Execute Success: The Evaluation Process

I saw a fleet of fishing boats . . . I flew down almost touching the craft and yelled at them, asking if I was on the right road to Ireland. They just stared. Maybe they didn’t hear me. Maybe I didn’t hear them. Or maybe they thought I was just a crazy fool. An hour later I saw land.

The steps outlined in these next postings will measure your progress on a daily, weekly and phase-to-phase basis. We have segmented the postings into the following discussions:

I: Daily Task Measurement.
II: Weekly Goal and Benchmark Evaluation
III: Weekly Role Evaluation
IV: Daily Character Attribute Evaluation
V: Weekly Character Attribute Evaluation
VI: Life Phase Evaluation
VII: Starting a New Life Phase
VIII: Objective and Goal Evaluation

Daily Task Measurement

A daily task evaluation measures your achievement of daily tasks. It’s a simple process. You check off each completed task and appointment as diagrammed by the letters “A” on the sample below.

Sometimes you will not be able to complete each task assigned because different priorities come up that force you to change your plans. Your daily schedules should be flexible. Your boss, family or other events may force you to alter your plan and reassign tasks to another time as diagrammed by the letter “B” on the Tuesday sample below.

This brings up a good question: What takes priority – your daily plan or other events that come up during the week? This is your call. Of course, an emergency meeting scheduled by your boss will take precedence over a scheduled task. And if your child or spouse needs your immediate attention, your plans may need to be rescheduled. But there comes a time when your scheduled plan must take priority. You will need to inform others that your time is currently occupied and that you can schedule some time next week to meet or complete another task. Learn to say ‘no’ when non-important events conflict with your pre-defined schedule.

Sometimes you will fail to complete the task within the time frame allotted. This is a common occurrence. We often tackle bigger assignments than time permits. Time is a valuable commodity and we are limited to 24 hours in a day. But the big difference between those who succeed and those who don’t is that successful people learn how to manage their time. Successful people watch less television, spend minimal time on menial chores, juggle several projects simultaneously and work aggressively fast to complete projects within assigned time limits. You need to develop these same traits to manage your time effectively.

You will be able to complete multiple tasks as you become more disciplined. But sometimes, tasks that you scheduled for “2 hours on Monday” will not get completed. You simply reschedule the task later in the week or into next week as diagrammed by the letter “C” on the Monday sample schedule and the next week’s Role Planning Sheet. One key rule in any time management program is to stick with your schedule. If you fail to complete the task as scheduled, place the work aside and move on to the next scheduled assignment. Uncompleted tasks at the end of the week can be scheduled for completion later on.

Next week: we discuss reasons why you will fail achieving your tasks.
