WORKING SMART – 4

a picture of setting target by WORKING SMART - goal setting

 

FACTORS THAT HINDER GOALS

What we don’t measure, we can’t manage/grow

According to Forbes while the process of goal setting is important because it helps unearth and identify what’s truly important to you, pursuing your goals is the real money-maker (literally and figuratively) because it builds self-efficacy; but there are some factors that can hinder you goals which includes the following.

  • Procrastination
  • Indiscipline
  • Low self esteem

 

10 tips on setting goals

  1. Your goals must be ambitious but achievable
  2. Make a list of your goals
  3. Discuss your goals with your partner
  4. Ensure that you set your own goals
  5. Set deadlines for each goals
  6. Carry with you your list of goals
  7. Be flexible when planning your goals
  8. Give up things that are barriers to your goals
  9. Be careful with whom you share your goals
  10. Start to visualize your goals

 

Acting on your goals

It is important to begin with your overall long-term goal and then break it down into a series of smaller goals.  Take each smaller goal in turn and brainstorm all the possible actions you will need to take to achieve each goal

Getting started in setting goals – Action point

  1. Begin by writing a list of your overall goals:  be it career, health, education, family etc.
  2. Break the list down into smaller sub-goals, making sure they are achievable and measurable
  3. Brainstorm, in no particular order, all the things that will need to happen for the goal to be achieved
  4. Put these into logical order, or sequence
  5. Put together your plan of action, along with measurable timelines
  6. Begin acting on your plan. Schedule time into your diary to make sure things happen
  7. Amend the plan as circumstances change
  8. Keep others informed of your progress
  9. Reward yourself as the plan starts to become a reality

 

On acting on your goals

  • Try to visualize the outcome you are looking to achieve. How will it make you feel?
  • Think about how will you feel if nothing changes
  • Begin working on your goals now
  • Do not let other people’s negative thinking put you off
  • Think positive
  • Reward yourself when you achieve your goals

 

Goal – What an Individual is Trying to Accomplish?

  • Directing one’s attention
  • Regulating one’s effort
  • Increasing one’s persistence
  • Encouraging the development of goal-attainment strategies or action plans

 

WAYS TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL (1/3)

Transform your passion into career

Write out a list of your top five passions in life. Study this list to determine which one passion solves a need in the marketplace. Then transform that specific passion into your own business and you will have discovered the key to creating your own destiny

“DO WHAT YOU LOVE AND THE MONEY WILL FOLLOW”

Visualize your dreams

Only those who can see the invisible can achieve the impossible. Belief in your vision is the key to creating your own destiny. Larry Olsen said, “First we must taste our vision, touch our vision, feel our vision, emotionalize our vision, and finally own our vision”

Once we learn to own our vision, the “how” of making it happen slowly presents itself?”

Set huge goals

What are your boldest goals in life? Whether you realize it or not, you have the ability to choose your destiny based on the decisions you make and the actions you take. We all have the ability to pre-determine our destination in advance simply by scripting our lives in the form of writing down our goals for how we desire our lives to be.

 

WAYS TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL (2/3)

Put family ahead of work

Your family is more important than the world. Family is the only stabilizing force that helps you to navigate through uncertain financial times. No one ever found himself on his deathbed wishing he had spent more time at the office away from his family.”

Build Real Wealth through Self-Education

There is a huge difference between “book smarts” and “street smarts.” Getting a college education is extremely important, but your education should not stop after college. Jim Rohn said, “Formal education will earn you a living, but self-education will earn you afortune!”

Overcome Your Fears

Only two things in life can hold you back from your destiny: your fears and your self-limiting beliefs. David Joseph Schwartz said, “Do what you fear and your fears will disappear,” and the Reverend Dick Gregory said, “Fear and God do not occupy the same space.

 

WAYS TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL (3/3)

Execute your plan daily

Your actions equal your results, so the best way to pursue your destiny is to do something every single day for the rest of your life to pursue your goals. John Addison said, “I will do today what others won’t so I will have tomorrow what others don’t.”

Become an Entrepreneur

Sooner or later, all jobs come to an end. Therefore, keep your day job while you simultaneously build your business. Your day job becomes the seed money to support your business. When you are employed working for “the Man,” you help someone else to create his or her destiny, not yours. The only way to earn your true worth is by becoming an entrepreneur

Focus on Your Health and Nutrition

Wealth without health is not worth its weight in gold. If you are truly to achieve your destiny, you need to focus as equally on your health goals as your wealth goals. Howard Howell said, “You must either diet or die.”

WORKING SMART – 2

a picture of setting target by WORKING SMART - goal setting

 

GOALS – TIMELINE

What we don’t measure, we can’t manage/grow

From the earlier post we discussed about goal setting to getting, we will continue from there with setting goal timeline which include the following:

Short-term goals

Our short-term goals tells us what we should be doing this week, or this month to achieve our short-term objectives. In business this is important as this can influence issues such as orders received, production targets met, accounts produced and cash inflow maintenance that are required for the business to function on a day-to-day basis.

A picture of goals timelineMedium-term goals

By looking at medium-term we are released from the urgent day-to-day stuff and can begin to plan without having a worry about short-term issues. Medium-term goals are a stepping stone to the longer-term stuff with more time to think and plan.

 

Long-term goals

In long-term we need to have a vision of future: where we are going on the long journey ahead? Where do we see ourselves in 10, 15 or 20 years time?.

 

AREAS OF GOALS TO LOOK AT

Financial Goals

  • Earn certain amount of money in a specified time
  • Get rid of debt
  • Set up an investment

Social Goals

  • Develop something significant
  • Charity
  • Religious
  • Environmental

Educational Goals

  • Earn credits towards a degree
  • Take adult education classes
  • Keep updating your skills

Health Goals

  • Join health club
  • Have annual checkup
  • Quit smoking
  • Eat nutritious food

Family Goals

  • Meet your relatives
  • Make new friends
  • Find people who can help you to reach your goal

Career Goals

  • Get a promotion
  • Reach certain professional level
  • Learn a new job skill
  • Complete project in time

 

Start with some dreams – The 5 ‘Ds’ factor

Drive

  • Think about what really fires you up, what motivates you?
  • What is it that gives you energy and a great sense of personal fulfillment?
  • What do you care deeply about?

Dream

  • What have you always wanted to do?
  • Where do you see yourself in a year’s time?
  • Dream more dreams

Develop

  • What natural skills, abilities or talents do you have that could develop further?

Discuss

  • Chat through the answers to some of these questions with friends
  • Are you being honest or completely unrealistic about yourself
  • Are there seeds of some possibilities that could become real?

Desire

  • It will help you greatly if you can set clear and positive goals
  • You can then breakdown these goals into more immediate aims
  • Think about what next steps would be in order to fulfill the goals and aims that you have set for yourself

WORKING SMART – 1

a picture of setting target by WORKING SMART - goal setting

Goal Setting to Getting

What we don’t measure, we can’t manage/grow

 

INTRODUCTION

Research at Yale University – resulted into the following outcomes:

  • Researchers ask members of class of 1953 if they have specific, written, long-term goals.
  • Only 3% did.
  • 20 years later, the researchers contacted the same graduates to see what happened to them.
  • The 3% with goals had lives there were measurable better than the 97% without goals.
  • The 3% who have set specific goals had accumulated more personal wealth then the other 97% put together.

 

WORKING SMART - goal settingWhat is goal? – If you don’t know where you are going, you’re likely to wind up somewhere else”

Goal is what an individual is trying to accomplish through his or her behavior and actions or the purpose towards which an endeavor is directed; an end; an objective.

 

What is goal setting?

– A theory that focuses on identifying the types of goals that are most effective in producing high levels of motivation and performance and why goals have these effects.

– Goal setting in broad terms is the process of deciding on something you want, planning how to get it, and then working towards the objective.

– Goal setting is not wishing or dreaming. It is something that is progressively worked towards. Goal setting is a process; it is not something that decided on a whim.

 

IMPORTANCE OF GOAL SETTING

Why is it so important to set goals?

Every organization, non-profit and for profit firm, has both an overall mission statement, and “corporate” vision statement that defines and drives what the purpose and objectives of the organization is to do. But along with a mission and vision statement, the organization needs to develop and implement sound goals and objectives for achievement. Without goals to achieve, you’re just like a boat on the open ocean without a sail, to be tossed and carried about at will.

  • Achieve more in your life-time
  • Improve overall performance in your life
  • Increase the motivation to achieve most out of life
  • Increase your pride and self-satisfaction
  • Improve self confidence
  • Helps to eliminate the attitudes that holds you back and cause unhappiness

 

Perils of not setting any goals

A goal is a desired result a person or an organization envisions plans and commits to achieve.  It is the desired end-point in some sort of assumed development. Goals are what motivate us to push ourselves to grow and move forward in life.

The problem is that many people live without having any goals and there are some dangers in living this way.

  • We can become passive.
  • It is impossible to do any real evaluation.
  • We can fall into the trap of doing something just for the sake of doing something
    and it is difficult to state why we are doing this or why we are not.
  • We lose motivation because we are not challenged.
  • It becomes easy to settle for a maintenance mode instead of development mode
  • It is easy not to plan ahead.
  • The emphasis becomes upon activity rather than output

MANAGING CHANGE IN THE WORKPLACE AS YOU PREPARE FOR 2020

MANAGING CHANGE IN THE WORKPLACE AS YOU PREPARE FOR 2020
Change they say is constant but adapting to change particularly in the workplace is sometimes a herculean task. People tend to love living in the same status quo. Just like the Japanese frog story, people will naturally prefer to remain in their comfort zone.
Change Management is a term used to refer to the introduction of new processes in an organization, or the management of people who are experiencing change. It is the discipline that guides how we prepare, equip and support individuals to successfully adopt change in order to drive organizational success and outcomes.
In a layman’s definition is “the coordination of a structured period of transition from situation A to situation B in order to achieve lasting change within an organization.

There are three Levels of Change Management

  • Individual Change Management
This requires understanding how people experience change and what they need to change successfully.  It also requires knowing what will help people make a successful transition: what message do people need to hear, when and from whom, when the optimal time to teach someone a new skill is, how to coach people to demonstrate new behaviors, and what makes changes stick in someone’s work.

  • Organizational/Initiative Change Management
This provides us with the steps and actions to take at the project level to support the hundreds who are impacted by a project.
OCM involves first identifying the groups and people who will need to change as the result of the project, what ways they will need to change and then creating a customized plan for ensuring impacted employees receive the awareness, leadership, coaching and training they need in order to change successfully.
Driving successful individual transitions should be the central focus of the activities in organizational change management.

  • Enterprise Change Management Capability
This means effective change management is embedded into your organization’s roles, structures, processes, projects and leadership competencies. Change management processes are consistently and effectively applied to initiatives, leaders have the skills to guide their team through change, and employees know what to ask for in order to be successful.

The end result of an enterprise change management capability is that individuals embrace change more quickly and effectively, and organizations are able to respond quickly to market changes, embrace strategic initiatives, and adopt new technology more quickly with less productivity impact.
