Project SMART Goal

Before starting a new project, you need a goal to keep yourself on track, to stay motivated, and to have something specific to work towards. 

Revisit SMART goals

  • Remember when we first talked about SMART goals? If you need a quick refresher, check out this path again. 

Project SMART goals

  • Set a timer for 3 minutes and write down as many dreams and goals you have for your project. Go wild with your ideas!
  • Once the timer goes off, pick your top 3 ideas that are achievable and super motivating for you.
  • Turn each of these ideas into SMART goals. Remember, you want your goal to be able to tell you when you reach it (for example: fundraise $1000, donate to 25 families). We call that an indicator of success! 
  • Share your 3 goals with at least two cohort partners, adults, or friends. Ask them:
    • What challenges do they see for you to achieve this goal?
    • Is the goal a true SMART goal? (Explain what SMART goals are if they don’t know!)
    • Why do they think you’ll be successful with each goal?
  • After getting feedback, choose your final SMART goal you want to focus on for this project and post it on the path.
