Measurable: This simply means that you identify exactly what you will see, hear and/or feel, when you reach those goals. It means breaking your goals down into measurable elements. Defining the objectives of your goal makes it clearer and easier to read.

Attainable: What needs to happen to achieve the goals? Are the goal achievable, considering the circumstances around you such as environment, resources, time etc.?

Realistic: There are some goals that are simply not realistic; a goal has to be something that isreasonable and can become a reality in our lives.
