examples of smart goals for dietitians

This list of 50 examples of SMART goals for dietitians can act as a template to help you come up with goals in each category of your life – personal, wellness, professional, financial and business (if applicable!) 

As an entrepreneur myself, I work with dietitians to help them start and grow their businesses. Working with dietitians every single day, the idea of goal setting comes up all the time.

We are a group of people that help individuals day in and day out set goals in their own lives. But sometimes, we neglect to set goals in our lives. We’re so busy helping others, that sometimes we forget about ourselves.

Does that resonate with you?

I know that it certainly does for me.

Spend some time starting to set goals for yourself by choosing ONE goal within each domain to focus on.
