How YOU Can Accomplish More Through a Personal Achievement List

Too often managers modestly, and often unjustly or even unwittingly, hide their successes from others – and indeed from themselves. They fail to understand that the simple strategy of recording personal successes can motivate, increase self-productivity, and support career advancement. The compilation of a personal achievement list can have a considerable effect on a manager’s professional life… 1. Acknowledge your achievements to date. Most managers see themselves as ‘modest achievers’. They’re so accustomed to doing what they do and what is expected of them that they rarely, if ever, class any of their accomplishments as ‘achievements’. Indeed, when people are impressed with something they’ve done – something that perhaps seems rather ordinary to them – they’re surprised. As a manager, you can use your past achievements more positively to motivate you to greater heights. To shrug off those achievements modestly, as most professionals are prone to do, or to forget [...]

In our previous blog we looked at 6 tips to help you with your goal-setting. Here are 7 more to further help you develop more effective goals and achieve that career and training success! 7. Make your goals timely. There should be a time dimension that specifies when the goal is to be achieved. Tying a specific deadline to a goal along with individual accountability usually leads to a more proactive approach to its achievement. 8. Write them down. By committing your goals to paper, and making them public, you not only convert dreams into tangible targets, but also work harder for their achievement - or risk losing face. 9. Align goals with the corporate mission. Remember to link individual goals to group goals, which ultimately should be linked to organisational or corporate goals. 10. Publicize your goals. The best way to accomplish anything is to set your goals - then [...]

How to Set Achievable Goals

Goal-setting has been described as 'the inner technology of success'. It is one of your organisation's most important activities. Unless taken seriously, this vital planning task will be futile, producing only a few high-sounding intentions that, for various reasons, are soon forgotten. So, if you want challenging and achievable goals, you should consider these basic principles... 1. Make sure your goals are realistic. A goal that aims too high, or offers a great deal of risk, with little chance of achievement, leads to frustration and surrender. It's easy, for example, to say that a goal for the year is: ‘To increase production by 150%’ - but quite unrealistic with inadequate resources and uncommitted staff. 2. Keep them simple. If goals are complex, it is unlikely they will be clear and specific enough to focus effort and marshal the necessary resources. Clear simple goals give staff an unmistakable vision of what [...]

In our previous blog post we spoke about the benefits of having and maintaining a personal achievements list in order to make this year your year of success. Personal Achievement Lists are often overlooked in our busy lives, however the value of knowing what you want to achieve and being able to tick them off as you see each one come to pass is priceless. Don't let this year get away from you! Make the most of each day by knowing what it is you want to accomplish. We have compiled some information, stories and quotes to further your understanding on the topic. Viewpoint "I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish all tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of [...]

Streamlining Objectives for Success

By |2019-09-27T13:04:09+10:00November 24th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Leadership, School of Management, School of Project Managment, Schools, Training|

To achieve a goal, there is a process that you should implement. This process is to streamline and analyze your objectives. Begin at the very beginning at the smallest, specific part. These are the most important steps to take to meet the guidelines. An objective is a way of knowing what action or plan is to be taken and identifying the expected results. This plan provides a set of directions so that making the decision will not be as complicated as when the goal is just being considered. Peter Ducker documented a book published in 1954 entitled Practiced Management wherein MBO which stands for Management by Objectives, was introduced. This is a program that consists of simple but very useful processes in order to meet commitments in an organization. Never worry, as this is also applicable to personal plans. MBO consists of 5 steps: 1. It should be SPECIFIC. It [...]

Expect to Succeed Part 2

By |2019-09-27T13:04:11+10:00November 17th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, Schools, Training|

There’s an old saying, “What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?” While it sounds good on the surface (and it is, don’t get me wrong), it’s not perfect. Sure you could say what you would attempt if you knew you couldn’t fail, but that doesn’t help you when your brain is shouting, “Hey dummy, you’re probably going to fail, don’t you realize that?” The original question is a good start, but it needs to be taken a step further. Instead of wishful thinking about what “could” happen, I’ve found a better question is more along the lines of “What will you attempt knowing that you will ultimately succeed, despite all the ‘failures’ that are sure to come along the way?” Because, face it, life is going to throw some pretty rough stuff over to you. You’re going to have a lot more “go wrong” than you’d [...]

Vision Equals Success

"We shall not cease from exploration, And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time." T.S.Eliot, Four Quarters. In our last blog post we discussed the value of vision and how powerful it is for an organisation to have a strong vision. In this blog post we have compiled some facts, tips and anecdotes for you to enjoy that will continue to give us an understanding about building a vision for our organisations. Smile & ponder Someone once said that doers get to the top of the oak tree by climbing it. Dreamers sit on an acorn. While arriving at and articulating your vision requires more than simply dreaming, in the long run the vision will only become a reality through action - and that will require climbing, not sitting! It's a fact On 6 June 1844, George [...]

Taking Initiative as April rolls in!

By |2019-09-27T13:05:07+10:00March 28th, 2014|Leadership, Online Short Courses, School of Business, School of Management, School of Project Managment, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Training|

"Achievers have one crucial characteristic in common: they are constantly looking for new ways to impact their environment. The initiator knows that there are dozens of opportunities to initiate in every organisation. It's a way of looking at the world that spawns not only major breakthroughs, but a steady stream of small gains (which in retrospect often look like breakthroughs). When you decide to initiate, you become a player instead of a spectator. And though taking initiative certainly has its material rewards, the good feelings of accomplishment and control over your life are even better." Jimmy Calano & Jeff Salzman, CareerTracking, Gower, Aldershot, 1988, p.21. As we took a look at our goals from the start of the year in our last blog post, we wanted to share some inspiring stories with you about people who really did take initiative and didn't let anything hold them back. You too can do [...]

How to Take Initiative and Make Things Happen!

Is anyone else shocked that it is nearly April? It was only 4 months ago when we were all frantically scribbling down goals for this year: Make more time for people I love Take more risks Achieve my dreams Exercise more Gain a promotion Up-skill in these areas... Sound familiar? I'm sure that although our lists sounded slightly different, we all had similiar goals and aspirations to achieve more, enjoy life more and make the most of 2014. So how is it going so far? Is your motivation still running on high? We thought it was about time we had a reminder that although the promise of a new beginning isn't pushing us to set goals, the promise of a year almost a third complete may give us that push we need to achieve that list! So...how to take initiative and make things happen? What is it that [...]
