Planning and Goal Setting.....
Have you mapped out your goals for your career? Do you have
a 5 year plan? A 3 year plan? Maybe even just a "Next Year
Plan"...? If you don't, then you are in very good company,
because almost nobody makes planning and goal setting part of
their strategy for getting ahead. But if you haven't learned
how to map out career plans and set goals, then here is some
"food for thought"...
FOOD FOR THOUGHT...
80% of new business go bankrupt within 5 years, and the biggest
reason is lack of planning and not having set obtainable goals.
If you don't know which direction you are headed, then any
road will get you there.
The only way you can get lost, is if you a) don't
have a map, and b) don't ask for directions
Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.
DID YOU KNOW...
Did you know your church probably has some sort of 3 year or
5 year plan?
Did you know that the most successful businesses have something
called a Vision Statement or a Mission Statement and the top
guns in the company are held accountable (and paid according
to) how well they achieve these statements?
Did you know that if you want to start your own business, that
the banks will ask you for a "Business Plan" and without
this form of planning and goal setting, the banks won't touch
Did you know that the easiest way to get a raise, or a promotion,
or BOTH is to "ask" for it? You just have to be able
to show your boss that you have a plan in place and goals in
mind to prove that you are worth it, and you can receive a raise,
a promotion or BOTH within as little as 6 months from the time
you show your boss your plans and goals for advancement.
WHAT DO THE CHRISTIAN BUSINESS EXPERTS SAY?
Two of the best selling authors of all time,
Dr. Spencer Johnson (who wrote The One Minute Manager)
and Dr. Napoleon Hill (who wrote Think and Grow Rich)
both wrote books that deal with planning, goal setting and management.
In fact, Dr. Hill's book is the #2 best seller of
all time...do you know what the #1 Best Seller of all time is?
And although you may not have heard this in
a sermon, Sunday school, Bible school or at a Bible study, the
Bible has the most proven track record of any business book
in existence. And it makes sense, because as God created us,
God knows how we best function - who knows a software program
better than the one who designed the program? When it comes
to understanding human dynamics and how to "get ahead"
the One Person who can help you the most, is the Person who
was the Designer of these things called "humans" which
you will have to interact with each and every day of your career.
This conference will teach you how to make plans,
set goals, and develop a Vision and Mission Statement for your
life according to the principles and proven track record of
the #1 Best Seller of all time.
