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

This posting places in action the final ingredient of success. 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 begins with Section I:

Section I: Assembling Your Personal Goal Planning Kit
You will refer to this section each time you begin a new life phase. You may want to review Chapters 3-4 to refresh your memory on the planning concepts. We begin by assigning a life phase to achieve certain goals.

Segmenting and Assigning Life Phases

A life phase is any period of one or more years that includes a time for personal growth and achievement. You will assign certain goals for achievement during this period of time. For example, you may assign 4-5 years as a life phase to achieve your collegiate and graduate degree goals. When this phase ends with your collegiate degree in hand, you will assign a new life phase to achieve your next level of goals.

As a general rule, a life phase covers about 2-5 years, depending on what you want to accomplish. A phase running less that two years may not be long enough to achieve certain goals and benchmarks. Likewise, a phase running more than five years may cause you to lose focus of what you are trying to accomplish.

You begin by going back to your birth date and segmenting your life to the present time. You may want to divide this time into respective phases covering a certain time period as illustrated on the next page as Step-1 (use Appendix Form-G). After you complete this exercise, review your goal plan that you completed back in Chapter 4. Determine what you want to accomplish in the next phase of your life and assign a period of time for the next 2-5 years as diagrammed by Step-3 in the illustration. The number of years assigned depends on what you want to accomplish.

Designing the Objective and Goal Planning Sheet

The planning concepts for designing the Objective and Goal Planning sheet (Appendix Form-G) can be found in Chapters 3-4. These two chapters discuss how to plan and prioritize the goals that will achieve the objective. You were instructed to use the Justwyn Model for Goal Planning (Form-C) to identify and prioritize your goals. Use this planning model to design the Objective and Goal Planning sheet in this section.

The Objective and Goal Planning sheet (Appendix Form-H) is the first sheet in your goal planning kit. Take the form and write on top your current life phase and the assigned years. Next, write your objective in the pinnacle section of the pyramid.

Now take the goals that you identified and prioritized from the Justwyn Model for Goal Planning in Chapter 4 (Appendix Form-C) and transfer them to the Objective and Goal Planning sheet as illustrated below. List the goals in hierarchical order as explained in the planning chapters. Write the goals in the spaces of the planning pyramid using one or two key words.

The pyramid has a maximum of 14 stones. You may need to combine goals if necessary to fit them into the spaces available. If you have less than 14 goals identified, leave some of the spaces near the top of the pyramid blank. Refer back to Chapters 3-4 if you need to refresh your memory on goal identification and prioritization.

Next week, we will outline your tasks to achieve the goals.
