I’d like to sing in front of an audience.
This goal is “off target” because it isn't specific, doesn't have a deadline and isn’t measurable. It doesn’t have the necessary characteristics of “what,” “when” and “how.”
I’d like to be featured in two (measure) cabaret shows at a local piano club (specific) within the next 12 months (deadline).
The “on-target” goal offers a clear vision of the what, when and how of successfully completing the goal.
