How to Set and Achieve SMART Goals: Crash Course Business Soft Skills #9

Video taken from the channel: CrashCourse

Start light, employ a trainer for a few sessions to get you tips on form and create a weekly lifting schedule. Over time, you’ll lift a little more each week until you hit your goal, thanks to measurable progress. Then you get to enjoy setting a whole new goal to crush.

By using the SMART goal-setting method whether as a corporation or as an independent, we are able to create a structured goal that is attainable, contains success criteria and will hold us accountable to the results. Here is how to crush your goals the SMART way! We have all met someone that talks the talk, but doesn’t walk the walk.

It might feel great to crush that goal, but realistically, what are you sacrificing to get there? If it’s something you don’t want to give up, you may need to tweak that larger aim. Being realistic also means knowing your limitations and setting goals based on steady work. Using the marathon example, maybe you’ve only run a mile so far. If your plan is to spend the first 30 minutes of every day working towards your goal, then actually spend the first 30 minutes of every day DOING THE THINGS that will get you closer to your goal.

Keep moving forward. Take action. Now is the magic word of success, which means if you want to CRUSH your goal, you need to be someone who does things. Your Best Season Planner™ is a printable planner for action takers with big dreams.

We know that goal-setting can be quite intimidating especially if you set goals for the entire year so we designed this quarterly planning system to help you keep your grand vision in mind while taking consistent action on your goals productively and purposefully at the same time. Stay Motivated. The key to following through with goals is to stay motivated. This is why writing goals down and hanging them up in the kitchen is a motivator.

When you are reminded of your goal and see it daily you will stay motivated. Giving yourself small rewards is another way to keep going. Jon Acuff, in his newest book Finish, talks about the importance of cutting your goals in half because we often shoot for the moon when we should be shooting for just down the street. If you want to crush goals – cut them in half.

5. Check in with your goals weekly. Seven Areas of Life for Smart Goals. We recommend you set goals for these seven significant areas of life: Financial Goals: Start saving for retirement, get out of debt, or use a monthly zero-based budget. Spiritual Goals: Pick up a new devotional, start a daily journal, or plug in to a group at your church.

Fitness Goals: Hit the gym more often, take the stairs, and remember to eat your veggies. SMART Goals examples for your health. Here are some sample SMART goals for your health. Remember, you would need to then plan or build a strategy for your goal and, depending what it is, you may want to do sub-goals.

Walk three miles every morning before work for. Perhaps the most important question to ask yourself before you take on a new goal is: What do you want your life to look like, 6 Ways to Hold Yourself Accountable and Crush Your Goals.

I certainly didn’t create the concept of SMART goals, not by a long shot.

But smart goals almost always end up being small goals, utterly predictable and absurdly measured small plans for small people who need certainty and safety to such a degree they cannot wade into the wide territory of the unknown where real vision and progress lives.

  • Lovely Video! Sorry for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard about Proutklarton Mind Instructor Plan (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a great exclusive product for Improving your life without the normal expense. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my friend at last got astronomical success with it.

  • Winner of a video, I have been researching “why smart goals” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Xiyvery Pandalyn Rule (search on google )?

    It is a good one off product for understanding one simple trick to easily get success in your life without the normal expense. Ive heard some super things about it and my friend got amazing results with it.

  • Awesome shit brother!

    I love your new content layout simliar to Brian Dean’s shit.

    I did the same thing with my channel and made some dank YT gains.

    Anyways, keep it up brother. Hopefully I’ll be able to pay my respects and fly out to one of your events one day.


  • Hands up if you here as a nursing student tryna careplan and not learn about how somebody grew up and developed a 5 year plan.

    A does not stand for ambitious. It stands for Attainable or Achievable. Theres no point in setting goals you cannot achieve. A smart goal is not ambitious, a SMART goal is attainable.

  • Guys, does any of you have advise on how to define a challenging but realistic deadline?

    In my experience, most of the times giving a goal a challenging but still achivable deadline is very very hard to estimate. What ends up happening is that you either put a deadline thats too easy to achieve or one that is too hard, compromising the challenging (or the attainable) part of the goal.

    For example, if you are a tennis player and set a goal of “entering the top 100 players”. How do you set a challenging but realistic time to that? You getting there depends on a lot of elements of randomness like the performance of other players, the speed of your mental evolution, your coach, etc etc. All of that makes it very hard to estimate a realistic deadline, and in life most things works he same way…

  • 2:20 I finished school more than half a year ago, and I feel a similar feeling except instead of feeling like I’m a failure, I feel like I wasted quite a bit of time and I’m not sure what’s the best step forward

  • I’m a commerce student and my friend who is a nerdfighter reminded me why your channel exists. My tutor used one of your videos to explain globalisation and this business video is helping me with my soft skills. Thanks

  • Regarding “It’s okay to table a goal” it’s also okay to keep plugging away at it in small amounts if that’s something that works better. Sometimes that won’t work, obviously. You can’t always quit half way through a task. But especially if it’s a big project, doing a little every day is a valid way to make progress. It’s also not a sign of failure to take longer at a given task or goal than some other person. I’ve had to remind myself of all this quite frequently. My biggest struggle has always been that first step, though.

  • It’s sad that we have prepared the next generation of adults so poorly that 2/3 of an episode of a show ostensibly about soft skills in business has to be devoted to the formulation and pursuit of goals. That’s not a business soft skill, that’s a core aspect of so-called “adulting”.

  • ”Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with evergrowing insistency. Remember that our sons and grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us. Let your watchword be order and your beacon beauty.” – attributed (possibly apocryphally) to Daniel Burnham

  • Feel like switching the A to ambitious is a bad move. People that struggle to structure their goals and process have a tendency toward goals that are too big, and rarely pick goals that are too small. Encouraging people to choose ambition instead of attainable will cause a lot of people to stall out and achieve less.

  • Putting priorities on the back burner, like trading success in college for my personal health and survival, has caused me to fail classes and get suspended by FAFSA. But at least I am still alive…so I have to get effective treatment and prove I am “mentally stable” within 2 months in order to attend college next semester. Oh, and I travelled to this U.S. university from IRELAND…. Maybe I can make a good story out of this later down the road?

  • Uuughh. HR scamspeak alert!!! SMART is one of those acronyms high-fee business consultants use to fleece corporations of money that should be going to providing employees with decent health and pension benefits. Next video on Meyer-Briggs?

  • Based on what I learned in school, SMART means: specific, measurable, achievable/attainable, realistic, and time-bounded. Maybe each school, university, group, or company have their own definition of what the acrobym stands for.:)

  • Here is a warning: your employer is going to set goals for you, as the video shows. They are not always directly financial to the business, but they might be to you. Make sure these don’t throw a wrench in your personal goals, or your morals. My last employer required 10 hours of volunteer work a week for one of the non-profits they support. The one before that required an additional certification every six months and would only reimburse a passing test. They would also not reimburse yearly continuing education costs on those certifications.

    A cautionary tale: In the US, financial advisors are sometimes given sweetheart deals by firms as a sign on. This is usually in the form of a loan that is forgiven over five consecutive years of working at the firm. This loan is meant for financial advisors to invest and demonstrate to their clients that the products they recommend are also products they invest in. The corporate mores tell a different tale, and that is clients expect a financial advisors to look successful. Nice suits, a nice car, a nice house, a golf club membership, a wife and kids, etc. Most use the majority of the loan for that, and it can come around and bite them if they quit or are fired. Since it is a forgiveness loan, the firm comes for the remainder that might not exist if they are buying into the corporate culture. I’ve heard some nightmare tales of people following the corporate and client expectations and coming out the worse for it.

  • Thank you for this. I’m an experienced scientist already over 10 years into my field of employment…yet for me this has been useful to understand future goal making

  • Obtaining a position that requires troubleshooting, typing and if I’m lucky database views should have been obtainable. Now my year of job searching is almost up and it’s already time to start a master’s. However, that job “is a part of the education,” says everyone.

  • Smart goal number 1 I am going to lose half of the weight before I finish my 25th crash video.
    Sub goal 1 I’ll join a gym today.
    Sub goal 2 I’ll fix an appointment with a nutritionist
    Sub goal 3 Stick to my commitments.
    I love you host. THANKYOU FOR THE VIDEO.

  • Love these sort of vids! I have my own channel not fitness, magic tricks, entertainment fun and shit please take a look and sub keep it up BC

  • So much free knowledge supplied here, its a simple as you put it, have a goal set up a plan with deadlines and just fucken stick to it, pretty straight forward but many see it as rocket science, good shit Brandon appreciate videos like this!����

  • Tom you’re a great soul, like a bird can sing her song, I think “your deep driving desire, is your bliss to inspire/ empower, etc.,, so many people around the world. Thank you so much you and your Team!!

  • I’ve been taught that the “A” in “S.M.A.R.T.” was “Attainable.” Ask yourself, “Is this goal within my ability to successfully do?”

  • This really helped (I’ve been having trouble getting motivated for school and getting assignments done and I’ve been leaving it to the last minute and not knowing if I was getting everything done until the night before) so this helped with some new ideas on how to get it done.

  • As a assistant senior patrol leader I went through a lot of leadership training in fact I took a camp on developing leadership skills. SMART goals and knowing of Forming Storming Norming and Preforming. These skills are paramount.

  • So for the young foxes among us: these steps might seem simple. These steps might feel underwhelming or overwhelming. But dont worry: Try to keep these goals in mind and the many others of this channel. They will put you one step ahead even when you feel like your 5 steps behind. Reality is knowing what you wanted, where you ended and why. Next time you’ll use that knowledge. The expert aren’t that far ahead, they just look that way.

  • This is a long story, but A small moment of harvesting the darkness for me was at a party last week. It was one of the after-parties to a large gaming convention and I at first both had some fun at it (they had street fighter v to play on the TV’s) but was also kind of lonely because I didn’t go with anyone in particular. I did a casual cosplay as a character from a game that got popular over the last couple months from a lot of humorous YouTuber videos and met a couple new people that way to take pictures with, but I didn’t find any longtime friends at PAX west except for one who was chilling with her friend while doing some cosplay repair in the big between exhibition halls area.

    Anyway at the party, the dance floor was slow to get going and there was also a very informal cosplay contest going on. Basically you would walk on the small stage, (the party was at a well liked bar with a medium-small stage) and do a few poses or moves and then walk off.
    Now I at first didn’t want to do the cosplay contest because my outfit was kind of easy, even though it was a semi well known character (who wears very normal preppy clothes) I didn’t feel worthy compared to the few other people there who had really nice cosplays with like intricate armor and props. I kind of just wanted to dance and meet a few people. Shortly later, I saw an oldish friend/acquaintance who I have on Facebook but they don’t really hang out a lot, but I had met them in person a couple times before over the course of a couple years, and I just wanted to say hi, and see if it was them, because it was dark in the bar, and like me they had changed their hair color/style since I last saw them. A really nice dude who may had been one of the hosts/workers of the party kind of encouraged me to say hi and he cut into the conversation she was having with her girlfriend, and I did try to say hi but with the nice dude trying to introduce us, (even though we’d seen eachother before) it was super! freaking! awkward! despite his good intentions because 1. She didn’t really remember me, and 2. In retrospect I realized she was talking to her Girlfriend, not just any friend, and didn’t wish to interrupt that.

    So then I felt super humiliated because I realized I had tried to draw attention to myself at a very inconvenient moment in a super awkward way and just got kind of annoyed and mad. 1. At myself for being so foolish to think anyone would remember me, and 2. For making nice new dude look like a dick in front of old acquaintance who I incorrectly assumed would remember me.

    So the night goes on for a few minutes more and I’m dancing with some other friendly group of people I don’t know, and I’m just kind of stewing and trying to get into the music and forget about everything, but then one of the guys running the cosplay contest comes up to me and asks if I want to join. At first I decline but he says “are you sure? because some people are begging me to ask you to.” So at that point I was pretty confused but a little bit happy. I said I’d think about it if I could set my bag somewhere and eventually signed up.

    The part of this for me that relates to “the darkness” is that I felt horrible for being forgotten by an acquaintance, and acting painfully awkward, so in this situation I decided that I would take this opportunity to make an impression, become nearly impossible to forget, and own my awkwardness to the fullest, especially since the character I was cosplaying was kind of an awkward-handsome-goofy-dad type. I pushed away my fear of embarrassment, because I was more angry about the idea of not having a good time, (while all my other friends were having a good time at a concert hall downtown,) and making the most of the night, and committed to doing some dance moves that the character does from the game on that stage, and had fun and made the crowd go wild. I may not have won prizes because I had to leave early to catch transit, but you better believe it that I did something memorable that night.

  • You can have specialized goals when you have across the board clarity in your vision (architecture) it allows you to see how the pivot impacts your goals and gives you a better tally of ROI.

  • This was great, thanks, I’ve been looking for “making smart goals” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Xiyvery Pandalyn Rule (just google it )?

    It is an awesome one off guide for understanding one simple trick to easily get success in your life without the normal expense. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my mate got great success with it.

  • Just wonderful, I been tryin to find out about “goal setting activity” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Seyrayson Startling Scheme (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? It is an awesome one of a kind product for discovering how to achieve your ultimate life goals without the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my mate got great results with it.

  • Mr Bilyeu was phenomenal, his level of self awareness in astronomical, the ideal prize for me would be the $400 000 000 lottery, failing that it would be a private Q&A session with Tom lasting 6 hours. Yes I have that many questions. lol ��

  • I really wanted to show this video to my middle school classes, but unfortunately. I know they would get distracted by the grunting sounds. I wish another example was used instead of a physical one.

  • At first i did not like because the clickbait thumbnails. But now i regret every video that i missed. You’re a real man and true inspiration. Keep it up, Brandon.

  • And if you are a “mechanic” and you have to work 10-12 hours per day and your goals don’t matter than… welcome to adulthood. (and don’t even get me started, i’m 30 y/o PhD)

  • Now that was the video I needed. I’m writing my goals and the plan to lose 40 lbs down right now and get to action. I’ll let you know how my transformation goes. Thanks for motivation Brandon!

  • I LOVE that you’re covering this! I just took a class on social work burnout and SMART goals was the center of the class. It’s such a wonderful way to achieve anything and everything, including self-care.

  • An example of rewarding the wrong thing is in the office when they set a prize for the branch that looses the most collective weight to fight obesity. It leads to one character being in the hospital because she went on an unhealthy juice cleanse for days, eating nothing, and also lead to arguments between employees and doing things like taking away unhealthy food or berating people.

  • While I’m not in the personal training business, this gave me a refresher on what to do for my writing goals and how to take them more seriously, so thank you!

    Also, I need to improve my diet because my energy levels are shitty, what videos do you recommend to help that?

  • LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! How much did I pay a college to teach me this “soft” skill? Don’t care… the single most important concept ever; personally and professionally. This is a magnificent use of the public platform! I love this show…

  • Hi Tom, in 5 years time I see the comic books, some films the film merchant dice, V.R interactive fun adventure learning games, you and Impact Theory fillings venues like Tony Robbins, some themes around guest lead by you, all around leaving the matrix, so its 2022 & by then you would also be looking 10 years ahead at creating a real life interactive parks on a massive scale where people children and family’s come from all over the world for fun and to learn and yes get the bonus of a Impact Theory experience that changes their lives & change the world to a informed positive palace. Why not!

  • Kudos for the Video clip! Forgive me for chiming in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you considered Patlarny Ancient Secrets Principle (search on google)? It is a smashing one of a kind product for maximising your life using a simple goal setting strategy without the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my friend Sam at very last got cool results with it.

  • I love your first sentence Tom. Since the money I’ve put up is $0 (ok that’s a lie I did get a no bullshit mug), I’d say that I’ve gotten my money’s worth.:)

  • Goals are very hard to understand and achieve because they can be so broad and unreachable. This video really gives you a formula that is easy to follow and will help you cut down on your goals.

  • That moment where you think Tom’s repeating himself or that deja vu is happening… Ah, this is from the live. Neeevermind 😉

    PS Despite being there for the whole thing, aside from a mustache, I still don’t know what any of the easter eggs were lol.
