ESTABLISHING THE GOAL METHODOLOGY S.M.A.R.T. SIMPLE – the goal should be to the point, understandable, and not leaving place for interpretation MEASURABLE - it should be formulated in such a way that the level of its achievement can be stated in figures, or at least so that there are clear criteria of its attainment ACHIEVABLE - realistic; one that is too ambitious undermines your faith in achieving it, and at the same time it destroys your motivation RELEVANT – the goal should be an important step forwards, as well as it should be important for the person striving to achieve it TIMELY DEFINED – the timespan/deadline of attaining the goal should be well defined
GOAL TYPES Short-term: - achieved during or just after the implementation of the project - temporary - the effects are not stable Long-term: - long-lasting or constant - achieved, or lasting long after the project has been implemented - the effects are long-lasting

What are the future stages/elements of my actions? What are the goals of each element of my actions? What types of action do I choose? Are the forms chosen by me appropriate for my participants/recipients? Is a theatrical play a goal or is it an action?
