Goals get done when we are motivated to take action

  • We are motivated when we care passionately about something

5. Dreams
Know your WHY
Questions to ask:

  • What would you do if you knew you couldnt fail?

6. What would you do if money was no object? (such as winning the lottery) 7. What do you want your friends & family to say about you at your funeral?Knowing why you want to achieve your goals will give you motivation.
With a big enough WHY we can overcome many obstacles (think of what Jane Tomlinson overcame to raise money for cancer research)
Obstacles are those frightful things you see
when you take your eye off the goal

8. Dreams - Visualisation
Visualisation

  • Studies show that those who just focussed their visualising on their perfect outcome and what it will be like when they achieved their goal were LESS likely to achieve the goal.

So...

  • Visualise how you will take the practical steps that move you towards your goal rather than fantasizing about the end goal

9. Balance the benefits of achieving the goal with a realistic assessment of the problems you might encounter along the way 10. Visualisation has been shown to be about 20% more effective if you visualise yourself as others see you (adopt a third person perspective) 11. Create a dream chart to remind you of your dreams but only use it when you are feeling positive about your goal (e.g. After you have successfully achieved one of your sub-goals). Using it when you are discouraged can lead you to believe that the goal is unobtainable and encourage you to give upstevescholey@actioncoach.com

12. Goals

  • Goals are dreams with deadlines.

13. To have a balanced life we need to have goals in each of the areas of our life (e.g. Father, husband, investor, entrepreneur, manager) 14. Goals should be written and shared (tell a friend & youre more likely to succeed) 15. Goals should be stated as concrete not abstract (e.g run 10k rather than get fit)Foreach goal identify in writing:

  • The benefits of achieving the goal

16. The obstacles you are likely to face 17. How you will overcome the obstacles 18. How you will know when you have achieved the goal (what will you see, feel, experience etc) 19. The reward you will get for achieving the overall goal 20. The rewards you will get for completing each step along the way stevescholey@actioncoach.com

  • Can you answer the six Ws Who, What, Where, When, Why, Which

  • Ask:How much? How many? How will I know when Ive finished?

  • Does the goal fit with your values? Does it fit with your Identity?

22. Are you worthy of this goal? Realistic

  • Do you have the resources or can you access them to achieve the goal?

23. Plan
People tend not to wander around and then suddenly
find themselves at the top of Mount Everest
ZigZiglar

  • Dreams arethe WHY, Goals are the WHAT and Plans are the HOW

24. Plans need to be short-term and practical. Detailed quarterly plans work best. 25. Set a theme for the quarter and make sure everyone knows what they need to do to help achieve the quarterly goal. 26. Break every goal down into short action steps.Action steps shouldideally take 1 hour or less to complete 27. Review your plan regularlyPlans are nothing; planning is everything Dwight D. Eisenhower

34. Action - Tips
Avoiding procrastination

  • Just get started!

35. Acknowledge that you probably wont feel more like it tomorrow! 36. Accept that you dont have to feel like it to do it! 37. Will power (self regulation) is like a muscle, it is easily fatigued but it can be developed 38. Create Implementation Intentions by deciding in advance what you will do in the situations where you know you will be tempted to put things off.E.g. Iwill switch off my phone, email & internet before sitting down to start the report 39. If we are not completely sure of the very next step we need to take we are likely to do nothing.Break tasks into the smallest pieces possible. 40. Get someone to hold you accountablestevescholey@actioncoach.com
