S.M.A.R.T.

This will be a 5 part blog covering each letter, examples for each section, and case study at the end. Feel free to subscribe, and share this with your friends.In today’s blog we will be covering the S in SMART goal setting! Now when we think of the S in SMART we want your goal to be Specific! If you have a goal that is too vague, you will be less likely to reach it. Some questions you may want to ask before setting your goal are:

  • What do you want to achieve?
  • Where?
  • When?
  • What are the limitations to reach your goal?

A normal goal you see within the streaming community may be to reach X amount of followers. Now, when you are starting out you will be ready to go full tilt, you may think, OK today is day one you are aiming for 100-300 followers on your channel. Well, first off lets apply some of the above questions!

What do you want to achieve? 100-300 followers

Now, does this look like a specific goal. not really 100-300 is very broad. Also, without a set time frame, this is a goal that could take 1 month, or 3 months and you will still feel accomplished, but maybe give up as well out of frustration.

Where? On your streaming channel

This is an obvious one, but another you may want to add in is your socials. Carry that same goal over to Twitter, or Instagram, whichever you prefer. Both are powerful tools that will help you connect with like-minded people who may be able to help you with your goal.

What are the limitations to reaching your goal?

Some limitation can be anything from, is the game your streaming popular, do people want to watch it? How many people are streaming said game, during said time. Now that you asked yourself these questions, and maybe more, what do you think would be a more Specific goal to set!

Tweet me what YOU would set as a more specific goal using #MysticMikeLive #MysticSMART, and in the next blog I will feature the best answers with a shout out to your twitter!

I hope you enjoyed part one of the S.M.A.R.T. Goal Setting, Streamers Edition! We will be back for Part two M is for Measurable!
