90 Day Strategic Goal Setting
As a part of The 7 Minute Community we encourage each of you to clarify and re-establish written 90 day personal goals and 90 day work goals. This is an edited excerpt from my book The 7 Minute Solution:
“When you establish your ninety-day work goals realize that in an ninety-day period there are approximately sixty workdays of eight hours each for a total of 480 hours. My guess is that most of us work far more than that. But are we really working on projects that matter for eight hours a day? Or are we focusing our attention on things that pull us away from our purpose and our goals?
The next 90 workdays of your life could be radically different if you use these planning tools. Sit down alone or with your team, and decide what you really want to accomplish over the next three months. You may want to focus on only two or three major work goals per ninety days.
As you create your written 90-day work goals, step back and focus on what really moves the bar. Simplify your goals into meaningful accomplishments. Write your goals in present tense, as though they have already been reached. They follow each goal with action steps that you personally have control over.
7 Minute Solution Practical Application No.4: Create A 90-Day Work Goals Worksheet
The 90-Day Work Goals Worksheet is strategically one of the most powerful tools in this book. Bringing order to your thoughts and to your workday is one of the goals of this book.
As you write down your 90-day work goals, you instantly release your subconscious brain to set out a net to scan for and to capture millions of new ideas for potential solutions to reach your goals. But you must first narrow down what you want to accomplish. Your written goals give you strategic focus. And when you deliberately think through what actions you need to take to reach each goal, the only thing left to do is to execute them.”
