11 So, how do I set Goals? S – Specific M – Measurable A – Achievable R – Realistic T – Time Bound "Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; Nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude." - Thomas Jefferson

The Big Picture…:

12 The Big Picture… What three things would I like to achieve in the next five years? Make sure your answers are specific and measurable. Where am I today in relation to my three goals, and what actions do I need to take to get me from where I am today to where I want to be? The answer to this question will help you determine what steps you need to take to reach your goal. What is the time frame required in order to complete each action step? Putting time frames for each action step allows you to monitor your progress, and helps to keep you on track "Goals in writing are dreams with deadlines."

How do I begin?:

13 How do I begin? State each goal as a positive statement: Express your goals positively - 'Execute this technique well' is a much better statement than 'Don't repeat this stupid mistake.' Be precise: Set a precise goal, putting in dates, times and amounts so that you can measure achievement. If you do this, you will know exactly when you have achieved the goal, and can take complete satisfaction from having achieved it. Set priorities: When you have several goals, give each a priority. This helps you to avoid feeling overwhelmed by too many goals, and helps to direct your attention to the most important ones.

7 Steps to Goal Setting:

14 7 Steps to Goal Setting Identify your goal by writing it down Set a deadline for the achievement. Put a date on it. List the obstacles to overcome in accomplishing your goal. Identify the people and groups you need to work with to reach your goal. List the skills and knowledge required to reach your goal. What do you need to know? Develop a plan of action to reach your goal. Write down the benefits of achieving your goal. ("What is in it for me?")

Be realistic:

15 Be realistic Set performance goals, not outcome goals: You should take care to set goals over which you have as much control as possible. There is nothing more dispiriting than failing to achieve a personal goal for reasons beyond your control. In business, these could be bad business environments or unexpected effects of government policy. If you base your goals on personal performance, then you can keep control over the achievement of your goals and draw satisfaction from them. Set realistic goals: It is important to set goals that you can achieve. All sorts of people (employers, parents, media, society) can set unrealistic goals for you. They will often do this in ignorance of your own desires and ambitions. Alternatively you may set goals that are too high, because you may not appreciate either the obstacles in the way, or understand quite how much skill you need to develop to achieve a particular level of performance.

The Success Recipe:

16 The Success Recipe Recipe for Success: - Add what you want ( your goal) - Measure correctly (be specific with your goal, be sure it is measurable) - Mix in an action plan ( how you are going to get it) - Combine time frames (when will each action plan be complete) Put the ingredients in step by step. Keep stirring until you can see results - do a little bit every day. Don't be discouraged if it doesn't cook through first time around – we sometimes hit obstacles and roadblocks, find a way around them. Once completed take time to celebrate each action step Enjoy, your goal is achieved. Set another. “Success only breeds a new goal. The golden apple devoured has seeds. It is endless.” - Bette Davis

Thoughts into action:

17 Thoughts into action Consider what information you need that you don’t have. Where u will get it? What could you read? Who could you talk to? What seminars could attend? What are the priorities involved? Which task must be done first? When will different actions takes place? "Goals turned into action plans with time frames can bring you success."
