  14. 14. Goal Setting • To start managing time effectively, you need to set goals. When you know where you're going, you can then figure out what exactly needs to be done, in what order. • People tend to neglect goal setting because it requires time and effort. 14
  15. 15. Goal Setting • What is the difference between a dream and a goal? 15
  16. 16. Writing Goals • Goals give us direction. • A goal is clear and meaningful to the person who has defined it and can be communicated to others when the need arises. • Well defined goals can be your greatest motivator for action. • The goal you identify must be personally meaningful to you and be consistent with your values. • It must be worth every minute you put into it and the benefits you have clearly determined to achieve. • When you know where you are going, you will do your utmost to make sure you get there. And when you are there develop the habit of documenting and celebrating your success.
  17. 17. Goal Setting • Goal setting is the process of deciding what you want to accomplish and devising a plan to achieve the result you desire. • Goal setting is a two part process. For effective goal setting, you need to do more than just decide what you want to do; you also have to work at accomplishing whatever goal you have set for yourself. 17
  18. 18. Goal Setting • Most people know what they want to do but have trouble creating a plan to get there. Goals without action plans are just words. • One way to get over this hurdle is to use a goal setting formula that incorporates a strategy for accomplishing the goal • Goal setting involves establishing specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time- targeted (SMART ) goals 18
  19. 19. Criteria for Writing A Goal-SMARTS • For goals to be successfully achieved, they have to be in a form that is • Specific – detailed and precise understanding of where you are going. Ask Who, What, Where, Why, Which, When • Measurable – You must be able to see step by step progress. Clarify amount or progress in quantifiable terms – How much, How many…. • Attainable – Is this within your capacity to make come true? • Realistic – Is this possible within the resources, ability and challenge available. Eg. Can you fly to the moon in a spacecraft today? No. This is not realistic. Realistic represents the goal you are willing to work towards. • Time Bound – When do you hope to accomplish it? When do you hope to have a result?. Always linked to realistic measures of achievement give you the feelings of success when you accomplish it. • Stretches you. – Does this goal offer the challenge of reaching new heights, doing something that proves you have what it takes for the next level? Does the goal offer challenge to the resources or thinking processes you had in place?
  20. 20. Goal Setting: How to build a road map to your goals: 1. Something you really want, versus something that sounds good. Remember that your goals must be consistent with your values 2. A goal can not contradict any of your other goals Continually strive to eliminate contradictory ideas from your thinking 20
  21. 21. Goal Setting: How to build a road map to your goals: 3. Develop goals in the 6 areas of life: • Family and Home • Financial and Career • Spiritual and Ethical • Physical and Health • Social and Cultural • Mental and Educational 21
  22. 22. Goal Setting: How to build a road map to your goals: Develop goals in the 6 areas of life: • Setting goals in each area of life will ensure a more balanced life as you begin to examine and change the fundamentals of everyday living. • Setting goals in each area of live also helps in eliminating the non-integrated thinking we talked about in the 2nd step • Choose a goal that will help you personally and professionally. 22
  23. 23. Goal Setting: How to build a road map to your goals: Social & Cultural Intellectual & Educational Physical & Health Financial & Career Family & Home Spiritual & Ethical 23
  24. 24. Goal Setting: How to build a road map to your goals: 4. Write your goal in the positive instead of the negative. • Part of the reason why we write down and examine our goals is to create a set of instructions for our subconscious mind to carry out. • The subconscious mind can not determine right from wrong and it does not judge. It carries out instructions. • The more positive instructions you give it, the more positive results you will get. 24
  25. 25. Goal Setting: How to build a road map to your goals: 5. Write your goal out in complete detail. • The more detailed information we give our subconscious mind, the more clearer the final outcome becomes. The more precise the outcome, the more efficient the subconscious mind can become 25
  26. 26. Goal Setting: How to build a road map to your goals: 6. Ensure your goal is high enough. • Shoot for the moon, if you miss you’ll still be in the stars 26
  27. 27. Goal Setting: How to build a road map to your goals: 7. Write down and review your goals • In addition to writing goals down, it is also extremely important to review your goals frequently. • The more focused you are on your goals the more likely you are to accomplish them. • We may need to revise a goal as circumstances and other goals change. If you need to change a goal do not consider it a failure, consider it a victory as you had the insight to realize something was different. 27
  28. 28. Who Is Mentoring You?
  29. 29. Role Model, Coach or Mentor? • Making the right choice will determine your interaction with the individual. • A role model is an individual in which the behaviour is observed from a distance. • A mentor is someone that the individual works with on a fairly regular basis. It involves observing the mentor but also includes the opportunity for discussion, evaluation and progress through 2-way communication between the mentor and the mentee. • The individual and their coach on the other hand have a task based relationship. A coach looks at you work and gives you advice on how to improve your results
  30. 30. Who is in your Social Circle?
  31. 31. Barriers to Personal Development • Believing you do not have time • Not understanding the value of development • Believing that experience is the only teacher • Fear of change • No curiosity or thirst for learning • Only respecting information that is immediately useable and believing leadership development is impractical
  32. 32. What are the Barriers to Your Success? • Personal Barriers – Barriers within yourself • Your motivation, education, training, energy, personality characteristics, leadership skills, self-confidence, conflicting values, stress tolerance, etc • Environmental Barriers – Barriers outside of your control • External forces that are out of your control, for example the culture in which you live or the attitudes of leaders in your organization • Conflict Barriers – when two goals compete with each other • Conflict barriers exist when you want to achieve two goals that appear to be in competition or conflict with each other
  33. 33. Prioritising • Prioritizing what needs to be done is important. Without it, you may work very hard, but you won’t be achieving the results you desire because what you are working on is not of strategic importance. • The problem with many “to-do” lists is they are just a collection of things that need to get done. • To work efficiently you need to work on the most important, highest value tasks 33
  34. 34. Prioritising Key Areas of Personal Priorities: • Spiritual life • Family life • Social life • Physical Wellness • Intellectual life • Vocational/Professional life • Financial life 34
  35. 35. Sample of An Annual Plan • Use the answers you gave during the Self-Evaluation Questions and everything you already knew about yourself to develop a list of Areas for Development. • This process helps you identify the goals in this area of life that you want to give immediate attention to and that will bring you the most immediate benefits • Goal setting is the most powerful force you can possess for achieving success in every area of life. Area Goal Actions Output/Verifiable Indicator Deadline and Review Dates Evaluation of Progress Spiritual Financial Family Career Physical and Wellbeing Personal Development
  36. 36. Managing time thieves Examples of Time thieves • Telephone • E-mail, Internet and Social Media • Interruptions • Your social circles • Self inflicted • Procrastination • Being over-available
  37. 37. Conclusion • You should always have a plan that is broken down to yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily goals. There should be some room for flexibility, but it will help you stay focused. • Time management is self management, so start by identifying your time wasters.
  38. 38. On which level of existence are you? Survival, Success or Significance? What are you going to Stop, Start & Continue?
