SMART Goals Will Help You Achieve Anything
“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” — Confucius Source Most of us don’t have the slightest clue about how to set goals in a way that will empower and embolden us rather than deter and limit us. We usually have some outlandish abstracts in our mind of what we want to achieve, but we never actually fulfill those fantasies. However, when you set goals the SMART way, you’re far more likely to follow through. If you’ve never heard of SMART goals, then this primer should get you up and running quickly. The SMART method allows you to set your goals so that you don’t feel frustrated or end up giving up on your dreams. When you follow along with this method you’ll get clarity of purpose by defining the goals the right way and ensuring that they’re harmonious with what you want out of life deep down inside. When you set goals this way, you often end up seeing them through. It doesn’t mean that your goals are guaranteed to materialize. Much of your ability to achieve a goal has to do with the small and incremental steps that you take each and every day to make those dreams into a reality. When you stop taking action, and you procrastinate or engage in time-wasters, no goal setting method can help you. What Do SMART Goals Stand For? (S) — Specific The first step in setting a SMART goal is to get specific about it. You need to be precise about what the goal is. It can’t be left in the abstract and it must be written down. Exactly what do you plan to achieve? You can’t just come up with a notion of what that idea is. You have to be able to track it and give it a metric. A specific goal doesn’t just state that you want to be rich or be a millionaire or lose weight. The goal has to define the exact amount of money you plan to have or the exact amount of weight you intend to lose. Is it a million dollars? 10 million dollars? More? Do you plan to lose 20 pounds? 30 pounds? Or more maybe? Specific goals are far more likely to be achieved. And when they’re written down, you’re more likely to follow through with those goals. It’s as if you’re bringing them out from the abstract and into the real world. As soon as you write them down, they’re real. Define them with a great deal of precision and detail. (M) — Meaningful Most people think that the letter “M” in SMART stands for measurable. Not true. The “M” stands for meaningful. If a goal isn’t meaningful, it can’t be accomplished. The trackable metric is defined in the first step where you get specific about the goal, but you also have to have a powerful and strong enough reason to achieve it. Reasons come first. Answers come second. If you’ve ever wanted something badly enough in your life before, then you know just how it feels to overcome limitations by creating meaningful goals. Behind the specifics of your goal, you have to have a strong enough meaning. Keep asking yourself why you want something, then try to figure out why you want the answer to that until the question equals the answer. (A) — Achievable Set goals that you can achieve. I’m all for creating lofty goals, but you have to build momentum from small wins. This doesn’t mean that you can’t set outlandish goals that are further out. You most certainly should do that. When you do that, you’ll constantly look for ways to achieve those goals as long as you create milestones on the way there. Just make sure that your shorter-term goals are achievable. Set your sites on creating multiple goals. Focus on a very achievable 12-month goal, which you can build momentum from. Then create your 2, 3, 5 and 10-year goals. This outline for your life will help give you direction so that you know where you’re heading. It provides clarity of purpose and calculated actions to achieve the end results. It’s a powerful tool that resides in both your conscious and subconscious minds when you know what you’re after in the long term. (R) — Relevant Your SMART goals need to be relevant to your life. The goals also have to be harmonious to your values and beliefs. The thing that often trips up most people is that they choose goals that run contrary to their beliefs. Sometimes, those goals even contradict their core values. When that happens, you’ll find yourself giving up. Why? Because the goal went against the proverbial grain. You can’t set goals that are not harmonious with the internal workings of your mind. Once the going gets tough, it will be more likely that you’ll quit if you decide to do this. (T) — Time-Based SMART goals are based in time. They have an exact date that’s selected when those goals are meant to be achieved. If you don’t select that date, then you’re violating one of the primary objectives of goal setting. When you select a date on a calendar, as opposed to saying next year or next summer or a couple of years from now, you’re more likely to follow through. Another thing about time-based goals is that you can easily create milestones on your way towards that goal. You can break it down into monthly, weekly and even daily goals. It’s much easier to focus on what you need to do today to achieve a goal, rather than focusing on the enormity of something that’s one year out. Take the time to select a specific date on the calendar for your goals. Then, put that goal with the date at the top in bold, right in front of you on paper on your wall or in your office. This way, it’s always on your mind and you can refer back to it often. You can also set it as the background screen for your phone and computer.
Eight Ideas to Reduce Employee Stress for Free
Keeping employee stress levels low is a common interest among business owners and managers. The less overwhelmed by stress employees are, the more productive they can be. Unfortunately, there’s not usually a big budget set aside for office stress relief. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we go over 8 ideas for free office stress relief. Offices aren’t the most relaxing places. Far from it. That is, unless you find countless meetings and deadlines relaxing. It’s not just offices themselves. Work’s just stressful. Always has been, and probably always will be. Try as we might, the more we invest money in open layouts, feng shui, or rewards, the office remains a source of stress for most employees. But even though we’ll never be able to pull stress out by the roots and eradicate it completely between the hours of 9-5, we can do something about it, lessen the effects, and here’s the best part: it doesn’t have to cost you a lot. Here a few free (or mostly free) ideas that can help your employees stop biting their nails and enjoy their work (we hope). Source: IncorporateMassage.com 1. Start A Walking Movement One of the leading causes of stress in the office—believe it or not—is the lack of mobility we experience during the workday. Sitting doesn’t seem that stressful, but it really is. And after sitting for 8 hours a day, people are usually pretty stressed out. A simple, cost-effective remedy is to walk more. Walking reduces stress, recalibrates us, and feels good. Problem is, when workers are left to their own devices, they aren’t going to get up and walk as much as they should unless they are the small percentage of extremely motivated people who cold press their own juice every day. For the rest of us, structuring a reward or incentive for the most stairs, miles, or minutes walked during the day is extremely helpful. Encourage people to put walking on their calendars—at least 10 minutes for every hour they end up sitting. The result is a less stressed office. 2. Encourage Daydreaming at Work In the professional world, having one’s head in the clouds has always been seen as a bad thing. “Get back to work” is what the top brass usually thinks when it comes to daydreaming. But structured daydreaming actually makes people more productive and less stressed. Google took on a form of this with their 20% rule, but you don’t have to do anything like that. Reminding (and encouraging) your employees to take a few minutes every hour to let their minds wander could pay huge, stress-relieving benefits. 3. The Office Pet Furry (or sometimes non-furry) friends are an amazing way to relieve stress inside an office. WebMD shows an interesting connection between playing with a pet and reduced stress hormones. Whether you buy, adopt, or just have your workers take turns bringing in their own pets, taking a few minutes a day to rub a dog behind the ears can do emotional wonders for us. 4. Fun and Active Stress Reducers at Work Work and play are always presented as a dichotomy. Apparently the two can’t (or at least they’re not supposed to) coexist. And that’s probably why our offices are pressure cookers for stress. Encouraging play in your office can take several forms. Innocent pranking might be one. But introducing structured play is probably even better. Start an office-wide fantasy league. Bring a Scrabble board into the break room. Since we’re talking free here, find someone willing to donate a ping pong table (you have no idea how much stress can be removed from your office by a double elimination ping pong tournament). However you introduce play into your office, make sure it stays lighthearted and simple. The effects can work wonders. 5. Stretching Exercises for Work Our bodies weren’t built to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day. Sitting hunched all day, everyday doesn’t just make us sore—it makes us stressed. Stretching regularly comes with physical, as well as emotional, benefits. The trick here, is that you just can’t tell your employees to stretch because they won’t do it. You have to make stretching a priority. Make sure they know how to stretch. This might include posting new stretches on your intranet or break room. You can also dial things up a notch or two by conducting your own yoga classes. Just make sure you have a professional lead them in proper form to avoid pulled hamstrings.

It might also be one of the most effective. Breathing has a profound impact on our stress levels, but it occurs so naturally, that we hardly give it any thought. Teaching mindfulness and controlled breathing in your office might sound a little hippie or new age, but give it a try. The results will speak for themselves. Try this as a simple idea on how to start: Try breathing in synch with the below image If you would like to, try breathing in sync with this Or Ask Workwell about our Mindfullness Techniques 7. How Plants Can Boost Morale We also weren’t meant to sit under florescent lighting and drop ceiling panels all day. It’s just not good for the soul. Conversely, being in or around nature has a natural, soothing effect on us. Encourage your employees to bring plants in. Actually, you should bring plants in, too. Everyone should bring plants in. The greener your office, the better. And the less stressed out you’ll be. There are even plants that can help purify the air — an added bonus for all those breathing exercises you’ll be doing. One of our Favourites is Aloe Vera 8. The Silver Bullet: Work/Life Balance Okay, there might not be any “silver bullet” to eliminating stress in your office, but this last idea pays big dividends, but it’s the hardest to pull off. In our current work culture, results matter. But those results often come at a huge human cost. The ultimate stress reliever lives within the control of every single company, and it’s called work/life balance. In other words: minimise long meetings cut out the late nights long hours weekend work and early mornings If you want a happier, healthier, and more productive office, let your employees enjoy their lives. They’ll be better for it, and so will your business.
Forbes: The Truth About Employee Well-Being: Research Shows What Really Works
It turns out, a basket of fresh apples and an awe-inspiring motivational poster don’t count as a comprehensive wellness plan. But, according to research, it also turns out that comprehensive wellness plans alone often fall short of truly impacting an employee’s overall well-being—a concept that encompasses much more than just physical health. Source | David Sturt and Todd Nordstrom As a disclaimer, we don’t have anything against apples and motivational posters. In fact, we’re huge fans of comprehensive wellness programs—those that provide a laser-tight focus on physical health and include healthy snacks, fitness routines, and comprehensive information that could help employees improve their own health. However, new research reveals that when companies fail to empower an employee’s overall well-being, they miss out on a slew of positive effects. Studies show that high employee well-being can boost satisfaction, teamwork, productivity, and even improve a company’s bottom-line. Recently, the O.C. Tanner Institute surveyed over 2,000 employees from different generations, positions, and industries around the globe to answer questions about their well-being. A recently published white paper details the latest information on what companies can do to truly empower well-being in their workforces. However, we’ve distilled the paper’s findings into three simple steps you can take to build a more impactful well-being program. 1. Understand the difference between wellness and well-being Wellness initiatives that solely focus on physical wellness often misunderstand well-being. Holistically, well-being encompasses physical wellness, mental wellness and social wellness. So the first thing HR leaders can do to improve their initiative’s impact is to recognize that well-being reaches far beyond physical wellness, and to build in components of a program that address and inspire mental and social wellness, too. And, since well-being is a measure of overall life satisfaction, it doesn’t stop (or start) at the company door. Organizations should strive to understand how their initiatives impact overall employee well-being, both at home and at work, and aim to create a positive impact today, and in the future. 2. Understand the true impact of well-being Definitions aren’t enough. It’s important to understand the impact you could have, or could be missing from not understanding the role well-being can have within your company. On a 10-point scale, employees with excellent physical wellness have an overall well-being score of 6.66. Employees with excellent social wellness have an overall well-being score of 7.21. And employees with excellent mental wellness have an impressive overall score of 7.76. When employees rank excellent in all three wellness categories, they average a well-being score of 8.14, compared to an average score of 5.74 for those who don’t rank excellent in any category. It is crucial to think about all aspects of well-being when constructing new initiatives— especially when it comes to mental and social health, which are largely overlooked by many current programs. 3. Practice appreciation It might sound out of place when it comes to well-being, but when employees feel appreciated, and report being appreciated often, they rate higher overall well-being scores both inside and outside of work. Employees who receive recognition often or always, score 7.2, on average, on their overall well-being. Those who are rarely or never recognized at work, only score a 5.36. So, hone your recognition skills. Learn the best practices, and create a process and program to make sure you’re frequently showing your team how much you appreciate them. “How ‘bout them apples?” Apples and motivational posters are nice. But, when you look at the overall impact a focus on holistic well-being can pay off for your organization, the numbers may shock you. Individual productivity rises nearly 20%: Contributors with poor well-being only produce 64% of possible work output, while those with excellent well-being produce a whopping 83%. Team productivity soars too. Work output increases from 61% to 81% as team well-being goes from poor to excellent. Job satisfaction doubles with increased well-being: only 44% of employees with poor well-being say they are satisfied with their jobs, while 89% of those with excellent well-being say the same.
