Quick Bytes: SMART Goals vs. HARD Goals

I’m a big believer in goal setting – that’s why I encourage everyone to make a Life List. On the Personal Branding Blog, Heather Huhman goes into detail about what makes a SMART goal and what makes a HARD goal. It’s probably not what you’re expecting.

SMART goals are about clearly mapping out a plan to achieve them:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Action-oriented
  • Realistic
  • Time-bound

But HARD goals are not about setting yourself up for failure – they require an intense engagement of your brain and are all about visualizing the path to the goal and using your emotional, visual, survival, and learning systems:

  • Heartfelt
  • Animated
  • Required
  • Difficult

Murphy discovered that goal success isn’t determined by daily habits, raw intellect, or writing numbers on a worksheet, and that it actually depends on the engagement of your brain. HARD goals can help you do that.
