Goals & Objectives

Goals & Objectives

Have you ever set yourself a goal? Or a set of objectives to enable you to reach your goal?

It's an important action step when you have a burning ambition, a vision or a dream, that you'd like to see become reality!

How do you begin? Well, by starting at the very beginning, and writing as specifically as you can, what your goal consists of, as well as bringing the future forward. Confused?

Write your goal in the present tense, as if you have already achieve it. For example....

"It is now December 2010 and I am enjoying my success as a published author of The BIG Kiddies Club non-fiction hardback book, courtesy of Hay House publishers"

THIS provides a 'feeling', an emotion that is yours in advance of achieving your goal. It is a teaser and a reason to set your objectives so your goal is realised on time!

Commonly known as 'Project Management' this process exists everywhere that a project, a goal, a vision or a mission is in hand. Your plan of action, will work from the date you set out to achieve your goal, backward to the present day.

The Objectives each have an Aim, which is to reach a certain milestone or successful endeavour.

So, if I am to become a published author in December 2010, I must anticipate what work needs to be done, the quantity of time each task will take, when I need to complete each task and in which order each task will need to be prioritised, in order for the whole project to come together at the time I have set.

The milestones are the points at which I can make changes based on what I have accomplished. The date can always be moved if it is a personal goal. If it is a contrctual goal, then more effort will need to be built into the action steps you have planned.

So, in summary....

  1. Set a specific goal in the future
  2. Research and draw up a list of objectives which will enable you to reach this goal
  3. Summarise what your objectives aim to accomplish
  4. Create a timetable or schedule of events clearly showing each milestone
  5. Ascertain how much time each action step will take
  6. Insert each aim and objective into the timeline
  7. Begin your quest immediately
  8. Check your milestones to see if you are on target
  9. Make changes to your timetable adjusting the action steps where necessary, until you reach your goal
  10. When you reach your goal, CELEBRATE!!!!! You have succeeded and treats are now yours!

I hope this helps you to 'manage' the journey across the stepping stones of your life.

Choosing the right path, based on your passions and skills, will determine how successful you are in life and whether you accomplish the dreams you have dreamed.....or not!

Wishing you all the very best that life has to offer, with the best tools that can be accessed!

Shoot that goal home!!!!!!!

Clarity & Focus

Clarity & Focus

As a published author (online), writer and copywriter, I require a certain mindset. I must be focused and clear about my intention for my piece of work. I do not need to know exactly what to write, just the scenario.

When Clarity and Focus are present, the gift is the inspiration!

So,you know where I get my inspiration from now don't you? Me, life, experiences and a clear space for it to present itself. It really is that simple. I guess it's because I love to sit and write that I really do love my gift. I know that some people really dislike the whole process and act of writing!

That's where I come in, because I can do it for them!

My Client base comprises busy people who have little time to spend on pouring their hearts out onto paper, so I simply chat to them and find out what they want to say, get a brief and get started!

We can all write, yet how effective are we at communicating our vision to others? Sometimes we don't know how to express it - or even what it is!! Clarity and Focus! ......Two of my best friends indeed!

Are you still furrowing your brow? Need a little more help?

Have you thought about what it is you truly desire in life? Do you know where you are headed? Or is your head lowered as you go about your day? It does help if you look directly in the path of your chosen lifestyle and head towards it, step into it, wear it and feel it, as if it were present NOW!

This is one method of 'Visualising Your Dream'. If you VYDeo your chosen lifestyle in your mind's eye, so that your emotions are in touch with the splendour of your dream, THIS is when your dream has an awesome chance to come  true!

It really does work too! need your best friends CLARITY and FOCUS to begin with!

NOW THIS makes sense doesn't it?!!!

I hope this info has been helpful to you. If so, please do send me some feedback. I love hearing about people's lightbulb moments, having experienced a few myself.

If I can light up your life, I am lighting up my own too! ......Like stars, we twinkle and shine brightly so others can look up and see their beauty!

Goodnight. xx
