The S.M.A.R.T. Way to Achieve Your Goals in 2017

We have heard it far too many times, "New year, new me!"  It makes a great sentence, however, the application is the most difficult part of achieving our goals. For me, I revise my five-year plan every year. I have a plan for my home life, each one of my kids, my wife, career, and overall picture. Writing my plans down is what keeps me on track. Today I read a stat that 85% of advisors who gross >1MM have a sales plan and business plan written out in detail.  Writing it down is nice, although if you do it wrong, your plan can be completely useless. This is why I like to follow the S.M.A.R.T. acronym when I plan any goal achieving exercise.  Whether your goal is huge or small, applying the S.M.A.R.T. system can add tremendous value, and make you feel smarter.
