Rules for success

Last year we set goal fit for 2010 and have achieved what we could and learnt from mistakes made. 2011 we need to set new goals to ensure that we work smarter towards success.

Last year in an issue of "theTeacher" I came across an article about pre-planning and thought this is definitely something to share with each and everyone of you.
Smarter is an acronym used to help design powerful, successful goals. This acronym makes goal setting easy to formulate and serves as a checklist to determine if the goals are worthwhile. The meaning of each letter is:

S: Specific
M: Measurable
A: Achievable
R: Realistic
T: Time-bound
E: Ethical
R: Rewarding

Tomorrow we'll look at the each letter of the acronym individually and provide examples of how this acronym can be implemented in your planning for the year ahead. In the meanwhile, think your goals for your learners and school this year.
