About This Class

In this installment of the Design Your Desired Future with Transformational and Empowerment Coach Jami Brumfield you're going to learn how to take long and short term goals and set them in order of priorities and down size larger goals into smaller chunks. We're also going to discuss procrastination and how it relates to goal planning. 

The two prior classes in this series relate to this course; Analyze, Self-Discover, and Create a Starting Point on Your Success Path and Creat Long and Short Term Goals. These classes will enhance the learning material in this course but they are not necessary to take this course. 

This class will offer you three scenario options and the class project will be to work through those scenarios. You'll be able to transfer the learnings in this course into your own goal planning process.

Siri's with Jamie MacDonald, Broomfield Transformational and empowerment coach. If you've been following along the first class, you learn to analyze self discover and create a goal with actions to put into motion. In the second class, you learn to create a short and long term goals for future success. Using brainstorming and visual imagery techniques. This class we're going to focus on prioritizing long and short term goals and Chungking down or downsizing the big goals to better create more solid action plans. If you're asking why is prioritizing and downsizing important? Great question. Chungking down or downsizing large goals makes the more manageable and easier to put task to complete these goals on your daily schedule. Prioritizing will help you to hit your long term and short term goals, and also better manage your schedule, which will be covered in becoming a time manager. Siri's a little bit about me. I'm Jamie Brumfield, a certified transport personal hypnotherapist, master NLP practitioner, Ricky, master, life coach, confidence coach, Law of Attraction coach and I've also taken continuing education courses in relationship coaching career coaching, business success, coaching and leadership, development, coaching and management. I am truly honored to be along on your journey as you've learned to make lasting transformations in your life and empower yourself to succeed in many areas of your life, you won't need any prior classes or unique skills to complete this class. You only need yourself and the desire to learn. I will provide you with three made up scenarios, and you'll be asked to create goals to overcome the problem, prioritized, downsized and create an action plan that could be completed by the person in the scenario within one week's time. Thes air skills that you can use in your own goal in action planning process. People who will get the most out of this class are people who want to grow and learn. If you're wanting to improve productivity at work or maybe improve productivity at your business or even improve relationships at home or design the desired future that you want to achieve, then this class will be a great learning experience for you. That is the beauty of setting goals and creating action plans. They work in most areas of one's life, So now let's get started on the training quick and roll, and I'll see you in the next video 2. Class project downsize and prioritize: the project for this class is to take one of the three scenarios presented to you. Prioritize goals that need to be achieved, chunk down or break down the goals into manageable pieces by downsizing and create one week action plan for the person in the scenario. It's a great role play activity, and we'll get you into the mindset of doing this with your own goals. I'm looking forward to seeing your projects as they develop. Let's get started with scenarios. Scenario one. Susie needs to lose weight scenario. Two. Brad wants to put smoking scenario. Three. Lucy wants to find a better career. I think these three scenarios because one focus on lifestyle change. The other focus. Some breaking a habit in the last focuses on Professional Girl these air three areas. I see a lot of my coaching practice. I'll discuss each of these scenarios in greater detail. In the next three videos, you're going to want to complete this plaice project in steps so the first step will be to pick which scenario you want to work with. I'm looking forward to seeing which one you choose 3. Scenario 1 Susie: in this scenario, Susie just returned from the doctor's office and was told she needs to lose weight for health reasons. This is a challenge for Susie because she loves sugar and sweets. She also loves bread, and she really has no time in her life for exercise. In this scenario, you're going to be asked to look at her obstacles, break down her challenges into manageable pieces and create a one week plan to help her start on the necessary lifestyle changes. If you pick the scenario, please create a project in the class gallery. Enlist this as your choice. Also list what you see as important long term and short term goals for Suzie to focus in on . 4. Scenario 2 Brad: and Scenario number two Brownies A quit smoking. Now that he and his wife have a new baby, he has tried many times before and failed this time, it's not only his health at stake in his own personal goals at stake, but also the ability be good role model for his daughter. Take a look at the scenario. There are some key factors to look at. If you choose this project, please start your project in the gallery. Let us know that this is a scenario you choose. And what key factors do you think need to be focused in on? This should give you a good list of long term and short term goals for Brad. 5. Scenario 3 Lucy: in Scenario number three. Lucy struggles with finding happiness and success in her career and wants to find a new career in a different area. She is not a sales person, but more of a creative person. She wants to use her marketing degree in a different way that focuses more on her creative abilities and less on the sales aspect. If you choose a scenario, start your project in the project gallery and make a list of short and long term goals. You see Lucy needing to focus on. 6. Pick your Project: Now that you review the scenarios, it's time to get the first step of the project started. Pick which scenario you're going to work with and hop on over the project Gallery and post . Your choice also lives 3 to 5, long term in 3 to 5 short term goals for the person In your scenario, you'll be updating This post is a class continues. If you haven't already done this in the previous videos, please pauses video and do this now and then join me in the next video where we're going to talk about prioritizing. 7. Prioritize: By now, you should see that each scenario has multiple goals that need to be achieved in order to find success or overcome the obstacles in the person's way. This is typical of life. Many times there are multiple things on a person's plate to be completed in. It is necessary to prioritize what needs to happen first in what could be done later in the scenario you chose, pick which of the goals listed needs to be done. First, you might find your goals may evolve and that's okay. Just update the goaless. As you work through the process. Pick the goal that will have the biggest impact in touch multiple areas in that person's life. It's kind of like throwing a pebble into a still pond. The ripple effect works outward and impacts a huge area with a single act. So in a moment, please posits video and go over the goals you created for your scenario, enlist them in order of priority, then update this on your project. In the gallery, this looks like what needs to be done 1st 2nd and so forth. When this is complete, we're going to talk about downsizing 8. Downsizing: in this section, you're going to take three of the larger tasks in your scenario and chunk thes down into smaller, more manageable bites. This is one of the biggest things that you can dio to see huge success in your goal planning strategy. It makes the task seem less daunting and also allows you to celebrate more success by crossing off more completed items on your to do less. Here's an example of how this looks. If you chose Suzie Scenario, one of the goals you might have listed with exercise five days a week seems like a huge undertaking, especially for someone who has no time to exercise in her life. So how do you break this down into more manageable chucks? Some ideas might be. Create a daily analysis of your schedule for three days to see where you might have time to add exercise in your daily routine. Or maybe try committing is exercising only once or twice a week for the first week, then in the second week or the third week increases to two or three times in a week. In both of these suggestions, I made a big task, and it's something that you can do in a couple of days or at the most a week. Timeframe. You might also notice that the task suggestion I made first has nothing to do with the actual exercise, but on overcoming the excuse made on why she can't exercise. Remember the Pebble example. Both of these smaller goals can have greater effects on larger areas of one's life. Now it's your turn. Let's see what inventive ideas you can come up with to downsize three of the long term goals you created pauses, video and complete this in the project gallery before you continue. 9. Action Planning: you've done a lot of great work, and now it's time to start on the action. Planning Your final task on the project is to create a weeklong action plan for the person in the scenario you chose at this point, you've prioritized your short and long term goals, and you've downsized your long term goals into more manageable pieces. Now it's time to pick which goal you would tackle. First, ask yourself specifically, What would you work on first and create three action steps that can be completed in a weekly timeframe. To achieve the specific goal you chose, make sure the steps address the goal and have the potential to have the greatest impact. Ask yourself. Are these realistic and achievable in a week's time? What is the motivation and how will you measure success? All of these are important parts of gold setting in action planning. Post your action plan for the person in your chosen scenario in the project gallery, then check out other completed tasks and provide constructive and positive feedback for at least one other classmate in the gallery. 10. Conclusion: great job. You have completed the project and have learned two very important parts to go planning. I have another class in the Siri's that deep dives further into action planning and making these effective. Remember, every month, I'll choose one person who completed the project in the gallery to send me their own personal one week action plan for teacher feedback. You should be able to take the components you learned in the role play scenarios and apply this to your own goal and action planning processes.
