No, I don't. I'm not much into making new year resolutions because the calendar has turned a page. I make "resolutions" throughout the year to improve as I see fit. Happy New Year to you both!

Smart goals aka SMART:

Specific

Measurable

Achievable

Realistic and/or Relevant

Time-based goals (aka timely or time bound)

Can be a very handy tool.

I haven’t set any (yet) for 2020. (Sure seems weird to type 2020).

I know what the SMART acronym stands for in goal setting. My current goals are not number oriented but, rather, being more efficient with my time to enjoy life and have a greater impact with my activities.

I have an income goal and a number of transactions goal each year.  The income goal is not one I share with my SOI.  The number of transactions is easy to get behind and get your SOI rooting for you on social media.  Make sure to share it with them and count down your sales to your goal.

I have read a few answers here that contains their opinion of a SMART goal. I tend go agree with both. At the end, it will all work out. I'm like the Energizer Bunny, just keeps going and going. This year I will take the SMART approach.
