Turning goals into objectives
Break goals down into categories then into individual items
Specific – make sure there is an actual “thing” to do
Measured – you should be able to determine success or not
Attainable – can you actually do this thing
Relevant – is this something that matters
Timed – there should be a deadline
Write it down
Show it somebody
Building the plan
Set a high level vision of where you want to be in 1, 3, 5
Define areas that are appropriate for your vision
Work out objectives that will help you improve in
Set review periods
“The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem
to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year”
-John Foster Dulles
Reflect and Review
Revisit plan every few months or after a target date
Determine whether you have met your objectives
Note any additional steps or actions you need to take
Update plan with new objectives, timelines or
Check existing objectives still relevant
