One of the key ingredients for successfully managing your time is identifying your goals. Goals are what will keep you motivated and focused – both essential to being productive. Goals that can happen quickly are called short-term goals. Goals that take a long time to achieve are called long-term goals. A short-term goal is something you want to do in the near future. The near future can mean today, this week, this month, or even this year. A short-term goal is something you want to accomplish soon. A long-term goal is something you want to go further in the future. Long-term goals require time and planning. They are not something you can do this week or even this year. Long-term goals usually take 12 months or more to achieve.

It often takes a certain skill to be able to view what's right in front of you and what's further ahead. Seeing your goals through these two lenses -- the micro and the macro -- enables you to see the entire picture and allows you to work towards attaining them.

About The Masters Series

WeTeachMe is our vision of the future of learning: inspired and impassioned learning that is run by the people, for the people.

In 2016, WeTeachMe officially became the biggest school in Australia, one giant leap towards our fundamental goal to be the biggest school in the world. As we start on our new journey to attain our next ambition, we begin with empowering thought leaders in every corner of the world by equipping them with the right tools and knowledge that will help them spark new ideas and bringing these ideas to life.

In accordance with this purpose, we have formed a new creative program to assist us in spreading our message into the world. We launched Masters Series by WeTeachMe where we could begin sharing the gifts, knowledge, and experiences of those who have achieved the unimaginable in their life against all odds to entrepreneurs who are still in the starting line.

To achieve this aim, we invite the best and the brightest, the industry movers and shakers, the well-known and influential members of the world of entrepreneurs to share their learnings and experiences in an unwavering effort to help those who are in constant search to find the answers. From creating thriving companies to taking your business to greater heights, we have everything lined up for you where you will learn from the best of the best.

05 November 2017 • Goal Setting 101, Let’s Get Direction!

Speaker was late and hardly spoke about the topic, was more a spiel on his business journey. I didn't leave with any tangible technique for goal setting across time periods of varied lengths.


03 November 2017 • Goal Setting 101, Let’s Get Direction!

Not bad. I would have liked a little less about the speaker and his business and a little bit more about ideas and suggestions on setting and achieving goals. Starting 30 minutes late was not ideal. Maybe a contingency plan is needed. A pod cast on the subject or something.
