SMART GOALS ARE:

  • Measurable - How am I now and how will I be different?
     

  • Achievable - What is my motivation for achieving this goal?
     

  • Relevant - Will pursuing this goal prevent me from doing something that is more important to me?
     

  • Time-Bound - How much time will it take to reach the goal?

WOOP Stands for:
 

  • Identifying your Wish (your goal)
     

  • Describe one positive Outcome of achieving this goal.
     

  • Describe one Obstacle that might stand in the way.
     

  • Make a Plan for how you can get around that obstacle. (if… then…)
