You need to know how many units you must provide to cover your costs. These units can be products or hours of service.

APD has been using a unique; successful and focussed 6stepGoal Setting process for the last 15 years. We would like to share an overview of this model with you ……

According to the following report http://www.goalband.co.uk/goal-achievement-facts.htmlmost of us have been trying to set goals for the past 80 years. That is a huge amount of goal setting; an incredible amount of disappointment. OUR MODEL …

Step 1. DREAM BOARD. Write out every thought and idea you have of what you wish to complete during the year on a dream board. JUST LET IT FLOW.

Step 2. LIST. Divide the above into BUSINESS; PERSONAL and HEALTH lists.

Once the dream board activity is completed; then divide into relevant lists. We select the 3 lists you see in the above; but the lists should be relevant to you.

Step 3. PLAN. Not all the items on the list will require planning; but those that do put the word PLAN next to the activity.

 Step 4. DATES. Decide what activity needs to be completed before MAR 31 and put ST (Short Term) next to it. Decide what must be completed before Jun 30 and put MT 9Medium Term) next to it. The rest must be completed before Dec 31 so put LT (Long Term) next to them (see example below).

Step 5. PLANNING. Now select each goal that has the word PLAN next to it and develop the plan for that goal using the 7Step APD Model.

Take every goal that requires a plan and develop your plan. At APD we use the highly successful 7Step APD Model for our planning; however any planning model you are familiar with that produces results can be used.

As a result of this step; there should now be a full list of activities available for you to enter into your diary for the next 12 months. This becomes your working Project Plan for the year.

Step 6. ACCOUNTABILITY. Finally, fill out the Accountability sheet (we use a specific one at APD but again this can be developed by you to suit yourself) and share with the person that will be accountable. Update this document on a regular basis as you go through the diary and as you achieve your goals.

The APD 6Step Goal Setting is a simple but effective tool to help you achieve your goal. The selected date for the sign off of the goal/activity will help us all get beyond Jan 15th every year and avoid disappointment.

Question – how are you going to make sure that every year you achieve your goals? If you don’t; how sure are you that your competitors are not getting there before you?
