We’re all overwhelmed – we’re BUSY. We’re too busy to plan – sometimes we’re even too busy to think! In this session I unlock the keys to achievement that come from thinking BIG when setting goals, and then get REALLY practical about creation of a simple, personalized action plan that participants can take with them and apply right away.
Using examples from real life, I explain how the path that most of us are on won’t lead us where we want to go. If we want to overcome the overwhelm we’re going to have to make some changes in our approach, and it turns out that it’s not hard at all!
- Planning matters – If we don’t make planning a priority, we’re going to fall victim to the most urgent tasks rather than the most important ones.
- Why Wilfredo Pareto’s 1906 analysis of Italian landowners applies to your to do list today! Most of our results come from the few, the really important things on our to do list. If we think critically about it, we can re-prioritize the important 20% and become far more effective.
- Thinking differently – If we don’t re-think the way we approach goals and achievement we will continue to be frustrated. Making the time to break out of your pattern – getting out of the box – will allow you to re-evaluate the things on your list.
- Setting goals – Once we realize the power of written goals (10x income difference in a 1979 Harvard study) we can take just 120 seconds to create the list of Big Goals we want to tackle next.
- Baby Steps You Can Take Next – Once the big goals are identified, I provide a simple exercise to help participants make measurable progress immediately.
Attendees leave the session energized, inspired and enthused about goal achievement, and with a specific set of actions that they can take to see measurable progress.
Anyone who wants to move from “daily work” to “breakthrough.” This program has been effective for law firms, software development companies, engineering firms, entrepreneurs, large teams, and conferees at technical conferences to help them think and act differently.
This presentation can be delivered as a keynote, workshop, or half-day seminar. Keynotes can range from 30–70 minutes, depending on your needs. The ideal keynote length is one hour.
- Attendees will understand why planning matters
- They will identify an easy to implement planning framework
- They will create a short, personalized list of goals to pursue
- They will identify specific, measurable steps that they can take to achieve those goals
- I’ve spent enormous amounts of time searching the best resources available to understand the difference between average and top performers. This program represents the cream of the crop, curating the most effective principles and practices to help participants see immediate improvements.
- Over the last few years I’ve helped hundreds of people discover and apply these ideas to improve their performance and achievement.
- As a Founding Partner in the John Maxwell team, for the last several years I have been an executive coach working with teams in multi-billion dollar companies and have seen over and over again how implementation of these principles makes a measurable difference in outcomes.
