SMART Goals as an LTG

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

Written by: Sarah Kim, LTG of Division 15 & Allyson Kim, LTG of Division 11

It is important to set realistic and practical goals as you progress through an important project so that you can end with a complete and fully developed product that you are proud of. SMART goals help you develop specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound objectives to keep you on track towards success.

As a Lieutenant Governor on the Georgia District Board, one of my SMART goals is to either charter or reactivate two new clubs by the end of my term to make sure that Key Club continues to grow and provide service for our community. Doing this would also introduce several new people to Key Club and the entire community it brings and fosters.

Another goal I have is to hold a Divisional Rally by February 14th next year, which is near the end of my term. During this rally, I hope to elect a new Lieutenant Governor and invite all of the attendees to the 2024 Service and Leadership Conference.

By working towards achieving all of these goals, I can help my division flourish and continue to grow. I highly recommend making your own SMART goals, whether they be a long-term goal or a series of short-term goals to achieve something in the future!

S.M.A.R.T. is a mnemonic acronym that serves as a guide in establishing and accomplishing potential goals. The ‘S’ stands for specific, use as much detail as possible to narrow your objective. The second letter confirms if your goal is measurable, or how you will track your progress. The ‘A’ ensures your objective is achievable, making sure you can accomplish it in a reasonable time frame. Next, ask yourself if it is relevant to your long-term vision. Lastly, the ‘T’ stands for time-based, set a realistic but ambitious date to accomplish your goal.

As Lieutenant Governor, I frequently establish SMART goals to keep myself accountable and moving forward, one of which includes starting or reactivating at least two clubs by the end of my term. I’ll track my progress by identifying which step in the chartering club process I am currently on, and I have set a reasonable time frame for myself to accomplish this goal. Another objective involves increasing my division’s membership by at least 30% by promoting on social media, working closely with existing clubs, and chartering new ones. Always make sure your goals are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-based to put you on the right path toward success.
