Tip of the Week

Some projects sound brilliant so everybody jumps on board, only at the end, when the project is finished and the costs added up, is it realised that the project was actually a complete waste of time and money.

Stop, take a step back then take a cold hard look at the project. Is it really worth all that effort, are there better ways to spend the time money. Sometimes it pays to be brutal.

Helps You Achieve Your Goals

By encouraging you to:

  • Clearly define what is it you are trying to achieve
  • Describe how it is to be achieved
  • Define the benefits that are expected when your Goal has been reached
  • List any resources that will be needed
  • Think about the risks, "nothing in life is risk free". What could go wrong? If it does, what will be the best action to take.
  • Decide when to start on your path to achieving your goal
  • By when it is to be achieved. Remember the famous adage "Rome was not built in a day", so be realistic.
