Twelve Steps to Set and Achieve Any Goal

Quote

th-2

 

  1. Step number one is to have a desire. You must have an intense, burning desire for your particular goal.
  2. Believe. You must absolutely believe, deep in your heart, that you deserve the goal and that you are capable of attaining it.
  3. The third step to goal achievement is for you to write it down. A goal that is not in writing is not a goal at all.
  4. Analyze your starting point.
  5. Decide why you want a particular goal in the first place. Make a list of all the ways that you will personally benefit by achieving that goal.
  6. Set a deadline. If your goal is big enough, break your deadline down into sub deadlines. When you break down your goals into daily and hourly amounts and activities, you will be astonished at how much more you get done.
  7. Determine the obstacles that are standing between you and your goal. You can apply the 80/20 Rule to the obstacles and difficulties blocking you from achieving your goals. This rule says that, in most cases, 80 percent of the reasons you are not attaining your goals are internal. They are within you rather than in the world around you. Only 20 percent of the obstacles are contained in your external situation or in other people.
  8. Determine the additional knowledge, information, and skills you will require to achieve your goal.
  9. Determine the people whose cooperation and assistance you will need. Relationships are everything.
  10. Make a plan to achieve your goal. A plan is an organized list of tasks that you will have to complete to get from where you are to where you want to go. A plan is a list of activities organized by time, sequence, and importance. 
  11. Visualize your goal each day as if it were already attained. Imagine the pride, satisfaction, and happiness you would experience if you were already the person you wanted to be, with the goal that you want to enjoy.
  12. Back everything you do with persistence and determination. Resolve in advance that you will never give up. You must decide, in advance, that nothing will stop you. Then, when you face the inevitable obstacles and difficulties that occur, you will be psychologically prepare. You will bounce rather than break.

A Company is A Culture

Quote

We do better in cultures in which we are good fits. We do better in places that reflect our own values and beliefs. Just as the goal is not to do business with anyone who simply want what you have, but to do business with people who believe what you believe, so too is it beneficial to live and work in a place where you will naturally thrive because your values and beliefs align with the values and beliefs of that culture. 

Now consider what a company is. A company is a culture. A group of people brought together around a common set of values and beliefs.

The goal is not to hire people who simply have a skill set you need, the goal is to hire people who believe what you believe.

The goal is to hire those who are passionate for your WHY, your purpose, cause and belief, and who have the attitude that fits in your culture. Once that is established, only then should their skills set and experience be evaluated.

Great people don’t hire skilled people and motivate them, they hire already motivated people and inspire them.
