Planning and organizing skills are useful throughout life, both personally and at work. Whenever we have a major objective, we need to plan the steps that have to be taken to achieve it and organize the resources, actions and time required to accomplish each step.
In planning to achieve an objective we must first identify it and do research to find out what steps to take a long the way and what resources will be needed. Each step is a goal in its own right. Meeting a series of small goals helps show clear progress towards the objective and enables us to break down a complex end result into manageable chunks. The successful attainment of each new goal thus helps to maintain the momentum towards the end.
It is important to set precise goals with dates, times and amounts so that achievement can be measured. Next establish the priorities to direct your attention to the most important ones. Take care to set goals over which you have as much control as possible to reduce the risk of not achieving them.
