Episode 48: NOT Goal Setting for Dummies


Goal setting for success – how is it different from the typical goal setting tips and tricks you hear all over the place? Well, as usual, my approach takes into mind your deeper motivation and mindset. Getting clear on why your goals matter, the potential consequences if your goal is not met, and the longer-term benefits of achieving your goal can be powerful motors to propel you to success.


Why do you want to start working out? Mitigating the risk of heart disease, remaining independent in your older years and better enjoying your life are deeper and more powerful reasons than “my doctor told me to” or “I want to look better.” Why do you want to build wealth? Passing a legacy to your children or personal charity and securing time freedom are profoundly more motivating than “I want to buy more things or “I want to be better than my brother.”


Join me today as I walk through my tried and tested approach to setting (and achieving!) goals that really matter to you.
