How do I get there?

The six step process

connect to mission

review roles

identify goals

organize weekly

exercise integrity

evaluate

time


Time

step 1: connect with vision & mission

Consider the big picture. The key to this connection lies in the clarity of your vision around such questions as:

  • What is most important?

  • What gives your life meaning?

  • What do you want to be and do in your life?

time


Time

step 2: identify your roles

  • we have important roles at work, in the family, in the community, or other areas of our lives

  • Roles represent responsibilities, relationships, and areas of contribution

time


Time

step 3: select quad II goals for each role

  • what is the most important thing I could do for each role this week that would have the greatest positive impact?

  • consider the relationships for each role

  • review a “perhaps” list for ideas

  • identify the steps that need to be taken to achieve long-term goals

time


Time

step 4: organize weekly

  • translating high leverage quad II goals requires a framework

  • most people are always trying to find time in their overflowing quad I/III schedules

  • They move, delegate, cancel, and postpone—all in hopes of “putting first things first”

    the key is in scheduling your priorities, not prioritizing your schedule

time


Time

step 4: organize weekly

Distinctive Elements of Effective Weekly Goals

  • they can be either an area of focus or a specific activity

  • they are usually quad II goals rather than typical “to-do’s” or daily action items

  • they are driven by conscience

tips to start your day

Tip #1

preview your schedule—get your bearings:

  • review your compass

  • Look at the day in the context of the week

  • renew your power to respond to changes in a meaningful way

Tip #2

prioritize: identify activities as QI or QII—keeps QIII and IV out of your schedule

  • emphasizes the importance paradigm

  • keeps you aware of choices you make

    must understand that prioritization includes only items that you’ve put in the framework

Tip #3

T planning: time sensitive activities on the right, any time activities on the left

  • makes for effective schedule decisions

  • Helps you remain sensitive to commitments

    Best use of your time: remember importance rather than urgency!

step 5: exercise integrity in the moment

Should I carry out my plan or make conscience directed changes?

time


Time

step 6: evaluate

To be successful, you must make successes of one week the foundation for the next. At the end of the week, ask yourself some questions:

  • What goals did I achieve?

  • What challenges did I encounter?

  • What decisions did I make?

  • Did I keep “first things first?”

time


Time

step 6: evaluate

different ways to evaluate

  • mark accomplished goals on weekly compass

  • keep a journal or daily log and review

  • review past weekly compasses

  • ask specific questions about your performance and actions

time


Time

step 6: evaluate

weekly evaluation

  • What did I learn from the week as a whole?

  • Am I setting goals that are realistic but challenging?

  • Have I been effective in work related communications?

  • Have I been successful in maintaining a Quad II perspective?
