Having goals for things we want to do and working towards them is an important part of being human. The path towards our goals may not always run smoothly or be easy, but having goals, whether big or small, is part of what makes life good. It gives us a sense of meaning and purpose, points us in the direction we want to go and gets us interested and engaged, all of which are good for our overall happiness.
Over 2000 years ago, Aristotle said “Well begun is half done.” And with regards to goals, he’s right (as he seems to have been on a lot of things). Paying attention to how we set our goals makes us more like to achieve them and achieving them makes us feel good about ourselves and our lives.
Define your projects.
The first and most important thing in project planning is to figure out what projects you are dealing with. First, what is a project? My definition is anything that takes more than a few easy tasks to get done. Setting up that new sales software? That’s a project. Expanding your network? Yep, that’s a project, too. Growing your business? That’s a collection of projects!
Give your projects a start and end date.
You should know (or decide) when each project should start and end. This will allow you to sequence projects by prioritizing them based on when they need to start or be finished. Start and end dates will also allow you to plan around your own business cycles and prevent projects from going on for much longer than they should.
Make a one-page plan.
A little planning goes a long way to helping a project succeed. To create a one-page plan, jot down your answers or notes for each of the following questions:
What problem will the project solve?
What is the benefit to the organization?
What kind of staff and budget do I need?
What are the major milestones?
What are the potential stumbling blocks?
What risks does this project pose?
What is my work plan (list of tasks or sub-items to be completed by when)?
At one point in your life, you’re going to have a job interview where someone asks you about your plans for the future. WHAT ARE THEY REALLY ASKING? When someone’s asking about your goals, what they’re really trying to figure out are two main things: First, your motivations for applying for the job you’re currently interviewing for. And second, your ability to plan for the future — or just how forward-thinking you are in general. [ 787 more words ] https://whazuptoday.com/what-are-your-goals-2/

It’s easy to think that the art of conversation is a skill that gets bestowed on a happy few, while others are cursed with turbid tongues. While it’s true that some people simply have a greater portion of innate natural charm, the art of conversation is a skill in which all of us can become competent.
