How to find time in September. Long term planning

Welcome to How to find time in September!

At this time of year we still have some time to achieve goals we set at the beginning of the year. Long term planning will help us get from where we are to where we want to be.

This month I am going to tell you about 3 different ways of planning to achieve goals. As I explain in the video, different approaches are suitable for different types of goals. 

Tools and guidance

After you have watched the video, decide what approach will help you best. 

Do you know what you need to do to get to your goal?
Then use a work breakdown structure.
You can find a good description here.

Is it a goal you don't really know how to achieve?
Use a problem statement and an issue tree.

Is it a goal, or even a dream, where progress is more important than meeting a specific deadline?
Use the Vision-Next Step approach I describe in the video.

I hope you will enjoy finding time!
