The Weekly Wrap Up – First Goal than Plan

Welcome to the weekly wrap up from Jason Bradshaw

The weeks podcasts have included
-    Winning verse Solving Problems.
-    This Is It – live your passion.
-    Focus, Mission & Strategy.
-    Why goal before plan.
-    Winning lotto – why wait?

This week the main theme has been on creating a crystal clear vision of what you want to achieve and then creating a plan to achieve them. Following on from last weeks action I continue to promote that having a bias for action is the number one way to achieve your goals.

Throughout the week we have explored the concept of creating a vision board, a visual representation of what it will look and feel like when you achieve your goals. I shared with you a great free resource

In addition I encouraged you to ACT NOW and find just one thing that you could use to start your vision board. I hope you took the time to find something to et you started on the journey of achieving your goals.

A common question I get asked about vision boards is, “What if my goals change?” The answer to this is a simple – update your vision board. Not only is it perfectly normal to refine you’re your vision and goal as your life experiences change but it will help you achieve your goals. As your clarity level concerning your aspirations and goals increases so will your action plans improve.

The power of a vision board is amplified when you take time out each day to look at it to help us stay focused on our goals. Attached to the vision board is your action plan this can be as simple or as detailed as you need, the important thing is to remember it  needs to be bite-sized steps.

Bite-size steps are not only easier to complete, easy to catch up if you fall behind schedule, but also allow you to achieve and feel success sooner. The experience of success, the joy of success and a time out to congratulate your progress helps build excitement and momentum towards achieving your bigger goals and vision.

Of course I can’t leave it at that without sharing more resources. The first is Oprah Winfrey’s website Oprah has teemed up with a number of people to bring everyone some fantastic FREE resources to help build our careers.

At Oprah’s website you will find some great tips for bringing passion back in to your job, and how you can make the job one that you love to do that plays to your strengths and energises you – it’s free have a look asap.

Before I close out this week I take the time to pay my respects to Michael Jackson’s family and to honour Mr Jackson for his passion, devotion and talent that he brought to all of us through his music.

I recently saw Michael Jackson’s This Is It Movie and it reinforced so many key learning’s to me but perhaps most importantly the importance of humility and respect.

So in closing thank you to everyone that allows me to learn from them and to everyone who lets me share my knowledge with.

As always I look forward to hearing from you.
