SMART Goals Enhanced

Often hear people talking about ‘SMART’ goals, 

Here’s my version which I designed because I found when I wrote a goal down, it was a sure fire way for me not to achieve them. 

In fact a lot of Personal Development tools are like this. 

If you set a goal, then if you don’t achieve it, then you’re not using enough positive mental attitude OR you’re not working hard enough which could be the answer to some situations but it can’t be the complete answer. 

What I’ve found with clients, is that whilst designing their lives, you never can predict the outcomes because planning a goal is not the same as actually living the goal. 

We write lists, but lists and goals are like maps and the maps are not reality. 

Life is a lot more complex and dynamic. 

So here’s some different questions which might bring some of the reality of complexity back into the designing stage. 

Even then you might not find yourself achieving the goal. Along with beliefs, have goals but hold them loosely is a great bit of advice.

Jump Off The Stoopid Bandwagon

The challenge is that the UK, like many around the world are taking the capitalist system too seriously.

Gödel’s incompleteness theory states that any model of the reality is incomplete and must be continuously refined/adapted in the face of new observations…..

Unfortunately the winners of this paradigm don’t want the rules to change out of their favour. So they compete for power positions in politics, corprotocracy, media, military-oil complex, then rip the ar*e out of it.

We’re just going to have to sit by and watch it all unfold unfortunately, Revolution and civilisation collapse…Its been happening for centuries.

Since tech gave some bloke an advantage which kick-started the agrarian revolution.

One community that has survived various dynasties are the San people. A hunter -gatherer community that live in equality with each other and nature. They employ STOP’s to overcome power. Usually satire, much like the TV show of ‘Have I Got News For you!’

If, as a business owner, you want to jump of the stoopid bandwagon and build an organisation which is sustainable, socially just and a satisfying place for people to work and co-exist. Create an employee owned organisation. Take some of the the stress out of running a business and collaborate as a community.

That’s actually how we’re designed to live and operate.

Be an inspirational leader on a mission (ILM) instead of a dopamine fuelled mercenary with a lust for profits and power at the expense of people and the planet.

Mentoring is a powerful way of imparting knowledge and developing people within organisations.

Mentoring is a powerful way of imparting knowledge and developing people within organisations.

The word Mentor originates from Homer’s classic poem, ‘The Odyssey’, describing a time around 1200BC when Odyssus was preparing to travel a great distance. He asked ‘Mentor’ to act as a teacher, guide and friend to his son, Telemachus.

Many famous people who have enjoyed success have had the benefit of a mentor relationship. Oprah Winfrey looked on the writer Maya Angelou as a trusted mentor.

The mentor – mentee relationship is also referred to in the Hypocratic Oath: ‘To hold my teacher in this art equal to my own parents; to make him partner in my livelihood;’

Mentor programmes in organisations are beneficial to all parties and increases retention within organisations.

Self Awareness in Team and People Development

Leadership Skills in Developing Your Team

Self awareness is important when developing your team.

You’ll be naturally stronger and comfortable supporting learning at certain stages in the learner’s journey.

Don’t try to be all things to all people, you’ll be spreading yourself too thinly.

What Hunter Gatherers – ‘The First Affluent – Society’ Can Teach Us About Surviving a Changing World Order!

Ray Dalio the famous investor said it’s a good idea to look back into history to understand and predict the future. It’s an insightful talk (I’ll leave a link in the comments) in which Ray outlines the various changes to world orders that happen around every 250 years (not 500 as I say in the video) and if we want to stop the downfall of the west as China increases it’s power & influence, then we’d better be nice to each other and not spend as much as we earn!

I think whilst his analysis is excellent and solutions useful, it doesn’t take into account the evolutionary aspect of why the human race is heading towards an ecological collapse. It’s dominance hierarchy.

It seems that as soon as founders, entrepreneurs & managers get positions of status, wealth & power, then they switch-on their ‘Inner Chump’.

Your inner chump is competitive and controlling, harmful to the ecosystem, because it is driven by unconscious bias, motivated by fear & greed and paradigm blind and suffers inertia to change.

The hunter gatherers it appears, have the answer. They don’t stand for greedy indivduals because they understand the damage it does. Damage that’s all too plain to see in our leaders. Have a watch:
