to keep going.

  • Focus more on watching your control and less on the final result.

  • For example, instead of I want there to be no more poverty in the world,

  • focus on people you want to help to, events you want to organize,

  • donation you can collect, a charity organization you can establish and so on.

  • Relevant.

  • Why do you do what you do? Does it help you move towards you go?

  • Make sure that the actions you take relevant.

  • I want 150 thousand dollars a year. Ok, but for what? So I can have a financial freedom.

  • So I can save up enough money for retirement.

  • So I can donate and help people.

  • Know the answer for why you want what you want, and think of the steps you take are relevant and really push you forward.

  • Time-bound. If you don't set deadlines you have unlimited time to achieve your goals and you lose focus

  • Once you set a schedule or a deadline you become committed.

  • That's why many people become super productive or finish their tasks at the last minute.

  • I want to have 10,000 subscribers. Ok I can have them 20 years from now.

  • So one of my goals is I want to have 10,000 subscribers before November.

  • Now that I have a deadline. I can see what actions I can take in order to achieve that.

  • Upload more frequently.

  • Collaborate with other YouTubers, advertise my channel and many other options

  • So like I said before don't use it the wrong way of dreaming small or only desires things that seem achievable.

  • On the contrary, think outside of the box and don't be afraid to dream big.

  • The Smart Criteria is a great tool that can help you focus and be practical.
