Execute Success: The Third Ingredient to Success
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:
Planning and Assigning Weekly and Daily Tasks
Section II compiles your respective “. . . to do” list of tasks and appointments that you must complete to achieve your benchmarks/goals. You will refer to this section often as you plan and assign tasks for each week.
Weekly Goal Task Planning and Assignment
At this stage of the execution ingredient, you have painted a big picture showing what you want to accomplish. The big picture shows your objective and goals, lists the benchmarks that will achieve the goals, identifies the major tasks that will achieve the benchmarks and assigns a completion date for each major task. You are now ready to execute your plan.
The Weekly Goal Planning Sheet (Appendix Form-L) is a planning sheet for assigning the major tasks and character attributes changes for each week. May I suggest that you complete this sheet beginning each Sunday morning. Find a time and place where you will not be disturbed. Use this time to plan and assign the tasks, appointments and all role assignments for the entire week. These assignments will become your blueprint of activities for the coming week.
We begin with the Weekly Planning Sheet as illustrated. List at the top the week dates from Sunday to the following Sunday.
The middle portion of the planning sheet is divided into two columns. You can assign within each column one goal with two respective benchmark(s) and major tasks. You will use your goal planning kit to complete this section.
Review your Task Assignment Sheets from your goal planning kit. Select the goals that you need to work on for the week and list them with the respective benchmark(s) and major tasks on the Weekly Goal Planning Sheet as illustrated (diagrammed by the letter D and the letter E in the illustration).
Note that under the last benchmark is a Goal-Benchmark icon with the phrase “See Week:” Ignore this icon for now. We will discuss this execution concept in the next chapter.
The bottom portion of the Weekly Goal Planning Sheet is your character attribute assignment for the week. Here you will list the character attribute(s) that you are developing for the coming week. The steps listed in the attribute chapters will refer to this form. Simply list the attribute goal in the appropriate space.
Next week, we continue our discussion with “Role Planning”.
