Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival. Sir Winston Churchhill

Executing Your Plan

The execution phase brings together the planning and discipline concepts from the last postings and pieces together a strategy for time management and execution of your tasks. Our discussion continues with Section II:

Section II: Planning and Recording Daily Activities

We have reached the point where you can assign the daily tasks, appointments and activities for the upcoming week. This will become your daily “. . . to do” list of tasks and responsibilities. You may need to purchase a day planning system to facilitate this planning process. You can select any day planning system that works for you. A number of them can be purchased at book stores and through time management catalogs. My only recommendation is to select a planning system that has both hourly appointments and a daily task listing.

For my discussion and illustration of the daily planning process, I will use the day planning system illustrated below. You can find this day planning system in the (Appendix as Form-N and Forms O.1-O.7 ). You are invited to copy these forms if they work for you.

Note: The Appendix also contains a task planning system as Forms P.1-P.7. You can use these forms if you like.

Step 1:
begins by reviewing the activities and tasks listed on your Weekly Goal and Role Planning sheets. I recommend that you complete this and the following steps each Sunday during a time when you can devote a full hour. Select a place where you will not be disturbed.

Step 2:
You will schedule and/or assign the goal, role and attribute development tasks for the entire week. I have included in the appendix a Scheduling Worksheet (Appendix Form-N) that can help you in this assignment. I will use this worksheet to demonstrate the day planning system. You are invited to use this sheet since it will give you an overall view of the entire week. If not, feel free to schedule your tasks directly to your day planning system.

Step 3:
The priority of scheduling is as follows:

1st Priority: Note all previously scheduled appointments from a prior week and schedule them on worksheet (diagrammed by the letter in the illustration). These appointments were scheduled prior to this week’s planning session.

2nd Priority: Schedule all related goal tasks assigned in your the Weekly Goal Planning Sheet (as diagrammed by the letter “G” in the illustration). You may schedule these tasks as task assignments and/or appointments. You may want to complete these tasks early in the morning, in the evening, during your breaks or at any time during the day when you can privately work on your goals.

I place goal scheduling high on the priority listing. Even though your job, school, family, etc., may take precedence during some periods of the day, realize that your goals are important. You want to set aside time to work on your goals and then schedule your day around them.

3rd Priority: Review the character development goals assigned in your Weekly Goal Planning Sheet. Schedule the tasks or times to complete your character development goals (as diagrammed by the letter “H” in the illustration).

4th Priority: Take your Weekly Role Planning Sheet. Schedule the tasks and appointments that complete these role assignments for the entire week (as diagrammed by the illustration). You will schedule these assignments around your achievement and character development goals.

Take time this week to assign tasks. Next time, we will continue the discussion on recording your progress.
