Today on this episode of the inspired stewardship podcast i'm talking with you about a special topic.

00:01:49.938 --> 00:01:58.583
Is the new all reviews i've broken it up into four parts and if you missed it last month we talked about the review step.

00:01:59.184 --> 00:02:06.919
We're gonna talk about plan reflect and reviws and today were diving deep on planning.

00:02:07.583 --> 00:02:10.583
No one area that a lot of folks need,

00:02:10.598 --> 00:02:23.475
some help with is around the area of productivity getting not just more things done but not actually getting the right things done can be really really tough.

00:02:23.706 --> 00:02:38.337
I've gotta horse called productivity for your passion that's designed to help you do this and that hold you accountable and walk with you so that you can tailor productivity not just to be.

00:02:38.731 --> 00:02:39.949
Getting more done.

00:02:40.135 --> 00:02:50.877
Actually getting the right things done what's more we take the approach of looking at your personality and how you actually look at things in the world and taylor the productivity system.

00:02:51.154 --> 00:02:52.822
Your personality,

00:02:52.927 --> 00:03:04.210
just the truth is a lot of the systems that are out there reading really well for somebody with a particular personality type but if you have a different approach to things that just don't work.

00:03:04.666 --> 00:03:18.199
There's tools and techniques and approaches that you can take that will work for anyone can we help you do that and productivity for your passion check it out over and inspired stewardship dot com slash launch.

00:03:20.006 --> 00:03:26.887
First glance is we talk about doing the annual review and beginning to look forward to twenty twenty and plan

00:03:26.866 --> 00:03:39.076
just like in the last week when we talked about review and i pointed out that this is something that you can do not just annually but you can actually set it up and do it weekly do it monthly do it quarterly.

00:03:39.244 --> 00:03:45.143
When do the years well playing is the same way i do a weekly

00:03:44.978 --> 00:03:55.010
play at the beginning of each week i do mine on sunday night there's no magic to doing it on sunday night just set up a time and a place and do it in a routine

00:03:54.998 --> 00:03:55.739

00:03:56.069 --> 00:04:06.307
Any in that that weekly planning period i look forward to the week that's coming up and i'm look at my time and i figure out what kind of appointments do i have what sort of things are coming up

00:04:06.278 --> 00:04:14.229
i bought those off and make sure that time is accounted for and then i feel and what the plan around the rest of my time for the week.

00:04:14.857 --> 00:04:16.804
I did the same thing for a month.

00:04:17.008 --> 00:04:27.031
I did the same thing each day when i get up in the morning and i'm look at my day i want to see if anything sent justin since i worked on my weekly plan and i do that quarterly.

00:04:27.478 --> 00:04:39.508
And then across the year so right now we're kind of at a yearly period where you would begin to think about what are your goals that are coming up for twenty twenty.

00:04:39.865 --> 00:04:52.804
So i see you have you done your review when you look at what you got done last year new beginning to think about what are the areas of my life that i want to know focus on for twenty twenty you want to go to the list of,

00:04:52.819 --> 00:05:02.203
the kind of seven zero ns of your life you see this divided different ways but generally what it boils down to if you wanna think about your spiritual

00:05:02.065 --> 00:05:08.468
life which is including things around meditation around prayer times scripture these sorts of things,

00:05:08.474 --> 00:05:15.031
your financial area what are your monetary goals for this year both personal and business if you're both.

00:05:15.271 --> 00:05:19.154
Pensacola areas what do you want to do in terms of health and fitness,

00:05:19.223 --> 00:05:28.624
electro what do you want to do to grow your mind relation all what you want to do around friends and family work and career goals,

00:05:28.675 --> 00:05:43.028
anything fun or recreational goals if you think three seven areas of your life you want to begin to think about two or three things within each of these is the maximum that you wanna focus on this year.

00:05:43.286 --> 00:05:52.138
Even if you did three across all seven areas that be twenty one separate goals which is a lot to do in a twelve month period.

00:05:52.360 --> 00:06:01.014
M o really get to do it more gonna focus on different goals and different plates somethings been goals that we work across the entire year,

00:06:01.047 --> 00:06:05.615
some will be goals that we focus on for just a particular period of time,

00:06:05.648 --> 00:06:17.020
and so by doing that you can balance this is really be doing twenty one things every day and eating every month because that would be overwhelming and impossible.

00:06:17.378 --> 00:06:32.189
I generally don't have twenty one separate goals i usually end up without telling or twelve because there are some areas were really i'm not looking for major growth in that area right now i'm just looking to maintain something

00:06:32.042 --> 00:06:35.529
or perhaps i have just one golden that area.

00:06:35.706 --> 00:06:47.907
Like it as a physical gold maybe it's just a walking gold to walk a certain number of times a week ago to go to the gym a certain number times a week and that's enough because it encompasses a wide area of growth.

00:06:48.174 --> 00:06:56.648
So you yourself may have a certain number of goals he probably shouldn't be more than twenty one and it should be definitely be less than that.

00:06:57.087 --> 00:07:02.275
And it should be more than one or two because again this is for a year at this point.

00:07:02.776 --> 00:07:11.682
What kind of goals do you write u wanna write what i like to call smarter goals and again this is an acronym the chelsea floating around the internet,

00:07:11.706 --> 00:07:20.919
you hear about smart goals and smarter goals and different people with different terms with different letters but he is kind of how i use that

00:07:20.808 --> 00:07:34.215
i'm looking for goals that are specific that's what the ass and smarter stands for goals that weren't very clear and exactly described what is your after it's not okay to say i wanna lose weight.

00:07:34.365 --> 00:07:44.018
You wanna lose weight tell me exactly how much weight u wanna lose i wanna lose seventy five pounds it needs to be measure a bolt that's the

00:07:43.898 --> 00:07:45.963
so miserable meaning

00:07:45.852 --> 00:08:00.501
there is some way to see the results it doesn't necessarily have to measure the number that you should be able to at the end somebody from the outside should be able to look at it and go yes you achieve that goal are no you did not

00:08:00.382 --> 00:08:07.910
it needs to be action oriented that means it needs to have a bourbon needs to be about doing something,

00:08:08.051 --> 00:08:19.433
another way to look at that he is it needs to be something that cheap but i don't like that one because when we say we achieve we tend to lower the bar we tend to do something that is less

00:08:19.214 --> 00:08:23.106
set the stretch goal something is pushing us are.

00:08:23.265 --> 00:08:31.901
Stands for risky this is something that pushes the envelope a little bit you want you to be going out on the limb but not

00:08:31.763 --> 00:08:39.760
too far this can be so overwhelming that you'll never get started but it needs to be something that scares you a little bit

00:08:39.694 --> 00:08:54.461
the tv stand for time bound going back to that weight goal i wanna lose seventy pounds by december thirty first twenty twenty that's what it means to be time bound you put up a beginning a middle and an end on to the goal.

00:08:55.223 --> 00:09:00.826
If it to have it gone will talk more about that in a minute needs to be something how long are you gonna stick to that have it.

00:09:01.309 --> 00:09:11.304
E needs to be something exciting article and enjoyable it needs to be something that you kinda get pumped up about it needs to be something that is

00:09:11.193 --> 00:09:18.902
not going to be illegal or more of a need to be something that you at least at some level have the hope of enjoying,

00:09:18.917 --> 00:09:26.905
now don't get me wrong getting up in the morning and going for a run is probably not something that most people would describe is enjoyable but.

00:09:27.235 --> 00:09:32.697
How come behind it what does it for you is something that.

00:09:32.913 --> 00:09:38.572
C has an enjoyable set the enjoyment here can be deeper than just source level.

00:09:38.893 --> 00:09:48.619
In the last orange smarter is resources it needs to be something that you have access to tools and abilities where

00:09:48.526 --> 00:09:55.460
it's going to be something that you can have to roll some skills and some tools and some abilities and do that you know,

00:09:55.521 --> 00:10:03.202
what do you at least need to start getting you don't need to know the entire destination but you need to know at least part of it,

00:10:03.226 --> 00:10:06.992
what you come up with these smart goals right there

00:10:06.836 --> 00:10:15.133
down not i cant stress this enough there is very important actually writing the words onto a piece of paper,

00:10:15.223 --> 00:10:25.501
post it where you can see it look at them as part of your weekly review is part of your monthly review i've looked over my monthly goals in my annual goals each and every moment.

00:10:25.705 --> 00:10:32.262
That way i know am i on track to my working on the right goals at the right time i minute ago i mentioned having goals.

00:10:32.619 --> 00:10:37.630
Vs something else there's two kinds of categories of golden bears have it goals,

00:10:37.684 --> 00:10:46.665
the bengals have a goal is something words focused on doing something over and over again going to the gym three times a week.

00:10:46.969 --> 00:10:51.341
Brushing my teeth every night huh geez hub id goals they're about,

00:10:51.458 --> 00:10:54.425
reoccurring patterns of behavior.

00:10:54.809 --> 00:11:00.199
The other kind of goal is an achievement golf this is about i want to increase my,

00:11:00.253 --> 00:11:04.841
income by a thousand dollars a month i want to have.

00:11:05.009 --> 00:11:09.657
Ten more clients this year than last year i want to,

00:11:09.744 --> 00:11:14.674
chievo weight of a hundred and twenty pounds and the truth is,

00:11:14.755 --> 00:11:19.506
most goals can kinda be structured in both ways you can create,

00:11:19.512 --> 00:11:28.985
i have a cold that will lead to achieve my goals or you can create and he meant golf that will mean that you have to perform certain habits,

00:11:29.027 --> 00:11:33.207
try to think about what is the way that you want to make sure

00:11:33.069 --> 00:11:41.939
this particular girl that's what helps you decide is it to have a golf under the mat gold for you will talk some more
