This weeks Spark and Mettle tasks were about setting goals for three of the aims on our life maps which we did a while back. ENJOY!!!
Aim 1: Become a Formula 1 driver (win Club100 2012)
Goal 1: Secure 6000GBP of funding in order to race club100 this year
Goal 2: Spend 8 hours studying the track before each round.
Goal 3: Ensure I match the minimum weight limit before the first race
Goal 4: Go for a run every morning before uni to increase my fitness before the first race
Goal 5: Speak to 5 experienced karters for useful information about the series
Difficulty: I don’t think I will find many of these goals difficult as have an action plan for each goal and have already started most of them. This is because I set out these goals at the start of the year and they are all going well at the moment. Although, while the goals seam ok, the aim will not be easy so I have got to keep focused.
Aim 2: Become a Formula 1 Engineer (Get a first in my course)
Goal 1: Complete every assignment 1 week before its deadline
Goal 2: Write out a 2 week revision timetable before every test (and follow it)
Goal 3: Spend 2 hours doing additional reading every week
Goal 4: Speak to 5 second years about how to prepare for next years modules
Goal 5: Rent a room in Hatfield so that I have more time to study
Difficulty: This is probably the most difficult aim of the three. Goal 1 I am pretty close to so it shouldn’t be a problem and Goal 5 I have been trying to do and with some success so far (haven’t found the right one yet). Goal 2 I have done before my A level tests (actually a lot longer than 2 weeks) and I was fine with it. At uni so far I have only had one test which I didn’t think required much revision, but from now one I will write timetables.
Goal s 3 and 4 I intend to do once I have more time, (i.e. I live in hatfield and my first competition has been organized)
Aim 3: Become a Multimillionaire (ensure my business caters for 600 entrants by the end of this year)
Goal 1: Ensure I advertise in at least 2 new unis every week
Goal 2: Ensure I advertise in at least 4 new tracks every week
Goal 3: Ensure that I gain at least 1 new distributer every week
Goal 4: Ensure I answer all emails with 48hours
Goal 5: Ensure that my company doesn’t make a loss in its first year
Difficulty: I have been working towards Aim 3 more than any other in the past few weeks. Goals 1,2 and 3 I will start from next week (when my flyers get printed) and I already have a list of numbers and some tracks and distributers lined up so it should be ok.
Goal 4 I have been more or less doing, apart form the emails which I need to give more though to, so I would say that with some more effort I can turn myself into a slick email answering machine. J
Goal 5 err, well I suppose it’s a mixture of planning, monitoring, hard work and praying!
Thanks, C ya!
