Goal Setting and Getting Things Done Online Course 

Module One - Getting Started 

Obtaining personal and career targets, on the other hand, necessitates preparation and execution. Training how to handle time and set ambitious expectations can improve a person's chances of achievement in all aspects of life. Following the guidance in this course would help them improve efficiency and accomplish their goals.

Learning Objectives:

  • Overcome procrastination
  • Manage time effectively
  • Accomplish important tasks
  • Self-motivate
  • Create SMART goals

Module Two - Overcoming Procrastination (Part 1) 

Procrastination happens when people postpone activities that they find stressful. They are accused of procrastination if they perform other work-related tasks instead of the ones they dislike. Unfortunately, procrastination would be a hindrance to their long-term performance. They can resolve procrastination if they have the right skills.

Eat that frog

Anything that an individual does not want to do is represented by the frog. Basically, they should finish their most anticipated activities first. Having them out of the way would give them a feeling of satisfaction that will prevent them from procrastinating. 

Just do it

If the frogs and barriers have been established, the only solution is to take action. Make avoided chores a part of one's regular activities. 

The 15-minute rule

A specific explanation for failure to finish a task is a lack of time. People often underestimate the time it takes to finish tasks, so the 15-minute rule helps them to time their task effectively. 

Chop it up

Procrastination may also be influenced by the size of a project. A big task will quickly become daunting. To conquer procrastination, break the broad project into smaller projects.

Module Three - Overcoming Procrastination (Part 2)

Procrastination is something that can happen at any moment. It is not sufficient to describe which project is being avoided. They must take constructive measures to minimize the temptation to procrastinate. They would be able to reduce the amount of time they spend procrastinating each day if they take care of their routine and work environment. As a result, they will be able to boost their competitiveness and help them meet their objectives.

Remove distractions

These challenges are procrastination temptations. An individual would be on the right track to overcoming procrastination if as many distractions as possible are eliminated. 

Start small and build

Procrastination is not a habit that develops overnight. It is also impossible to avoid procrastinating overnight. Anticipating a fast turnaround would just end in disappointment. 

Reward yourself

People procrastinate because they do not find such things appealing. Procrastination becomes a benefit in and of itself. To overcome procrastination, they must incorporate an incentive scheme for mission completion. 

Set realistic deadlines

Schedules and deadlines can assist an individual in being concentrated and avoiding procrastination. Nevertheless, when setting targets, they must be practical. Unrealistic deadlines will potentially lead to procrastination.

Module Four - Four P's of Goal Setting 

Setting goals are important for getting things done. However, not all goals are successful. The way an individual communicates their goals will decide whether or not they accomplish them. When setting goals, it is important to note the Four P's in target setting. They should be positive, personal, possible, and prioritized.

They Need to Be Positive

When establishing goals, bear in mind that they should be positive. This means concentrating on what a person needs to accomplish rather than what they really want to prevent. 

They Need to Be Personal

Goals must represent a person's dreams and desires as they are made. Ineffective goals are those that aren’t really personal to the individual. 

They Need to Be Possible

Setting unrealistic expectations sets a person up for failure and dissatisfaction. Developing potential priorities necessitates that they be truthful with themselves. 

They Need to Be Prioritized

Goals can become daunting as they are brainstormed. A person would almost certainly have more goals than they can bear. This is the moment for them to identify their objectives.

Module Five - Improving Motivation

Goals can be inspirational, but the inspiration can disappear in the context of daily life. It is important to find ways to inspire yourself in order to accomplish one's goals. They can't really depend on outside inspiration. Implementing various motivational techniques such as recalling peak times, writing down milestones, and gamification can help them remain concentrated and optimistic.

Remember Peak Moments

Good memories are highly effective motivators. Remembering peak times gives a person a sense of pride and inspires them to search out a certain sensation again. 

Write Down Your Goals

Recognizing a person's aspirations is insufficient to keep them motivated; they must be set down. Jotting down goals serves as a visual guide of where they are headed. 

Use Gamification

Gamification incorporates internal and extrinsic motivation by the mechanism of game mechanics. Unlike online gaming, which can be a hindrance to productivity, gamification can potentially help a person accomplish their goals. 

Track Your Progress

Monitoring someone's success helps them to see the successes as well as which places need more commitment. Furthermore, watching the progress they made will encourage them to keep up the good work.

Module Six - Wise Time Management

The ability to plan one's time is important for getting things done. Without good time management, it is possible to get sidetracked with unimportant activities that do not assist in achieving objectives. It would be able to handle the time wisely if the following techniques are followed. They will assist in meeting expectations while reducing stress and making their lives easier.

Urgent/Important Matrix

It is critical to distinguish between urgent and relevant tasks when managing time. Urgent tasks are those that must be completed immediately, while essential tasks are those that are relevant to particular priorities. 

The 80/20 Rule

Some successful people suggest upholding the 80/20 Rule. According to the 80/20 law, only 20% of our acts are responsible for 80% of our progress.

Utilize a Calendar

Calendars are important for good time management. Calendars are well-known instruments, but they are not often employed efficiently. 

Create a Ritual

Rituals can aid in time control. Rituals are repeated acts that do not need to be planned.

Module Seven - Tips for Completing Tasks

It is simple to start tasks, but it is much more challenging to finish them. Life will often find a way to divert a person's attention away from their duties. Despite how simple it is to postpone tasks and procrastinate, most people have a backlog of tasks that need to be done. When the number of items on this list increases, so does the level of stress.

One Minute Rule

The one-minute rule states that if a goal can only take one minute, the person can finish it right away. 

Five Minute Rule

The five-minute rule is straightforward: leave at least five minutes among planned activities. 

Break Up Large Tasks

An individual will stay motivated when working if they split these activities down into their simple steps. 

Utilize Technology

Technology has created an opportunity to complete assignments faster. Computer applications and online systems aid in the management of projects, the development of alerts, and the tracking of results.

Module Eight - Increase Your Productivity

Enhancing one's time management techniques would help them become more effective. They would be able to accomplish their targets more effectively as they improve their efficiency. It takes time to increase productivity. However, once they continue to adopt various techniques, they will learn which solutions are successful and will increase their personal and professional effectiveness.

Repeat What Works

The trick to progress is figuring out what happens and then repeating behaviors with the right methods. 

Get Faster

It may sound trivial, but the sooner a person understands, the more effective they will be. Training and dedication can assist them in increasing their pace on activities that they undertake on a daily basis.

Remove “Should” from Your Dictionary

A person's words have a stronger effect on their life than they can understand. 

Build on Your Successes.

If an individual begins small and builds on their accomplishments, success will become a cycle.

Module Nine - To Do Lists

To-do lists have become commonplace in everyday life. To-do lists are pointless if they are not fully completed. Very often, people make lists that they never get around to finishing. There are several features that all powerful “to do” lists have in common.

Focus on the Important

The most basic mistake individuals make while making to-do lists is making them too lengthy. It is difficult to put any imaginable job on a "to do" list. 

Chunk, Block, Tackle

  • Chunk
  • Block
  • Tackle  

Make It a Habit

To be accurate, "to do" lists must be created on a daily basis. Making "to-do" lists can become a routine for everyone. 

Plan Ahead

To-do lists cannot help an individual accomplish their goals until they are carried through with. Lists are just examples of what has to be achieved before they are finished.

Module Ten - Smart Goals

Following the guidelines for SMART goals when setting goals would make it easier to accomplish. SMART goals are those that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. There is a better chance of success as the principles of SMART goals are incorporated.

Specific

Goals should be specific. Individuals would be unable to accomplish their objectives if they are too large and generic so preparation would be too difficult. 

Measurable

In order to be effective, goals must be measurable. A measured target determines whether a goal is met by answering the question "how often?" or "how many?". 

Attainable

Attainable goals must still be set. It is essential for a person to set goals that are daunting but also achievable.

Realistic

It is important to establish realistic goals. Realistic expectations are relative to a person's skills. 

Timely

Establish targets and clear time limits at all times. Since general objectives do not specify a time limit, an individual can continue to follow goals that they should abandon.

Module Eleven - Mistakes Will Happen

Mistakes are an unavoidable part of life. It is impossible to truly develop and understand without them. When errors are made, the key is to recover, learn from them, and move on. When a person learns from their mistakes, they will be less likely to make the same ones again. They would also be able to prevent others from committing same errors they did.

  • DOROTHY HEIGHT - Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals.

Some successful people suggest upholding the 80/20 Rule. According to the 80/20 law, only 20% of our acts are responsible for 80% of our progress.

Utilize a Calendar

Calendars are important for good time management. Calendars are well-known instruments, but they are not often employed efficiently. 

Create a Ritual

Rituals can aid in time control. Rituals are repeated acts that do not need to be planned.

Module Seven - Tips for Completing Tasks

It is simple to start tasks, but it is much more challenging to finish them. Life will often find a way to divert a person's attention away from their duties. Despite how simple it is to postpone tasks and procrastinate, most people have a backlog of tasks that need to be done. When the number of items on this list increases, so does the level of stress.

One Minute Rule

The one-minute rule states that if a goal can only take one minute, the person can finish it right away. 

Five Minute Rule

The five-minute rule is straightforward: leave at least five minutes among planned activities. 

Break Up Large Tasks

An individual will stay motivated when working if they split these activities down into their simple steps. 

Utilize Technology

Technology has created an opportunity to complete assignments faster. Computer applications and online systems aid in the management of projects, the development of alerts, and the tracking of results.

Module Eight - Increase Your Productivity

Enhancing one's time management techniques would help them become more effective. They would be able to accomplish their targets more effectively as they improve their efficiency. It takes time to increase productivity. However, once they continue to adopt various techniques, they will learn which solutions are successful and will increase their personal and professional effectiveness.

Repeat What Works

The trick to progress is figuring out what happens and then repeating behaviors with the right methods. 

Get Faster

It may sound trivial, but the sooner a person understands, the more effective they will be. Training and dedication can assist them in increasing their pace on activities that they undertake on a daily basis.

Remove “Should” from Your Dictionary

A person's words have a stronger effect on their life than they can understand. 

Build on Your Successes.

If an individual begins small and builds on their accomplishments, success will become a cycle.

Module Nine - To Do Lists

To-do lists have become commonplace in everyday life. To-do lists are pointless if they are not fully completed. Very often, people make lists that they never get around to finishing. There are several features that all powerful “to do” lists have in common.

Focus on the Important

The most basic mistake individuals make while making to-do lists is making them too lengthy. It is difficult to put any imaginable job on a "to do" list. 

Chunk, Block, Tackle

  • Chunk
  • Block
  • Tackle  

Make It a Habit

To be accurate, "to do" lists must be created on a daily basis. Making "to-do" lists can become a routine for everyone. 

Plan Ahead

To-do lists cannot help an individual accomplish their goals until they are carried through with. Lists are just examples of what has to be achieved before they are finished.

Module Ten - Smart Goals

Following the guidelines for SMART goals when setting goals would make it easier to accomplish. SMART goals are those that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. There is a better chance of success as the principles of SMART goals are incorporated.

Specific

Goals should be specific. Individuals would be unable to accomplish their objectives if they are too large and generic so preparation would be too difficult. 

Measurable

In order to be effective, goals must be measurable. A measured target determines whether a goal is met by answering the question "how often?" or "how many?". 

Attainable

Attainable goals must still be set. It is essential for a person to set goals that are daunting but also achievable.

Realistic

It is important to establish realistic goals. Realistic expectations are relative to a person's skills. 

Timely

Establish targets and clear time limits at all times. Since general objectives do not specify a time limit, an individual can continue to follow goals that they should abandon.

Module Eleven - Mistakes Will Happen

Mistakes are an unavoidable part of life. It is impossible to truly develop and understand without them. When errors are made, the key is to recover, learn from them, and move on. When a person learns from their mistakes, they will be less likely to make the same ones again. They would also be able to prevent others from committing same errors they did.

Words from the Wise

  • GEORGE S. PATTON - You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.
  • LES BROWN - If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you.
  • DOROTHY HEIGHT - Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals.
  • THOMAS MANN - People's behavior makes sense if you think about it in terms of their goals, needs, and motives.
