Today,I dedicate this blog to my colleague – Suhasini Ramakrishnan.I wouldn’t have done this without you.Thank you for everything.
I was trying to co relate a situation in life -to be precise -life hacking on goal setting and its application to a large format project with multi stakeholders & several dependencies.
The topic is Video marketing , is still too new of a marketing practice for there to be clear-cut tips that deliver results to every company – not that any marketing venture can say it produces immediate ROI, either. But a video requires an added amount of creativity, and marketers have to tap into their own minds in order to find success.

Life Hack on Goal Setting & Visualization Process : A creative video project
I have applied visualization techniques for personal goal setting visualization but had never tried it in the corporate life.
For once last year , for a client project at hand, I genuinely set Goals -What success would look like in the mind and Visualized it like a movie..
Visualization process : Sit in a comfortable position on a chair or cross legged.Wear comfortable clothing .Focus on your breathing.Slowly your mind will start to focus and then take the situation at hand : State the outcome loudly <A creative video project >
How the entire end-to-end engagement and each meeting ,Client and internal stakeholders react and discussion would materialize in a positive direction.How the agency would come up with a decent idea that would be accepted by the client.How the script would be developed,enacted,each stakeholder would work in harmony and what are tentative final dates & Go live date on Youtube.
Frequency : I would focus on this intent everyday for 5 mins till goal was achieved.
But along with there are few crucial steps involved in Goal setting .They are
- Visualize the goal
- Test the waters
- Share your vision
- Focus on one area at a time
- Keep long term or end objective in the mind
- Use reminders
- To Do lists everyday without fail till the task is accomplished
- Acknowledge your success and failure
- Appreciate & Recognise teamwork
- Stay Flexible
- Assess & re assess goals
- Aim High
- Persistently positive and active state of mind
- Reward Yourself
Outcome : A great story board video !!!
