Action Planning

As a professor and teacher, I understand the importance of theory. Theory gives us the foundation on which to build. As a coach, I understand the importance of action. Just as wisdom is the combination of knowledge and experience, progress is the combination of theory and action.

I work with many of my clients on action plans, the roadmaps to our success. Follow these simple steps to create your Action Plan.
  1. Write down your goals and remember to make them SMART goals. (Specific, Measurable, Aligned with your values, Realistic, Time-bound)
  2. List steps necessary to achieve each of your identified goals.
  3. Identify past success or strengths you have. This is a good reminder that you can accomplish this goal.
  4. List the people and resources you have available to support you.
  5. Name any hazards, weaknesses, or blocks that could cause you to stumble.
  6. Identify the strengths, support, and resources available to you if you were to stumble. Include a statement as to why you would turn to them.
  7. Record the reasons and benefits that cause you to want to achieve your goals.
Review your goals each day and spend time in the morning and the evening visualizing yourself already achieving that goal. How do you feel? What changed for you in your life? When you sit with this image, the realization of your goal becomes stronger and more powerful.

What is the goal you are most proud of achieving? I can’t wait to celebrate with you!
