SMART Goals vs DUMB Goals
by Louise D'Allura on February 26th, 2015

I saw this video months ago and LOVED IT!  While I am a planner I have often struggled and resisted SMART Goals!!!!!!  You know the drill - ​Goals should be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely.  But to be honest I think I had SMART Goal FATIGUE!!!!!!!!  

While they are great in theory they lack a lot of the energy behind them - you know dreams and other rocket fuel to keep going, so that is why when I watched this 12 minute video with Brendon Buchard a few months ago I was absolutely thrilled.  It explains how to get the ENERGY into a goal.  I really resonated with this and hope you do too.  

​I was introduced to the work of ​Brendon Burchard a few years ago when a mentor gave me a copy of his book "THE MILLIONAIRE MESSENGER." It was fantastic and I have enjoyed watching and reading his work over the years.  Brendon's story is amazing - in a nutshell he had a car accident at 19 years of age and decided to follow his dreams - he's a New York Times bestselling author and has dedicated his life to helping others find their 'charge' and share their voice with the world. He's a pretty exciteable dude so I totally get him from that perspective ;)
In summary Brendon defines DUMB goals like this:

D = Dream/ Destiny Driven
U = Uplifting
M = Method friendly (practices that are repeatable)
B = Behaviour Driven

It is worth taking the time to watch it to learn more about these DUMB goals because I think they are BRILLIANT!

What do you think?  I would love to hear from you!  In the comments below, tell me what you think of SMART goals?  Do you love them or are you open to the idea of DUMB goals to get the fire going?  I would love hear!
