Anybody who has endured even the tiniest bit of management training has been tought to set goals using the SMART acronym. It stands for ‘specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bounded’.
Anybody who has ever had even the tiniest bit of life experiance knows to add an F.
Goals must be flexible. If you set yourself to run a marathon and it turns out you can not do it - change the goal. Re-think and re-set. It is not failure.
If you have dreams and visions that seem unobtainable, set a goal to get you towards that dream, not the dream itself. You will change on the way towards the dream and so will the dream.
Allow yourself to be flexible, allow your dreams to change when you do and please for goodness sake, allow for others to change and develope into better individuals in a better world.
