Achieving Goals

You may believe that goals must have a definite timeline to achieve. In part, this is true, but there are ways which aid you to expedite the process. You can achieve bigger things by centering on the current job and getting it done, without any compromise. Here are some guidelines you may like to try.

Step One: Form a Team

Things can be accomplished more quickly if you rely on one another and delegate tasks accordingly. When creating a team, choose people you can trust and competent in the areas they are working on.  To get the results you want the team will need to be supervisedt. Consider creating a hierarchy or create pairs so that one can look out for the other, thereby saving you time when reviewing work.

Lead the team yourself and you the benefit of practicing your leadership skills. As time goes by tasks will be completed more quickly  as you have created an effective system that will provide a smoother flow in future jobs. Ensure you also get the right number of people for the job, you do not want too many to lead as this could waste precious time in the process.

Step Two: Find Shortcuts

Some goals actually have shortcuts that you can use to reach your outcome more quickly. I am not talking about quick fixes, but something which can help the entire system respond in a more conducive way, thereby boosting the process. For example, there are no short cuts to permanent weight loss, but you can do some techniques that will speed up the fat loss. To identify the best shortcuts, always stay updated with changes and developments in technology and professional programs. Stay connected in a network of people related to your goals. Join forums and undertake online training, attend seminars and take time to talk to experts.

Step Three: Extra Hours

Consistency, discipline and dedication always give you faster and better results. If you want to finish things faster, you may have to put in extra hours and work longer than the usual – at least in the short term. The more important thing is that you monitor your stress levels, take time to relax and give yourself sufficient time to rest. Overtime should also be well-planned as you cannot expect to work effectively beyond your usual time if you’re still tired the night before or do not have enough equipment to work with.

Prepare and strategize by coming up with small objectives and actions steps to be done in sequence. Having information prior to your overtime can help greatly and save you lots of idle time. You may also ask someone to work with you during overtime to accomplish more. Try to incorporate all the three steps above and see for yourself how much more you can boost the process.

Step Four: Work with a Coach

Working with a coach will help you set great goals, take time to identify the action steps required to reach your goal and break larger goals into milestones.  Your coach will keep you focused and on track so you should reach your goals sooner than you would had you not worked with a coach.  Obviously a coach will cost money however it can be a sound investment; consider what your goal is, the importance of getting to goal and the benefit to you to get there.  Only you can decide if it is worth the investment though often it is hard to put a value on working with a coach to increase your income, change your career, lose weight or save a relationship.

What is your goal and how important is it for you to reach it?
