Final Answer :
Explanation :
The goal is not measurable because there is no clear way to assess whether or not the client has actually improved their time spent engaging in enjoyable activities. A more specific goal might be "Increase engagement in enjoyable activities by 30 minutes per week" which would be measurable and allow for progress to be tracked.
