Clarity + Action Plan = Executive Success

“Think of a ship leaving a harbor. And think of it with the complete voyage mapped out and planned. The captain and crew know exactly where the ship is going and how long it will take – it has a definite goal. And 9,999 times out of 10,000, it will get there… It’s the same with a human being.” – Earl Nightingale, Author, The Strangest Secret
How clear is YOUR sense of DIRECTION for where you want to go, what you want to achieve, and the value you’d like to deliver to your customers, clients, and employer over the next 30 days? 90 days? Over the next year?
CLARITY is key — knowing where you want to go and what you want to accomplish — but equally important is the quality of the PLAN for HOW you’ll get there.
Consider your Top 3 goals for the next 30 days — goals that will really make a difference in your life or in your work if you achieve them, and ask yourself these questions:
Are these top 3 goals written down and clearly stated, i.e., SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-based)?
Are these goals in a place where you can SEE them throughout the day?
Do you have a well-thought-out Action Plan for how you’ll achieve each goal? Is that Action Plan written down?
Do you review your Action Plans on a daily basis?
Do you have a “very next action” noted on your daily calendar for each of the Action Plans?
Do you have time blocked out on your calendar to achieve your “very next actions”?
Do you monitor your progress against your key goals on a daily basis?
Follow the above guidelines and it’s highly likely you’ll be celebrating the success of achieving these key goals 30 days from now.
All the best,
