Goals, Anyone?

I've been thinking a lot about goals lately. I think that everyone at one time or another has been to some sort of training session where there has been a presentation on how to make and meet goals. Personally, I'm a fan of the S.M.A.R.T. method, whereby the goals you set are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound.

Despite mapping my goals out in this way, I still fall short more often than I'd like to admit. So that leads me to an open call for anybody who is reading this: what methods work for you? do you know of any good books about goals? what experiences can you share about goal-setting/achieving?

In my head I've been formulating a possible future business idea surrounding the idea of goals, so I'm hoping to learn everything I can about them. Again, whether you're a regular reader of my blog or some random person whom I don't know, please comment and leave your thoughts!

Goals are easier for me when they are broken down into small goals. For example, if I want to run a 5K, I make a goal to go to the gym at a certain time each day. Then I make small goals for what I want to accomplish at the gym in specific. By reaching the small goals, it helps me to more easily attain the big ones. NIKE helps too: "Just do it."
