Regardless of where you are in your life – high school, college or workforce – these 3 Actions can be put to the test for a Productive Outcome. It takes about 20 minutes, so ask yourself, “Do I have 20 minutes to put into creating the Outcome I want?” If so, get started:
1- Assess – Take five minutes to assess/write down where you are at this moment in time as well as what you want the outcome to be 4, 8 or 12 months from now. It might be a grade point average, a performance level on the field, resume’ building or job search.
2 – Create – Take 10 minutes to create a timeline in which you realistically identify points of progress. They may be grading periods, games or matches, or resume’ and interview intervals. Points of progress help to steer you toward the Productive Outcome and maintain focus.
3 – Visualize – Take 5 minutes to visualize yourself achieving the Outcome you want. Again, it doesn’t matter if the outcome is in the classroom, on the field, or in the board room, the important factor is to see you achieving that outcome. It is important to play that visualization over and over in your mind and reduce the negative influences we all experience day-to-day. Like the points of progress, visualizing keeps us focused with a positive energy.
