Reference of SMART Goals

SMART

I think the SMART acronym is often misrepresented as Specific Measurable Achievable Realistice and Timebound. I think people have difficulty with the Achievable and Realistic elements. Try Specifc Measurable Alligned Relevant and Timebound. I think it is much better and I actually think this is the correct acronym. Why? Would a Vinci have designed a Helicopter with the usual acronym. Think Realistic!!!
