  • 3. 1. SPECIFY THE CHALLENGE  Define exactly what you think the challenge is and what you want as an outcome  Be as specific as possible - how does it look? What does it sound like? What does it feel like? Does it make sense?  Use open questions, beginning with – what, how, when, where.  What are the ‘Causes’ and what are the Effects’?  Who do I want to be so that I can achieve what I want? 2. IDENTIFY THE ACTIONS YOU WILL TAKE.  Identify your driver – Pain or pleasure?  Think ‘CONSEQUENCES’ - Create ‘What if’ statements followed by ‘then I will do’  Create your ‘Forward Action Plan’. 3. TEST THE POTENTIAL DECISIONS BY LISTENING.  Listen to yourself – does it feel right, look right, sound right and does it make sense? – BEWARE the ‘Gremlin!’  Listen to others – do your research, what are their views? BEWARE of their agendas – changing what you do impacts on others! 4. DECIDE TO TAKE ACTION! …..NOW……  Make a bold action statement – Make it SMART  Yes I am going to do…………………………………………………. NOW (build in a time frame). 5. BEFORE YOU LEAP – PLAN IT!  Use Project Management tools, lists, mind maps, flow charts, etc. Remember: ‘Failing to plan is planning to fail – John Wooden’ 6. DO IT – commit yourself. 7. DID IT WORK?  Review what happened – did you get the results you wanted/expected? Did anything happen that surprised you? What will you do differently the next time? What will you repeat?  Now go back to number 1 and start again.
