GOAL 1 - Meet People
The above goal "meet people" has a lot of problems with it. First, it's definitely not a SMART goal. Second, it's unclear as to how this goal is a professional development goal. Third, it needs to come with a way to define the next actions that should be taken.
Let's start by making the goal SMART. What kind of people need to be met? Presumably, other professionals either in your field or people that can help you to advance your field. Let's get even more specific: Become active in a professional association.
Now how will we measure this goal? How active will you be? Will you attend all meetings? Will you become a board member? Will you join? How will you determine if you have met this goal? The goal also has to be attainable. If you can only make one meeting a month because of an already full schedule, don't set your goal up to fail by requiring yourself to make weekly meetings.
For the goal to be relevant, it has to be a professional organization that helps you to advance your career, not a random organization. Finally, it has to be time-specific. When will you know you've met this goal?
Perhaps the revised goal will look like this:
I attend monthly meetings of the freelancers organization and introduce myself to at least three people at each meeting for six months. I follow up with those people after the meeting to form connections and grow my network.
Can you see the next actions for this goal?
