Goals must be SMART:

S - Specific. It should not be ambiguous or vague. Not just the wishful thinking. Needs to be Specific enough to motivate you

M - Measurable. If we cannot measure it, we cannot accomplish it. Measurement is a way of monitoring our progress.

A - Achievable. Achievable means that it should be out of reach enough to be challenging but it should not be out of sight, otherwise it becomes disheartening.

R - Realistic. Unrealistic goals can never be achieved. It just makes you depressed.

T - Time-bound. There should be a starting date and a finishing date.
