  • EXERCISE
    What is your ultimate goal to be achieved in the next 5 years?
    1 goal can have multiple objectives
  • Thanks to Steve Clark for the illustration – it shows that you plan is a working document!
  • Probably all aware of the meaning of SMART targets – but there is a difference between Knowing and Owning
  • EXERCISE - something like a mind-map
    Identify 1 objective that is necessary to achieve your 5 year goal
    Write the objective on a sticky note
    Stick it at the top of a piece of paper

    Why Post-It Notes? – really easy to move around
  • EXERCISE
    Identify methods to achieve your objective
    Write each method on a separate sticky note (these are your strategies)
    Stick them underneath your objective and draw connecting lines / arrows
  • EXERCISE
    Identify 2 actions necessary to achieve your strategy
    Write each action on a sticky note
    Stick the actions under the strategies and draw connecting lines / arrows
  • Knowing when to do is more pressing then knowing what to do!
    That’s where prioritisation come in

    Strategy – contributes to the overall objective, e.g., blogging as a marketing strategy
    Quick Win – things that can be done quickly and easily right away, e.g., making a phone call, deciding to do / not to do something
    Impact – things that will have the most significant impact most quickly, e.g., personal image (haircut!), email signatire
