Have challenging goals where the path forward is unclear? The steps are not linear? Scott presents a doable goal setting process to identify what needs to be true to reach your goals and a process to take action.
Work backwards first
Start with writing down your desired goal, then ask yourself ‘what needs to be true to make this happen?’. Step 1 is the answer to the question.
The next goal setting step is to ask of Step 1, ‘what needs to be true to make this happen?’. This becomes Step 2.
Repeat the process until you are one step away from where you are today.
Then work forward
In the Plan -> Action -> Results process, use the Steps above in the planning phase to map out actionable action tasks.
