SMART Goals are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-based goals that help you structure your efforts to achieve your desired outcome.
Specific: A goal must be specific and clear so that it can be easily understood. It should answer who, what, why, where, and how.
Measurable: A goal should be measurable so that you can track your progress. This could mean setting a number, like 3 hours per week, or keeping track of how many tasks you complete each day.
