SMART can have different meanings. A can stand for “Achievable” or “Ambitious” and R can stand for “Relevant” or “Realistic”… there are different versions of the SMART acronym. By setting an ambitious objective that is possible to achieve, our motivation feels interested by the challenge and at the same time we are forced to think creatively about different ways to achieve the goal.
Creative Ambition can refer also to something different: the ambition to think creatively or innovate. This could be expressed in different terms such as “generating 10 ideas daily”, “designing something new every month”, etc. Creativity can be measured in different ways and by making it Measurable (sMart) we are able to manage it.
It is very useful to be able to change our habits as in the long term, these will help in shaping our destiny. Developing creative habits will contribute to a continuous innovation. As somebody said:
“Watch your thoughts, they become words;
watch your words, they become actions;
watch your actions, they become habits;
watch your habits, they become character;
watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
