How to Hit Your Goals

Last week I had several posts on performance measurement systems since this is the time of year when many organization are planning for the next calendar.  While this isn't necessarily the Lean way it provides a good opportunity to talk about these subjects.  This annual organization goal setting process is usually followed closely by the annual individual review and goal setting process.

Today, I want to share a ClarityMap to help you hit your goals.  A clarity map is visual guide to help give you the insight needed to make good choices. 



Click here for a pdf version of this map.

While there a lot of valuable information on this map I quite like this:

Action Creates Clarity - At first the details to achieve a goal may be fuzzy but as you take small actions toward the goal it comes more into focus.

This ClarityMap is the work of Derek Franklin who was gracious enough to allow me to share it with all of you.

Derek is also the creator of the 3 Steps to Get Things Done ClarityMap and The Action Machine, a visual time management software based on the above steps. The goal behind The Action Machine is simple: To give you a way to visually structure your day in a way that you feel absolutely compelled to take action and get things done, once and for all!

I shared the 3 Steps to Get Things Done ClarityMap this past March.


I post both of these documents next to my goals so I can use these tools to effectively focus on what is important when I get lost.  Maybe it can help you, too.
