Training Tips of a Chief Master
#3 – The Wonderful Chart
The path to success will take you through these three steps:
- create SMART goals
- write them down
- use a chart to monitor progress
We all know about SMART goals. Write down your goals so each one meets these criteria:
Most instructors are already using SMART goals. But my emphasis today is the “CHART.” A chart is a simple tool which you use to track your progress on a daily / weekly / monthly basis. The chart helps you organize the tasks you need to complete and it also serves to motivate you as you “check off” tasks completed.
Don’t underestimate the power of this tool. Check out these samples from my career. Make your own and then celebrate your progress. I provide more detail in the video below.
