    The well written goals include writing the goals in positive terms. Writing in a positive term rather than a negative term can help the brain remain positive in pursuit of the goal. Another characteristic is to write a goal one truly wants in a detailed manner. To write a goal that sounds good is nice, but one has to be willing to do the work to reach a goal.

A well written goal provides details and in some cases alternatives to reach the goals when the original plan does not seem to be working. (http://www.topachievement.com/goalsetting/index.html ) ...
