Topic of the Month: SOAR SMART when you're thinking about goals

Mar 02, 2020 02:15PM ● By Editor

To reach your goals,

You know that thing in your life that you wish were different?  That place that you'd love to make some changes - if you only could figure out where to start?  Well, here you go - Steps 1 and 2 on the route to reaching your goal!

These two words can help you find ways to move from simply having a wish to developing a plan to make that wish a reality.

1.  SOAR  is a planning tool that helps you clarify your Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, and Results.  Once you know where you're starting from, you can use that information to get where you want to go! 

2.  SMART  reminds us to make our goals Specific, Measurable, Appropriate, Realistic, and Time-bound.  These parameters can help keep you on track as you move forward.

March's Topic of the Month will walk you through the SOAR SMART process and plan for challenges that you might encounter.
