“5-Step Plan” to benefit from the SkillsFuture Credit ($500)

Many of you are probably thinking of  How to make the best use of the $500 SkillsFuture Credit?

(There is no universal solution in solving a problem, the best solution is the one which serves best – the objective)

Key to the above question is to identify the “Objective”. i.e. What is the Objective? What do I want to achieve?

A recommended approach is to use the GetSmart 5-Step Plan below:

Step 1. Identify the problem – e.g. Dealing with my SkillsFuture Credit ($500)

Step 2. Get the facts, and set the Objective/s – e.g. What is my current situation? Who am I? What are my existing qualifications and experience? What do I want to be in 2 years time?What do I want to be in 5 years time? etc…

Step 3. Provide possible solutions – i.e. Ask yourself the 5-W’s and 1-H questions – What? Why? Where? When? Who? and How? e.g. What do I need to do to achieve my objective? Why do I need to achieve that? What are the benefits if I do? What are the losses if I don’t? etc… and all other questions leading towards deriving at some possible solutions to achieve your “objective”, and bearing in mind that the best solution is the one which serves best – the objective.

Step 4. Take Action – Be mindful to take action, and repeat your performance.

Step 5. Check Results, and Follow-up – Be mindful to check results, and follow-up to ensure that the actions taken are achieving the set “Objective”

The GetSmart 5-Step Plan is a systematic approach in handling problems of all kinds, shapes, and sizes.

Step 4, and Step 5 would include setting Smart Goals to ensure that your Objective is specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-targeted.
