It seems to be a fact of life that most of us are so busy dealing with day-to-day matters that our life and business goals tend to get left on the shelf, perhaps until we get a nasty shock that forces us to reappraise things.
One way to rectify this is simply to write them down and stick them on the wall. But does that work? If it was that easy, we would have just done it surely. Aren’t life goals more like the cliche of eating an elephant – they have to be done one bite at a time. Which brings us back to never truly committing to make it happen – it is all too intimidating; procrastination is the line of least resistance.
But I am not here to talk about life coaching, but some software. Developed by a German to manage his Olympic sailing campaign, (have a look at this amazing, scary footage to see why it takes some effort ) it is a great tool to help record, break down and manage all sorts of goals, whether business, personal, family, spiritual, sport whatever. You can also track progress which becomes immediately visible, delegate tasks and more. Attach data files, audio, video, pdfs, Office, etc too. The online version enables collaboration with associates.
It is even better than powerpoint for presentations sometimes (as the narrative need not be time-linear) and certainly has replaced mind maps in my life.
Whilst I would be very happy if anyone clicks the link below and buys a copy, (its not expensive either) this is more an exhortation to think about personal goals then do something about achieving them. On the way, if you can join the community that shares its templates for success, even better. If you would like my input on growing a business, managing pubs and restaurants or improving your dinghy sailing just shout.
