The first framework, Focus, provides a clear view of your life and work at different levels.

This graded model consists of conversations to have with yourself or other people to create perspective.

The top level Values – identifies the things that are really important to us, the paradigm that motivates us.

The next level, Goals, aligned to the values, can be broken into long-term and short-term.

While Goals are future, the next level, Roles, is very current.  Create a map of all roles, and a subsequent inventory of job descriptions or responsibilities.

From Roles come Projects – small or large, but all having outcomes and an end point.  They could be broken down further into sub-projects (and sub-sub-projects) but they finally end with …

Tasks – actionable items that would make their way to a to do list.

Many productivity models include this layered approach.   Navigating these layers effectively increases clarity when deciding what to do next.

Focus Framework Overview

While the  framework starts with Values, our live sessions begin with Roles, moving down and leaving the upper levels for quiet reflection after the event.  You can decide where to start and go up and down as you please.

If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.
