Recently, a lot of my “students” have told me they CAN’T set objectives since whatever is altering and they aren’t sure what tomorrow holds. Changing economies is exactly WHY we need to set objectives!
To begin thinking about goals, show for a minute on this quote by Diane Scharf Hunt …” Goals are dreams with deadlines.”
And as soon as we understand our dreams, we require to record them into particular, written and quantifiable goals. That is what goal clarity is … having specific, written and quantifiable results that we are working towards.
The following is an objective clearness strengthening process to execute right now … really, RIGHT now. Secure a notepad and pen and make 5 columns on the page for your own Objective Organizer.
1. In the left column compose a minimum of 5 things you wish to occur in the next 60 days. These are outcomes like “Make one new sales consultation each work day.” or “Close $___ in company each week.” These are your goal statements.
A caution: Review the outcomes for measurability and specificity to see whether you can determine whether it is accomplished or not. If your objective is “More time with my family,” be specific about what that looks/feels like. Does it suggest a specific quantity of time each night or weekend? Specific activities finished together? “I will consume supper with my family 3 times every week,” enables me to understand whether I have actually attained this or not.
2. Look at each statement and recognize the actions required to require to arrive. Write 2-3 actions that will move you toward each result in the 2nd column.
3. Compose a particular time/date when you will take that action in the 3rd column. Is it every day? Week? How often? A date is another checkpoint on the road to success.
Next, identify your benefit for completing those actions or the goal. Believe through the ADVANTAGE of finishing the action that leads you to the goal or result. Compose these in the Fourth column.

5. And in the 5th column write the name of a stakeholder for this goal or result. A stakeholder is somebody who will appreciate this outcome – it may be a supervisor, a partner, a coworker, a buddy. You might have different stakeholders for each goal.
