SEVEN STEPS FOR ACHIEVING GOALS


SEVEN STEPS FOR ACHIEVING GOALS


STEP-1 : Decide exactly what you want. Either decide for yourself or sit down with your boss and discuss your goals and objectives until you are crystal clear about is expected of you and in what order of priority. It is amazing how many people are working away, day after day, on low-value tasks because they have not has this critical discussion with their managers. 

One of the very worst uses of time is to do
something very well that need not be done at all.  

Stephan Covey says, “Before you begin scrambling up the ladder of success, make sure that it is leaning against the right building.” 

STEP-2 : Write it down. Think on paper. When you write down a goal, you crystallize it and gave it tangible form. You create something that you can touch and see. On the other hand, a goal or objective that is not in writing is merely a wish or a fantasy. It has no energy behind it. Unwritten goals lead to confusion, vagueness, misdirection, and numerous mistakes.  

STEP-3 : Set a deadline on your goal; set sub deadlines if necessary. A goal or decision without a deadline has no urgency. It has no real beginning or end. Without a definite deadline accompanied by the assignment or acceptance of specific responsibilities for completion, you will naturally procrastinate and get very little done.  

STEP-4 : Make a list of everything that you can think of that you are going to have to do to achieving your goal. As you think of new activities, add them to your list. Keep building your list until it is complete. A list gives you a visual picture of the larger task or objective. It gives you a track to run on. It dramatically increases the likelihood that you will achieve your goal as you have defined it and on schedule.  

STEP-5 : Organize the list into a plan. Organize your list by priority and sequence. Take a few minutes to decide what you need to do first and what you can do later. Decide what has to be done before something else and what needs to be done afterward. Even better, layout your plan visually in the form of series of boxes, circles on a sheet of paper, with lines and arrows showing the relationship of each task to each other task. You will be amazed at how much easier it is to achieve your goal when you break it down into individual tasks.  

With a written goal and an organized plan of action, you will be far more productive and efficient than people who are carrying their goals around in their minds.  

STEP-6 : Take action on your plan immediately. Do something. Do anything. An average plan vigorously executed is far better than a brilliant plan on which nothing is done. For you to achieve any kind of success, execution is everything.            

STEP-7 : Resolve to do something every single day that moves you towards your major goal. Build this activity into your daily schedule. You may decide to read a specific number of pages on a key subject. You may call on a specific number of customers or prospects. You may engage in a specific period of physical exercise. You may learn a certain number of new words in foreign language. Whatever it is, you must never miss a day. 

Keep pushing forward. Once you start moving, keep moving. Don’t stop. This decision, this discipline alone can dramatically increase your speed of goal accomplishment and boost your personal productivity.  

Power of written goals :  

Clear written goals have a wonderful effect on your thinking. They motivate you and galvanize you into action. They stimulate your creativity, release your energy, and help you to overcome procrastination as much as any other factor. 

Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement. The bigger goals and clearer they are, the more excited you become about  achieving them. The more you think about your goals, the greater become your inner drive and desire to accomplish them.  

Think about your goals and review them daily. Every morning when you begin, take action on the most important task you can accomplish to achieve your most important goal at the moment.
