To clearly define your goal statement include What and When.
What is the result or outcome with measurement defined (i.e., closed sales, contracts signed, appointments set, etc). When is the Time/Date to achieve your result or outcome. If you can assign a date right now, great; if not, fill it in later.
Here are a few examples of goal statements that include What and When specifics:
• On 12/31/xx I have twelve contracts signed for $2.25 million of delivered product in January 20xx.
• By 9/1/xx, I exercise for a minimum of thirty minutes, four days a week.
• On 6/30/xx my six-month sales goal of $900,000 is reached.
• On 12/31/xx my annual income is $250,000.
