Specific: Define exactly what you want to accomplish.

Measurable: Make sure you can track progress and measure outcomes.

Achievable: Create a plan with a reasonable chance of success.

Relevant: Check your goals align with your overall strategy.

Time-limited: Work towards a deadline to keep on track and focused.
