Learn to Set and Achieve Pesonal Goals Using a Special "Process"

There's a "process" that must be followed if you ever want to achieve anything of significance, especially your most important personal goals. The heart of the "process" requires that three significant segments be put in place first, and they are;

 1. Perform a thorough "Situation Analysis" that reveals everything that's important to you, the things you want to change, and everything that could  happen, and probably will.

2. Write a powerful "Strategic Plan" or "Process" that clearly but briefly defines the plan of attack to achieve the goal.

3. Then develop a "Detailed Plan" to support the Strategic Plan, that shows in detail every step you're going to take to accomplish every Strategy.  

Lets look at an example of what we're talking about. Let's use a sporting event, and it applies to all sporting events. Before the game the coach usually has outlined a "process", or strategy, for the team to follow and execute to the best of their abilities. 

This is referred to as the "game plan" and each player has been made aware of this plan well in advance of the actual game. Naturally, the goal in this case is simple, win the game! 

However, once the opposing coach recognizes the other team's game plan, he or she will institute a process or strategy to counteract what they are trying to do. This came be deemed a "roadblock" to stop the success  of whatever the other team is trying to achieve. 

The first coach will then soon recognize what they are doing with their defense, and begin to change his/her original process and devise a different one.

This goes back and forth during the entire game and usually, the coach who comes up with the best processes or strategies for either team will win the game.  

The point here is, the goal will never change but the various "processes' or strategies will have to be, in order to win the game. 

The same hold true for setting personal goals. You must develop a plan and a "process" that is understandable and executable for your goals to be achieved.  

If you run into a roadblock, and you will, do not change the goal! Go to your written plan and change one or two of the "processes" or "strategies" you originally started with! Do this for every obstacle that comes up.

Whether it's a team goal or personal goal, the fact is you must have a written plan to follow or the average goal will fail.

Think about the example above, and imagine if either coach only had one game plan in mind. The one who couldn't break through the roadblocks would invariably lose the game!

Another recent example of the importance of a complete plan is;

In the semifinal game of the world cup 2014, each coach had developed a game-plan for the entire team to follow, and this plan is meticulously explained to all the players.  

However, if the game went to a "shootout", meaning each team would select five different players to take five shots at the goal, defended only by the goalkeeper, he would have an additional "analysis' or "process" to follow. 

This analysis would outline exactly where the coach thought each shooter would attempt to hit the ball. The goalkeeper would memorize this plan before the game, so he would be able to go the side of the goal where they believed the shooter was going to hit the ball.    

The whole point of this particular blog is, if you want to change the important things in your life, then setting and achieving goals is the only way to do it.  

To do it correctly, you must develop a complete plan that mimics everything I've written above, and if you need help to execute this plan, go to our website shown below or email me at
