Welcome to 2020

SMART Goals were great in the 80s. But today's authors need something more suited for changing times. They need QUALITY Goals.

QUALITY Goals take the best parts of SMART Goals — the specificity and ability to measure — and add in the parts that are missing. For a goal to truly be effective, it must be:

Quantifiable — will you be able to measure and evaluate your progress toward that goal.

Uplifting — will the journey toward the goal benefit or enrich your life in some way as much as attaining the goal would?

Ambitious — will the goal push you far enough outside of your comfort zone to spark real growth? Will it challenge you?

Lasting Consistency — does your goal have lasting consistency within the journey? In other words, will the goal require you to work constantly toward it, or will taking a break derail the entire track and make you lose progress?

Impact — will attaining the goal have an impact on some part of your life or the lives of people around you? How significant will that impact be?

Thrilling — does the prospect of achieving that goal hold enough excitement to keep you motivated and driven toward it? Will you be compelled to continue striving?

Your True Value — will attaining that goal bring you closer to your sense of self?

About the author.

Hi! I'm Naomi.

I started as a freelance web developer back in 2002. In 2004, I began ghostwriting novels and books for fiction and nonfiction alike. Finally, in 2006, I began niching down, specializing in web content for SEO, small business strategy and social media marketing.

In 2010, I almost quit freelance writing altogether. I was overworked, and underpaid and blaming everyone but myself. I went back to school for psychology and ended up learning more about myself than anything.

Today, I've ghostwritten more than 40 nonfiction books for small business and social media marketing experts.

If there's one thing that can get a writer stuck, it's trying to conform to the wrong goal-setting technique. QUALITY Goals take the best parts of SMART Goals (the specificity and measurability) but add emphasis on the journey toward those goals and the impact achieving those goals will produce.

If you have lofty ambitions that don't rely on numbers, you need QUALITY Goals.
