Planning - 5 Characteristics of Great Goals

What are the five characteristics that great goals tend to have?

Great goals tend to have the following five characteristics:
1.     Specific—clearly targeted key results and outcomes to be accomplished.
2.     Timely—linked to specific timetables and “due dates.”
3.     Measurable—described so results can be measured without ambiguity.
4.     Challenging—include a stretch factor that moves toward real gains.
5.     Attainable—although challenging, realistic and possible to achieve.
