SMART Goals Paper Fold

February 12th, 2013

Paradigm Shift

Almost everyone has a goal or a dream, but many do not know how to make their goals SMART Goals. This activity will help participants make their goals more specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound.
Number of Participants: 1-Unlimited
Time:  15-25 minutes
Activity Level:  Low
Props: A piece of paper per participant (any size will work, but the larger the better) & writing utensils.
Objective: Use this interactive activity to help participants make their goals SMART goals. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-Bound)
Description:

After the activity, the participants should now have a piece of paper with their SMART Goal, some factors that say how they could achieve the goal (attainable), their reasons for attaining that goal (relevant), and a date to accomplish the goal (time-bound).
Variations:

  1. Encourage participants to draw or paint their goals, this will help them become more realistic.
  2. Bring old magazines and glue to let the participants make their last page into an art masterpiece.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. What did it feel like once you had a SMART Goal?
  2. Do you feel like you are closer to achieving your goal now?
  3. What is the next action step now that you have a SMART Goal?
  4. What were some of the things on your relevant page? Why do you want to achieve this goal?
  5. Who can help you achieve this goal?

Facilitator Notes:
It is usually very beneficial to combine this workshop with a brief introduction to SMART Goals. It works to explain SMART Goals either before the activity, or as a step-by-step guide during the initiative.
Let me know if you have any questions on how to implement this into your program or have any ideas on how to use SMART Goals Paper Fold.
