Hi, so I have been thinking about this for a while and felt I should perhaps broaden my horizons with regard to who I discuss this topic with. Each year at school we each have to make 3 SMART targets. I personally hate making these. It makes me limit my aspirations to fit the 'realistic' part of the target setting, yet I know that I can and I am determined to achieve more than that. I have many other reasons, but I was wondering what you guys' take was on it? Thanksss

I think that the basic concept is good. It could certainly be annoying to be told to be 'realistic' when you feel that actually you can do much better if you knuckle down at something. But by the same token, some people find it really helpful to have a target that fells both realistic and very acheivable for them and work better within that kind of framework.
I think it works well for some and not so well for others, same as anything really..!
