Setting SMART goals helps you set realistic goals that are actually attainable.
Process goals are the easiest goals to achieve because we have the most control over them. The goal is to do something, whether it be work out three times a week, or transfer money to savings once a week.
A performance goal is a standard that you want to achieve. Your performance goal might be something like “save 5K by the end of the year” or "be able to run a mile in under 10 minutes"
Your outcome goal is the end result. Maybe you want to increases your net worth by 10%, or qualify for a track team. These are harder to achieve because they aren't entirely in your control.
