A Goal is something that you have to work hard at to achieve.

Goal setting is often called “the master skill of success.” The system of goal setting will prove to be invaluable in every aspect of life. We learn to reflect on all worthwhile tasks and break them down to achievable size, one step at a time.

Properly setting goals is a skill vital to success in all areas of life. Using the S.M.A.R.T. goal setting technique, for personal and professional development, is a step in the right direction.
