Make learning Black History a S.M.A.R.T. Goal
Make Learning Black History beyond February a S.M.A.R.T goal. Make a plan. Hold yourself accountable.
The thing is, it's easy to allow ourselves to believe that we don't know how to approach something when it feels different.
But, you do know. Approach it in the same way you would approach any new habit that you want to really stick to. A habit that you want to shift into a goal that becomes a solid belief and way of life.
In many corporate and entrepreneurial settings, the S.M.A.R.T goal approach is a way of making sure that you are setting goals for yourself that are clear, measurable, and have the true possibility of being accomplished.
I'm asking you to Be S.M.A.R.T about your Black History and Diversity and Inclusion goals, as well.
Approach them with the same fervor you would a dream, a passion, a vision that you've placed on a board with glue, marker, and colorful words.
Don't just learn Black History now. Don't just read a few books and move on. Don't just gift yourself the beauty of February. Be S.M.A.R.T.
By the way, I'm so happy to finally share this post. I have been sharing it to coincide with the airing of a Fox News interview that releases soon.
So, what's your S.M.A.R.T. Black History/Inclusion Goal?
