30 Examples of Progress Goals

Progress goals are plans to achieve meaningful steps towards end-goals. In many cases, these are designed to be SMART such that they are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound. Progress goals are the rule as opposed to the exception. For example, a student may have an end-goal of graduating that maps to hundreds of progress goals such as passing a particular exam. The following are illustrative examples of a progress goal.
