Setting clear goals means knowing exactly what you want to accomplish within a certain timeframe. Goals must be S.M.A.R.T.
|Specific||A clear description of what you want|
|Measurable||How much it costs in the future|
|Achievable||It is with reach|
|Relevant||It is aligned with other objective|
|Time-bound||it has a deadline|
