E614: Take Action Items

Focus on completing the tasks not winning the prize.


  1. The process of pyramid goals
    1. Start with a vision and drill down to the actions needed
    2. We focus on the actions, not the goals
    3. Do the work so you can reap the rewards
  2. So far this week
    1. We worked on vision, goals, and plans to achieve the goals – now the actions
    2. What tasks need to be done in order to facilitate our plans
    3. What do we need to do and when
  3. Create the task list
    1. I have uploaded an Implementation Plan spreadsheet here
      1. Use this to start with your plan and develop your tasks
      2. Use the bottom task section to track your activity and stay on course
    2. Break your plan down into single tasks
    3. Assign and track the tasks – start focusing on execution

E613: Creating Implementation Plans

Achieve your goals by creating action plans.


The next step in the Pyramid Goal System – Creating the plans


  1. We defined our targets
    1. Created our goals and trajectories
    2. We have completed the top portion of the pyramid
    3. Now – how do we reach the top?
  2. Creating the game plan
    1. What do you need to do to achieve your goals
    2. What improvements / changes / etc do you need to do
    3. How do you break your goal down into smaller chunks – plans on how to achieve
      1. Example – $5M or more in revenue
        1. That’s $417K per month @ 4 projects is $104K per project per month
          1. How? Schedule each project with the necessary resources to complete $104K
          2. Track each project bi-weekly to maintain production and make adjustments
  3. Create a summary of your plans and prioritize
    1. Take your list of goals that you created yesterday
      1. Start breaking those goals down into plans
    2. Review each plan based on the Priority Matrix
    3. Prioritize your plans and create your implementation plan for 2017

E255: Goal Pyramids – Making a Connection

We often fail to reach our goals because we fail to consistently take the needed small steps.
