“What I've found over the years is that there's a way to sort of lay these things out and describe where we're going with it, how it's different than what they've done before, and give people options within a sort of wider, systematic kind of philosophy of work.” - Tara McMullin


In this episode of The Widest Net Pamela chats with Tara McMullin, writer, podcaster and producer of What Works, about finding success and satisfaction in your daily practices. During their conversation, Tara outlines a comprehensive framework to change the way we approach goal setting. Tara has developed a practice orientation to replace an achievement orientation, which can cause exhaustion and burnout.


Here’s what you can expect from this episode: 

  • Exploring the validation spiral :what is it and how does it lead to burnout and dissatisfaction?
  • Examining the impact of systemic inequity: how do cultural, social and structural barriers make it harder for some to achieve their goals?
  • Comparing practice and achievement orientations: how can reframing our goals and activities to focus on the process, rather than the outcome, lead to more satisfaction?

Remember we all need each other - life and work is better together.
