H.E.A.R.T Goals

Is your goal right for you?

Before moving forward with your goal, assure yourself that it is the right goal for you.   Consider the following questions:

  1. What is your goal? Specifically state what you want to achieve, include the who, what, where and when of it.
  2. What will this goal do for you?
  3. What will be the benefit from that?
  4. Why is this important to you?

SMART goals address the logical side of goal setting.  My daughter, Melissa, and I created HEART goals and address the emotional side of goal setting.


Does your goal reflect your passion?  Is this something you believe in and does it come from your heart? A goal you are passionate about and believe in has the sustainability to be achieved.


Are you willing to embrace this wholeheartedly?  Is this a goal you can commit to?


Does this adhere to your values?  Your values are important to you and those around you.  A goal that lies within your values is worth of your time and attention. Will you be proud of yourself once your goal is accomplished?


Does this goal reflect where you are and where you want to be?


Are you being true to yourself?  Are you working toward this goal because it is something you want, or because it is what others want for you?  If you have created your goal to make other people happy, you will not put your all into it and will soon get bored and move on to something else.

Does your goal compare with the HEART model? Do you will feel your goal is right for you?  Do all angles make sense?
