  • Demystifying, Purpose – Vision- Mission and Goals. | Anthony Beale & Associates
    week s months and even years in the implementation once the proper time has been allocated for its creation The Mission will usually be a significant general statement of how we will deliver the vision It might and probably will need to be broken down into easier to digest chunks These chunks are usually large achievements in and of themselves They are usually called goals and achieve specific outcomes along the way The goals tell us if we are moving in the right direction in line with our mission and getting towards achieving our vision or if we need to stop and reassess Goals come in all shapes and sizes and they can be annual goals biannual quarterly monthly weekly and even daily Depending on their size the may need to be broken down into objectives or mini goals This is where we can really see where we are going in a step by step fashion These mini goals or objectives help decide on which strategies we need to adopt to achieve them Strategies are where we start getting into the specifics of what is required to achieve the goals They can be and usually are medium to long term It is from here that we can create our plans of action Plans are where the rubber starts to hit the road It is where we get into the who will do what When will it be done It is the agreement of how results will be reported and by whom In other words how activities that produce results will be communicated to those that require that information From the plans we can now go about the business of assigning and agreeing the daily weekly activities and actions Nothing moves until we do action is required to get any worthwhile result We all know until we do something we can t get a result Actions are vital to the success of any endeavour Caution Actions without planning strategy objectives goals mission and vision can lead us away from where we really want to go Most people won t pay the price of creating a business or life they want It is considered easier to plod along and hope things improve The price might by money the price will defiantly be the time and the price will be stepping out of your comfort zone The price will be allowing mistakes to be made and then learning from those mistakes That is asking knowing what I now know what will I do different next time as to not repeat the same mistake For short KWINK Some of us are not willing to pay the price and that is fine There will of course at some stage be a price to pay Either way it is a choice The price should we choose not to act is that underlying feeling that we could and should be more It is a great sense of guilt and regret that will come in time Pay the price now and move from your comfort zone into a business and life you can be proud of Be happy with Feel you are creating something worthwhile for you your family your team and your community Either way be ok with your choice no one can choose for you I know this sounds like a lot of work and it is That s why most of us don t do it A small dose of reality for my readers quick fix doesn t work If it fixes quickly you can be sure it will break again quickly Think back about the year almost finished 2013 Are there things that happened more than once that you thought were resolved only to come back twice as bad If that has happened to you that is the result of quick fix It looks great at the beginning that some easy quick things can improve our business our lives and everything They can and do work but usually only in the short term and can t be built on sustainable Quick fix is not a foundation that can be built upon Have you ever gone on a crash diet for example Picture this you exercised like crazy Lost a few pounds After a while you realised it was not sustainable over the long term You probably found that after you ceased the unrealistic regime you put back on all the weight and more That my friend is a quick fix Perhaps you did it the sustainable way You decided on the body you wanted how you were realistically going to get and keep it You set goals to achieve knowledge and mastery You informed yourself on nutrition and exercise programs that could be built around yourself and your life You chose one that you were sure would work for you If this is you you are probably still enjoying the regime Enjoying the lifestyle changes the better health and energy This is why you take a long term view to get sustainable repeatable results 2014 will pass as will 2015 as did the years behind us If you work on yourself and your business with the right tools I know your best years are ahead of you should you choose to do the work I hope you have found value in the reading of this article and have a better understanding of the relationship between purpose and vision vision to Mission Mission to goals goals to objectives and so on right down to daily actions It is in the actions is where you find your success Well planned actions will always yield better results than no or low prepared actions Hoping for better results sadly will not make an impact Some actions will be hard and will push you out of your comfort zone But these actions once complete will give you a huge sense of achievement You will know they are bringing you towards your goals your mission and ultimately your vision Which
