3 Tips To Get Started With Project Goals
Which one are you?
Why Focus on Project Goals?
Goal focussed Project Managers are focused on the outcomes of the project and it is always a challenge to get started with a new way of working, so here are three reasons why you should become Goal Focussed on your projects.
Project Goal Tip #3: Simplification
Being goal focussed will simplify the way you work. You will have less detail in your plans and they will be easier to follow and execute.
Project Goal Tip #2: Sense of Achievement
Achieving goals, especially if they are big ones will bring you an immense sense fulfilment, satisfaction and achievement; achievement drives action, action drives your results.
Project Goal Tip #3: Stress Less
The unconscious mind has a knack of protecting you and by swapping to focus on goals rather than tasks, will give your unconscious mind a chance to help you, keep you out of harms way and that means less stress for you.
One of the biggest lessons that I learned was that by simply believing that your achievement is a foregone conclusion, you actually stand more chance of succeeding.
The Big Problem.
The big problem is that all of the PM training tells you to adopt a deliverable based planning approach, yet it doesn’t really teach you how achieve goals.
How to Get Started With Project Goals
The best way of getting started with a Goals Focussed approach is to have a template that will guide you through the steps.
That’s why I create the Power Goal Template.
You can get a copy of the Power Goal template (and of course it’s absolutely free) from:
p.s It’s only a goal if it’s written down, so please make sure you do, then you stand a fighting chance of succeeding.
