Well Formed Outcome Master

1. Positively represented: Create a movie of your life beyond or after the challenge or problem. Towards, Away, and Change questions.

Why are you here? What specifically do you want to get out of your time?

Is there something greater than all of this which is even more important?

What is the opportunity for you in this?

What will the consequences be if you don’t get your outcome?

How do you feel about that?

On a scale of 0-10 how close are you to having your goal now?

How far away is this outcome? Is it in reach for you?

If you were to make this the best life changing experience you could have, what would you like to get out of it?

2. Specify the outcome in sensory based terms:

What specifically would be the behaviour, feelings etc that you will have when you have got your outcome?

What would you see, hear and feel etc when you have it?

3. Identify the contexts:

Where, when, how and with whom will you get this outcome?

4. Identify the steps and stages involved in reaching this outcome:

What are the steps involved in reaching this outcome?

5. Self initiated and maintained:

Is this outcome something that you can take responsibility for?

How are you going to do that?

Do you have it within your power and ability to reach this goal?

Can you initiate the actions to get started?

6. Identify resources:

What resources will you need to get this outcome?

Who will you have to become?

Have you ever had or done this before?

What prevents you from moving toward it and getting it right now?

7. Evidence procedure:

How will you know when the outcome has been achieved?

What will be the evidence for you?

What will be the effect on your career/life?

8. Check if it is compelling and motivating:

Is this outcome compelling?

How much do you feel this is compelling on a scale of 0-10 if 10 is absolute?

How much do you want this on a scale of 0-10 if 10 is absolute?

What would make this even more compelling for you?

How will we celebrate when we tick them off?

9. Make sure it is balanced and ecological:

When you think about having achieved these things……what impact will it have in your life?

What will you gain?

What will you lose?

Is it achievable?

Does it respect your health, career, relationships etc?

Is there any parts of you that object to actualizing this desired outcome?
