Christy’s five steps are:
Evaluate. What do I really want? Where am I headed? What am I doing now?
Get Real. What is really important that will impact and support your long term goals the best? What is not important? What is distracting me? What is not really supporting my long term goal?
Plan. What do I need to do to accomplish my goal? What are the KEY action steps? How will I do this? What schedule or strategy will keep me focused?
Focus. Who do you need to be and what structures do you need to have to accomplish this (mindset, attitude, accountability)?
Monitor/Evaluate. Am I doing little, unimportant things? Am I procrastinating? What is working/ what is not? How could I streamline what I am doing?
I believe that you can never get enough information on setting and achieving goals. Most people overlook this critical step and they wind up in a rut – for a very long time.
