Achieve your goals on time - every time
The Chronicle’s Business blog/jerry bellune
Our friend Ann Elliott agreed to work with us on our 1st book. Its mission as to teach sales people the top 7 strategies of sales super stars. They were great sales people we had worked with over the years.
Ann worked with us about an hour and left us a goal setting work sheet.
The sheet required us to write a richly detailed description of the book’s purpose, describe how we would feel when it was finished and published and to set a realistic date for completing the final draft.
Finally we listed each step no matter how minor that we needed to finish the final draft and publish and market the book.
Each step had to say what was required, who would we need to help complete it and a firm deadline for it to be finished.
Using Ann’s work sheet, we listed each thing that was yet to be done and finished the book a few weeks later. The sheet provided a great incentive and a step by step road map to get where we wanted to go.
We use that work sheet with all our coaching clients and in every mentoring session. It helps our clients hold themselves accountable. They never come to a session feeling ashamed a step was not completed.
We share such ideas in “Maverick Entrepreneurs’ Million Dollar Strategies.”
