Having Time on Your Side
Clarity brings accomplishment
One of the most important things you can do to effectively manage your day, week, month or year is to get clear on what it is you want to achieve. When you lose track of your goals or fail to plan appropriately, you end up spinning in circles and nothing gets accomplished. The clearer you are on your goals, the better results you will get. Make sure your goals are personal to you and not part of someone else's expectations. You will be far more motivated to achieve success when you are working towards something that really matters to you.
Goal setting leads to success
Goals are best visualized, worked on, and completed when articulated with the written word. As a motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar says, "Written goals transform you from a wandering generality into a meaningful specific." By writing your goals, breaking them down into manageable tasks, and constantly keeping focused on the bigger picture, you'll gain clarity and insight that will help you move forward on your action plan. Once you try this, you will be amazed at the results. It really does work--as long as you do the legwork and keep the momentum going!
Goal setting principles Be creative when writing your goals and have fun with the process.
Prioritizing your daily goals is one of the most important things that need to happen so you can accomplish more in less time. This single action step has saved individuals and large companies thousands of dollars and made them more efficient in many ways.
One example of this is a client I've worked with who started out just seeing all their goals listed on a schedule each day. The complaint was, "I have too many things to do each day and not enough time to get it all done." We started analyzing why this was happening. Then I put a process in place so my client would plan and prioritize each day. The results were astounding. This person was not only able to get more done but this also allowed him more time with his family every day.
Action steps for prioritizing
Seeing daily results
Do something everyday that moves you towards your desired goals.
There's an old saying of 'by the yard, it's hard, but inch by inch, anything's a cinch'. It's the tasks within the project are what gets the job done. When you review your goals, projects and tasks, and put them in priority order, you will be clear and focused on the tasks at hand while strategically moving towards your ideal results.
At the end of the day, review your list and monitor how you did. You'll see how much more you'll achieve by developing these simple, daily habits.
Setting your goals INCREASES:
Start the process now! Good luck with getting more done in less time.
