Settling Goals Right Part 3: Resources

Methodology

To date we’ve talked about how to define your goal with a due date and how to figure out your action plan. Armed with these things, you can now kick off and start working toward achieving the outcomes that you’re looking for. So I hope you have followed along with the the previous two parts and have started putting your action plan into action.

There are a few other things that are worth thinking about when you are defining your goals. Today I want to discuss one aspect of this and I will cover the rest off in a couple of future posts. By the time you’ve read this, you should be in a position to further refine the goals that you have set already through this series of articles.

The first step for today is to look through your action plan and identify the resources that you need to utilise in order to carry out your action plan. Resources can be things (books, videos, websites, …), skills you need to tap into and people you can work with. These can be things that directly affect the outcome of your goal, for example equipment you might need to use or people whose expertise you need to draw on. I also think it’s a good idea to list indirect resources which serve more as inspiration and ways to measure progress so that you can better stay on track. It is useful to have a list of these things for a couple of reasons.

Firstly, I find it useful to have a list of resources in place so that I can instantly see what I need to organise and have ready each day. Having a straightforward list helps you to keep your resources organised and at arm’s reach so that you can concentrate on taking action. Being organised and prepared gives a sense of purpose and can be quite motivating in itself.

Secondly, I always list resources that I can turn to in times of low motivation or when I’ve lost my way with my goal. These can be anything from pictures of your desired outcomes to people you can speak to who will help provide the inspiration (or wake up call)you need to get back on track. At any point you feel like you’re not sure what to do, you can take your written goal plan out, read your action plan and resources and use it to figure out exactly what to do next in order to get moving forward again.

So for this section, I invite you to take one of the goals you have already set and write a list of all the people, skills and resources you can draw on in order to achieve your goal. Just like when we brainstormed your action plan, this is really just a list of things you could utilise. Don’t censor or filter the list by second guessing the things that you think of. If it comes to mind, capture it. It’s better for it to be on the list and go unused than for a critical resource to be forgotten about.

If you’re having trouble getting started, try answering some or all of the following questions:

  • What equipment do I need in order to carry out the steps in my action plan?
  • What skills will I employ when I carry out my action plan? Do I already have these skills or do I need to learn them? Who or what will I learn them from?
  • What books can I read to get the knowledge I need? What videos can I watch? Who can I ask?
  • Who can I speak to/listen to/read about who has already achieved something similar to what I want to achieve? What are their contact details?
  • What are my sources of inspiration and how can I access them? These might be people, places, photos, videos, books, …
  • Who can I ask to hold me accountable and help me stay on track? Who can I share my goal and action plan with who will understand and be someone I can check in with from time to time for advice, inspiration and accountability?

That should be enough to get you started. It might seem like a lot of work but this is something that you only have to do once and it will bring clarity and a sense of organisation and purpose to your actions. Remember nothing that you write has to be perfect and you can always change it later.

I'm really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.

Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

I think that what you wrote was very logical. But, consider this, what if you were to create a awesome headline? I am not suggesting your content is not good., however suppose you added something that makes people want more? I mean Settling Goals Right Part 3: Resources - Goals Designed for Success is a little vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news titles to grab people interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
