My Successful Goal One of my greatest successes that I’ve every accomplished was, helping my old high school track team win the regions. The obstacle’s I had to overcome for me to help my team get the win was for me to go to practice after physical therapy because my knee was messed up from playing basketball. The reason I say this because I was playing basketball before track season started and I had a bad knee injury just a little bit. So I had to go to physical therapy to help strengthen my knee back to its full health. I also had to work mighty hard on my events which were 1600 meter run and the 800 meter run. The way I practice for these events was by running two laps in the beginning of practice very slowly to maintain things with my knee. Than I did my excises to losing up my body. Next I ran the bleachers to strengthen my leg muscles. Finally I ran my 1600 meter run, took me a two minute break. Then I stated my 800 meter run and I did this frequently until the big day came. As well as going to my physical therapy to make things go smooth before for my big day. When the big day came my teammates and me where a little bit nerves that day to, but we pulled it together. We went out there and did what we had to do to get the win. When it was time for me to run my team was a little cheerful for me as I ran my races that day. Eventually everything that I did helped, we got the win and it paid off in the end.

...Goals, every person should constantly have more and more goals planned out, and they should get tougher as they go. The goals should get tougher as you want to see yourself progress as a person. My goals are quite broad as of senior year. Get into a four year university, get a car, and begin my major of sports management. I chose to go into the field of sports because of my history of playing sports. I was a basketball and baseball star up until I stopped playing freshman year. Although I stopped playing I still have a passion for sports as any long term athlete would say, you never can really move on from sports, although when you stop playing you try to stay busy to take your mind of playing, the thought of playing is still in every athlete's head. I always had success in both sports I played, playing travel ball for each sport and getting most valuable player for almost every game in baseball, and scoring the most points every game in basketball. My success rate was higher than almost every other opponent I had to face off against. History classes is where I seek the most comfort in school. Which ever lesson i'm taught in history comes easy.

The Goal

...Executive Summary The benefits of the “Goal” novel book are numerous and the author highlights several aspects identifying problems and possible solutions to improve overall performance & management processes as an ongoing development. Alex Rogo, Manufacturing Plant Manager and the main character in the book reviews the fundamentals of redefining priorities in the process to achieve this goal. As I continued to read, the author elucidates diversified scientific, mathematic and upper level management methods. He identifies the problems as intrinsic constraints which are limiting people minds from moving forward and thinking out of the box. For instance, many businesses wasted labor hours and cost for studies and project reviews when the data is not applicable. Alex engages his team to list questions concerning daily operations, procedures and in some cases abandoned company policies. i.e., he replaced outdated methods with robot which required less overall labor hours but was costly. If the robot ran side by side with the old methods, the production could increase to almost double. The author embraces the magnitude of continues process improvement method for management processes in all different forms of businesses by relating scientific methods such as bottleneck “Theory of Constraints” to improve management processes, “Socratic Method” to lead people to the solution of future problems, and “Evaporating Cloud” to think laterally hence out of the box while utilizing......

...LANGUAGE Language offers a framework for meaning. Think about that powerful idea for a second. We understand the world through words. The words you use determine the way you perceive reality. If you call a stumbling block a “problem” or “a big mess” you will create a different emotional state within you than if you call the issue “an opportunity” or “a challenge that will only make me better.” I have the privilege, as a success coach, to work with many extraordinarily successful people from around the world. One of their core traits of greatness is that the vast majority of them understand the power of the word. They use world-class language. Not only do they refrain from using profanities, but they use the language of passion. They use the language of leadership. They use the language of possibility. They use the language of love. LITTLE BLACK BOOK FOR STUNNING SUCCESS 7 © ROBIN SHARMA WHO MADE SUCCESS A BAD WORD? Too many people believe that there's something wrong with aiming to be really successful. I've heard it a lot these days, the suggestion that if you strive for success, you must not be all that concerned with making a difference and being significant. It's almost as if being a go-getter is incompatible with being compassionate, socially conscious and good. Well here's my take on the “success versus significance” issue: an extraordinary life contains both. Without success, I have a sense that the best part of you will feel a little hollow.

The Goal

...Daagye Hendricks OM 516 The Goal 1. Summarize the book The Goal is a story about overcoming manufacturing problems as told through the eyes of a plant manager (Alex Rojo). In this story, Bill Peach (division vice-president), followed the status of a specific order number. He discovered not only was the order incomplete, but also seven weeks late and unassembled. Peach was not pleased and informed Mr. Roho that he only has 3 months to improve plant performance before it has to close its doors. Mr. Peach’s visit disrupts employee morale, causes skilled machinists to quit, and machines left inoperable with no one to service them. Peach gave Alex an ultimatum. He insists on change immediately. Alex’s team worked overtime, and the order was shipped off. When analyzing current plant practices, Alex contemplates why the plant is underperforming when it has the right people, technology, and overall a good facility. Although he cut costs as much as possible but his prices are still above the competition. Although materials are being released on time, orders are still incomplete and not shipped in a timely manner. Alex feels he has the right people, technology, processes, price and production capacity to strive in the industry…but cannot identify the problem. After reflecting on a discussion he had with a friend (Jonah a scientist), Alex realized that productivity is an action that brings a company closer to its goal. Jonah asks Alex a series of questions, without......

...1. Goals Essay I could start with some catchy motivational quote that gets people on their feet every morning and sends them out into the world to fight for a better, more successful you. This is what every person reads and is inspired by for a short time, but that’s not what I need to succeed. Dreams are roughly what people hope to come true, but also not what I need to succeed. Luck is for those who think winning and accomplishing something was not possible in their mind to begin with and is also not what I need to succeed. I need extensive incentive that drives beyond just a quote, a dream, or luck. I have three long term goals that form into one big picture motivated by my wife and children and will mold me into a role model for my family, a further successful employee at my job, and sturdier financial provider for my family. These three goals consist of completing my Associates of arts with a concentration in business, a bachelors of arts in business management, and advancing my career in the oil and gas industry. First, obtaining my Associates with a concentration in business is the shortest of my long terms goals. I have broken down this degree plan into three short term goals that will ultimately help myself achieve these goals by the summer of 2015. Each course I have viewed at Patten University is broken down into 8 units. I have set a goal to finish one unit every two days. This will approximately take two and a half weeks per class. Which leads to my second......

I specifically want to be an HR Business Generalist because it is more closely tied to the business and business strategy at Texas Instruments than some of the other human resources jobs there are.

I want to be in Dallas, Texas at Texas Instruments’ main office where I can get the most enriching experience. However, after I have learned as much as I can at the Dallas office and when I am comfortable with my position, I want to move to the Houston office because Houston is where I grew up and it is where I want to raise a family. In five year, I want to be working in the human resources department at Texas Instruments. I want to start out in their Compensation position within the HR department. My major is in accounting and I like to work with numbers, so I believe the Compensation position would be a good starting point for me.
