Action Plan: How to

Here we are! Here’s what you’ve been waiting for. How do you make an action plan? Details on how to make one and how it’ll work for your set goals will be discussed in this article.

Alright, let’s get on with it.

Basically, since it’s an action plan, this will be filled with items that you will do to set your goals and objectives into motion. So the first thing that you will have to focus on doing is to find out what are the tasks that need to be completed to achieve your goal. What are the steps that you need to take? Write them all down in chronological order and make sure to be specific. To make it easier, list down the major stages or chapters that need to be covered then focus on writing the necessary steps for each stage. Once done with that, next, write a schedule beside each item. This would be the date and time you’d like to have completed the tasks. And then, that’s it! It’s that simple. All that’s left to do now is to conduct a quick review of the action plan you made so that you can see if there’s anything you’d like to modify. Make the changes if there are any and then you’re done and ready to start achieving goals!

Action Plan for Goal Setting

Action Plan for Goal Setting

One of the things that make goal setting successful is making an action plan. It’s basically a list of things you need to do to achieve your goal. These items each have a corresponding schedule of when you’re going to do it. The reason why it’s important to do this is because it will help in giving you that push to action. Goals and objectives cannot be achieved if there’s no action and creating a schedule will give you that because then you’d have no other choice but to stick to your schedule else it would’ve been useless to have spent your time creating one. To find out how to make an action plan for your set goals, tune in next time.

Goal Setting: Why

Goal Setting: Why

Why would you want to set goals? Setting goals has a big effect to your life. Whether it be personal, life, or career goals, giving yourself a target helps give you an idea of what you’re going to do with your life. You’ll be able to know which decisions to make and which path to take whenever you end up in crossroads. By giving yourself an objective, you give purpose as well as direction to your life. Imagine what life would be like if you didn’t have goals and objectives. You’d be wandering aimlessly and you’d have difficulty deciding what to do and what to aim for.

So, if you’re feeling a bit lost lately, perhaps this is what you need, a goal. What are you waiting for? Start thinking about what you want with your life in the next five to ten years and start goal setting.

Procrastination in Goal Setting

How do you manage your time doing all the regular things that you do on a daily basis in addition to the bonus tasks for your set goals? This is especially hard if you are one who is easily distracted. Hence, you end up spending more time battling procrastination than actually getting things done. So how do you do it?

An advice that was previously mentioned in this blog was to spend some time doing that thing that you do for procrastination and then do all your tasks after that. Well, it works for me sometimes but other times it doesn’t. Now what? There’s another method. Relax. You could give yourself a time limit to do these unnecessary activities. The most you can give it is an hour and make sure to set an alarm for it so you can keep track of your time. Then, after that, don’t ever, and I mean EVER, go back to doing that procrastination activity until you’ve actually finished your goals and objectives for the day.

It will be difficult to perfectly stick to your time limit the first time you do this, but that’s okay. That’s a normal reaction. So chill and give it a second, third, fourth, even a fifth chance. If that still doesn’t work, check out the next article for another tip on the ever strong enemy of goal setting, procrastination. 😉

Learning in Goal Setting

Another thing that you learn in goal setting is organizing. You learn to organize things at the start of the process where you are going to decide and pick your goals and objectives. You also learn it all throughout the process. You organize your thoughts, you organize your schedule and the things that you need to do, you organize which things are important and not, and finally, you organize your life by setting a schedule and following it to keep track of your goals.

Learning in Goal Setting

There are so many thing that you can learn from goal setting and along with it is learning about your set goals. That is, if you were able to achieve this certain goal, then you will have learned something about it like what to do to achieve it as well as what not to do to avoid problems.

In essence, you learn different things in goal setting because the goals you set are different too. In order to properly recognize that you did learn something you just have to be more particular about exactly how you were before and how you were after achieving the goal. The difference is what you learned.

Second, plan for a new goal. Just because you failed doesn’t mean you can’t take on a new goal again. Also, you could pursue your present goal again but tackle it differently so that you won’t make the same mistake. Make sure to have a clear idea and understanding of your goals and objectives for each dream so that you won’t lose track of what you need to do.
