About

Galahad.cloud is a simple to use website designed to help you achieve your goals.

Goals

Galahad.cloud helps by ensuring you:

  • Clearly define what is it you are trying to achieve
  • Describe how it is to be achieved
  • Define the benefits that are expected when your Goal has been reached
  • List any resources that will be needed
  • Think about the risks, "nothing in life is risk free". What could go wrong? If it does, what will be the best action to take.
  • Decide when to start on your path to achieving your goal
  • By when it is to be achieved. Remember the famous adage "Rome was not built in a day", so be realistic.

Activities

To achieve your goal something is going to have to happen and this will involve a variety of activities. Galahad.cloud enables you:

  • Record each activity
  • Detail anything that needs to be done before it is started
  • Any special instructions
  • What resources will be required
  • Sort the activities into a logical order
  • Specify how long it will take to complete
  • When to start
  • Who is to responsible for completing the activity

The Finishing Line

To be successful you need to:

  • KEEP FOCUSED
  • Delegate whenever possible, allocating tasks to others gives you more time to do what you are best at
  • Ensure you know who is doing what when
  • Prioritize, decide what is important and what is not

The Galahad.cloud includes a diary to enable you to quickly check if everything is going to plan. If not, you can quickly adjust / reschedule as required.


SMARRT Goals

Here are some simple rules to help you set achievable goals.

Specific

Describe exactly what is to be achieved. It is important to understand that when any goal is reached something will have changed. It may be you have an extra qualification, a new kitchen or moved to a new office.

Measurable

Describe in detail the changes that are expected so that you can measure when your goal has been reached.

Achievable

Can you physically achieve your goal? What new skills will you need to learn? Do you have sufficient funds, resources, skillset and time?

Relevant

Step back, discuss your goal with trusted friends, family or colleagues. Is the goal you are setting yourself really relevant. Describe the benefits, who will actually benefit and are they really worth the effort required?

Realistic

Are you being realistic? It may be achievable but what is the cost, could your time and effort be better spent elsewhere? The PerformWork toolkit includes a project prioritisation tool that helps you work out where to put your efforts.

Timely

You need a clearly defined timeline. Establish how long it will take, set your start and finish dates. Are you allowing enough time? Too much time can result in loss of focus and becoming distracted by other activities. Build in a degree of urgency but not so much, as to make it stressful. It is a fine balance which you need to get right.

Finally

Before you start, ask others who have been down the same, or similar path, for their experiences and any advice. There may be some shortcuts or pitfalls that you are not aware of.

YOUR GALAHAD ROAD MAP

GALAHAD, a simple action planning / micro project management method.

Set your Goal

By clearly defining what it is you are trying to achieve will help you find the correct path to take to achieve that goal. Remember all goals should be SMARRT goals.

Activities

Identify the activities that need to be completed to achieve your goal. You need to include all activities, including checking other people's work and any essential gaps (e.g. waiting for paint / plaster to dry).

Logical Order

There may be several ways in which you can achieve your goal. You will have to consider the key factors of cost, available resources and time. Once you have decided on your path, put the activities into a logical order.

Assign

Your time is limited so if you can assign work to others it leaves you more time to do things you need to do.

How Long

How long is each activity going to take to complete? Be realistic, consider what might go wrong, re-check all delivery schedules.

Allocate

You are now ready to start by allocating the activities to those you have previously assigned to each one.

Diary

With any project, however small, a key element is the scheduling, Galahad makes it easy to diarise each activity so that you can monitor progress.

"A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words" Use GoalMaps.co to visualize the path to reaching your goal.


What is goal mapping?

Whether in business, or in our personal life, we frequently set ourselves goals.


Goal mapping is simply the process of documenting the things that have to happen to enable us to reach that goal. Yes, you can do it on a piece of paper or use a diary. But the GoalMaps.co website is designed to enable you to both store and visualise the route you have chosen to achieve your goals.


Use GoalMaps.co to visualise your path to your goal and Galahad.cloud to manage the activities required to achive your goal.


Unlike a piece of paper or diary, the GoalMaps.co website makes it easy to edit your route, add notes, links and pictures.


Multiple Maps - You can store several maps e.g.:

  • One covering your professional development path (you might want to share with your mentor, a trusted colleague or even your manager.)
  • One for your personal aspirations.
  • Another might cover financial or pension planning.

Presentation Tool - As well as goal mapping, GoalMaps.co can be used to quickly create impressive presentations.


Share Your Maps - You can share your maps with anyone with internet access, wherever they are in the world.


Upsizing - If your micro project or goal looks like it is going to become a small project you can use PerformWork.com to manage it without having to re-enter any data. See- upsizing
