SMART Goals Are Failing You

Have you ever set a SMART Goal you did not achieve? If you did, it's not your fault. Find out why SMART goals just aren't enough to be successful.

Successful people know the secret

Do you set SMART Goals? Have you ever missed a goal that you worked on so hard, for so long? Don’t worry. You’re not alone. I want you to know that missing your target was not your fault. In fact, I want you to realise you never failed at all.

SMART Goals have been failing you!

What are SMART Goals?

I’ll quickly explain what they are… George T. Doran first wrote about SMART Goals in 1981. SMART stands for:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Realistic and
  • Time-bound.

What do you want?

I want you to pause for just a moment and ask yourself:

  • Would you like to turn your dreams into goals?
  • Do you want to be successful?
  • Would you like to set goals that motivate you?
  • Do you want a clear roadmap to get you there?

If you answered yes to any of those, don’t worry, you’re not alone. You’re still reading, so I’m guessing you want to be successful but there’s something holding you back. Does this sound like you?

My Story

Hi, my name is Danny. A few years ago, I had the same struggles as most people when it came to achieving my goals. I would always set goals using this same old formula. Sometimes I was successful and sometimes not.

Where did it all start?

I owed around two thirds of my annual income at my worst point. It was my own personal financial hell. Let’s rewind. My debt started at a modest $200, when I first used my credit card.

10 years later, my personal debt had multiplied, over and over.

In fact, each time I maxed out my credit card, the bank would send me another invitation to increase my credit limit. I accepted.

Then I got 2 credit cards because I wanted 1 for business expenses. Unfortunately, while my business was profitable, cash flow was killing me. I never had quite enough cash in the bank to clear my credit card.

My crazy debt

Then, I began unpaid training for my next job. For 8 months,

I had to sit on my credit card, as I didn’t have an income. But it didn’t end there, of course my debt followed me and just grew bigger, like a balloon.

I purchased a car using something called salary sacrifice, which meant I could legally pay off my vehicle and fuel expenses before the government took tax. I thought this was so clever. Well it was, until…

I changed jobs and in my new job, I couldn’t salary sacrifice any more. So, that meant my salary sacrifice agreement became a lease any my lease blew up like a balloon. Unlike a normal car loan, paying off a lease like this means you pay years of interest upfront. I couldn’t even pay it off early.

After 3 years of making payments on my car, I still owed more than the original purchase price of my car.

I was in my own financial hell

Enough was enough. I was sick of my debt. The time had come for me to make a better plan.

As far as I was concerned, I was in my own financial hell. I had piled up just as much guilt for myself, about my situation, as I had debt.

Just so you know, I had wanted to pay this debt off for a long time. I was in a world of pain and I wanted this debt gone. I wanted to feel proud of where I was in my life. Many times before I set a goal to clear my debt. Each time I had a specific, measurable, achievable target and a clear deadline. I failed, again and again.

I realised I wasn’t failing. So many experts told me that all I needed to be successful was the SMART formula. They were wrong. It wasn’t enough to have SMART Goals.

I knew what I wanted. I could picture it clearly in my mind. I had no problem working out what I wanted but I was struggling with how to get there.

Climbing out of hell

That’s when it hit me. I realised I loved the idea of reaching my goal but I wasn’t clear about the process. The parts I was clear about, I didn’t like. I had to find a way to love the process if I was going to achieve my goal.

In a movie Any Given Sunday, Al Pacino delivers a powerful speech to a football team. In it, he delivers one of my favourite lines. His team is losing so badly, Pacino describes it as being in hell. The following quote is from his speech.

“We can stay here and get the sh*t kicked out of us or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb out of hell, one inch at a time.”

Al Pacino, Any Given Sunday

The first time I heard that speech, I thought wow. Anything is possible if you break it down into a step-by-step plan.

I had to stop thinking of the road ahead in miles and start thinking in inches. I was sure I could jump from one stepping stone to another, if they were only a few inches apart.

I created a roadmap, which helped me clarify my goals, break them down into small, bite sized pieces, and take action on them. I read dozens of books, took courses and listened to people who I knew were successful. I took action and tested a lot of what I learned. I kept what worked, tweaked it for my own needs and threw out the rest.

SMART goals just aren’t enough

I could see how much time I needed to pay off my debt and I had a clear action plan to make it happen. I set goals but I learned as much about missing my goals, as I did about achieving them.

Why did I miss my goals? Because SMART goals were only part of the truth. Management gurus kept repeating the same formula, over and over, but something was missing.

Why then, when I was failing, did people drag me through that same tired old process for setting goals?

Perhaps the managers and the people I sought advice from were happy where I was. Maybe the other things I discovered actually were a secret. Maybe they didn’t realised it was possible to achieve goals and find fulfilment, all in the same ‘brush stroke’. I’m not sure.

Why do people keep pushing SMART goals?

Most big companies want you to set goals and they are happy for you to think, as long as you stay within the box they designed for you. They’re afraid you might find out there’s life beyond those 4 walls. You might find work that’s more fulfilling than what you do now.

They run the risk that you could stop working on what they want and start working on what you want instead.

Once I added a few missing ingredients to my own goals, I quickly paid off my debt. Within 2 years, I achieve 2 more BIG life goals. I married my beautiful wife and we saved a house deposit. Less than a year later, we moved into our dream home. I was ticking off goals faster than I ever thought possible.

I want to share what I know, so people like you can get what you want. That’s why I created my Goal Setting Masterclass.

Who else did this help?

My goal setting techniques worked for some other people I know too. One retiree hand wrote a testimonial for me because she wanted more out of life and I helped her do that.

A personal trainer I know told me that since he and his family have used the techniques I taught to achieve their goals AND free up time. How is that possible? Because they have laser like focus on the things that will help them achieve their goals and they say NO to everything else.

Once I had the manager of a local heritage listed function centre approach me 1 full year after my workshop. She explained how I helped her prioritise an extremely busy workday. She still uses what I taught her every day.

How else did this help me?

Not only did setting goals start to make me more successful but I was finding greater fulfilment.

I was able to prioritise and focus more intently in what I was doing. Living life on purpose.

That’s exactly why I created my Goal Setting Masterclass, so I could share what I learned with others and help them get more out of life.

It took over 100 hours to create this course
