Create A Success Strategy By Planning Your Progress.......




Planning 

Your 

Progress






I thought that today I would take a look at something that may seem totally counter-intuitive as a way to help you plan your progress with any task.

It is something that is actually very simple but it is surprising how many people do not do it.

The method is to start your planning at the end - look at what it is you want to achieve, the object that you want to have, or the state you wish to attain

As yourself "what do I have to do to achieve this?" - write down all of your answers.  Do not worry about how ridiculous,odd, far fetched or crazy they may seem just write them down because all thoughts are useful.

Let us work through a simple example

Making a cup of tea

boil water, get a teapot, find the kettle, get up off your seat, head to the kitchen, put a teabag (or tea leaves) into the pot, phone a food delivery service and while you are at it order a burger or a pizza, get milk, buy a cow, buy / rent a field, sugar, a cup (or mug), get water, get a spoon, light gas or turn on power, pour into cup, fill kettle.

By now you are probably aware that some of those comments are just plain ridiculous and you can start to strike them out of the list so that the list you end up with would probably look like this:- 

boil water, get a teapot, find the kettle, get up off your seat, head to the kitchen, put a teabag (or tea leaves) into the pot, get milk, sugar, a cup (or mug), get water, get a spoon, light gas, turn on power, pour into cup, fill kettle.

Having now got your whittled down list you can then set about putting the items in order (which I am sure you don't need me to do)

When you have worked all of that out you will have all the steps necessary to make a cup of tea.

By using this method you are guided to think of all the individual processes involved in reaching your goal.  This way you will have a map of the steps that you need to take.

Every time you need to do a task if you use this method you will be able to follow the map rather than just blindly setting off without a clue how you are going to get to where you want to be.
