Mama Jenn  on 48% of my goals

leaving 52%  Mission NOT Accomplished YET

Over half of my goals I am not accomplishing so I decided to filter them through the SMART Technique of setting goals.
I asked myself if the goals I am having a hard time reaching are:
  •  Specific enough or too broad
  • Mesaurable by an appropriate unit of measurement
  • Attainable for my situation and season of life
  • Realistic and relevant to my life right now
  • Too many or too small of an amount of Time to accomplish the goal
With that in mind, I have set my goals for May and adjusted some of the goals I have not yet accomplished.
