Formalize Goals

Okay, so we will start off a little light and maybe even irrelevant to the topic at hand. But, I wanted to show it because I love "despair".

Anyways, when you are in the dreaming process and you are trying to make the dream a reality, there is a time and a place for goals. It is not enough to just have them out there - but you need to list them and formalize the goals.

Currently in our ministry, we are in the process of some big changes. We are going to be moving from one ministry to three ministries. That in itself is going to be a goal. We will "formalize" this by putting it in "concrete". We will state to our team and to our students and to our parents the following:

We are making a switch from one ministry to three ministries and these ministries will be "over-lapping". This new change will be implemented by August of 2007.

Now each of the three ministries will have individual goals within their ministries. Each group will state 3 - 5 goals that they hope to accomplish during the 2007-8 school year.

If you do not formalize the goals, they will not happen. Write them down, share them with indiiduals and implement ministry components that will make the goals a reality.
