Well done for recognizing the importance of getting stuff done!
But, how do you move forward
with or without Goals?
How do you get stuff done? Do you set goals, or are you working with intentions?
In my 50th show, with Simon Jordon and Suzy Beaumont, you will hear us talk about the different ways to look at goals. It’s about finding the right approach that works for you.
We are all different, what is motivation for one, is a sharp stick for another.
What Are Your Drivers?
For some people, the BIG HAIRY ASS GOAL (BHAG) is just what they need, it really works for them.
They smash it and line up for the next one.
For others, they just cannot see something that big as a possibility and so it becomes a demotivator, somehow restrictive and a recipe for failure.
That is me to some extent.
What Works For Me
With my big goal hat on, I should be managing a multi-staff marketing agency by now, that is a big stick to beat myself with. There are trappings that go with that vision of my success. You will have heard me speak on these things on the podcast.
Reality check, I cannot say I enjoyed the big company life, so why would I want to create one? Just imagine the administration and paperwork!
My current solution has been to move towards a more inclusive approach. I’m using intuition to guide my progress and that’s very much why the podcast conversation with Lynn Robinson was so appropriate, it was a good call if you missed it.
However, the fact remains….
We Still Need To Get Stuff Done!
It is possible to be successful without goals, but projects must have deadlines, bills need paying and stuff must get done. It all involves planning and execution, for that, I use tools like planners and apps, currently Trello. When I have a bigger project, I use accountability partners or a coach.
In fact, this podcast was only launched in January 2018 with planning and using accountability with a partner. There is nothing like telling someone you will do something to make you get it down.
If You Could Get Something Big Done Within 90 Days,
What Would it be Worth to You?
I have been in business 20 years and I have noticed from my marketing clients that there are times when the good intention is not enough. It takes a velocity of action to make a difference and get results.
Driving with “WILL POWER” alone is not enough.
Will power is a limited resource. At the start of the day when the mind is fresh, it is easy to push through. However, do a few taxing tasks, have a few meetings and conversations and that is it. The brain gets tired and “Will Power” is gone.
There are good physiological reasons for this loss of performance. Our brains only have so much capacity and it needs to be managed, We must choose our priorities.
Turbo Coaching Gets Results.
For years I have used a process with my marketing clients to help them stay focused and be held accountable. It was a technique that I learnt during my coach training, I never gave it a name and the clients would not have known they were being coached.
At the moment for the want of a better name, I am calling it turbo coaching. It takes just 20 minutes. That is enough time to set out your challenge, review the resistance and agree on a strategy with a smart deadline.
