Goals Redefined

Hey Crew – It’s great to be back with you.

For the past few weeks, I’ve spent a lot of free-time thinking about goals. I’ve been a goal setter since I got my first Franklin Planner in 1989. Back then, I learned the basics of goal setting that we all know & love: Determining values & what matters most, developing ways of creating task lists that would be the incremental steps that lead to accomplishing the goals. I don’t consider myself to be a “Type A” personality who’s always trying to get to the next ladder rung, I’m just a guy who’s trying to better himself everyday. Safe to say, we all are striving towards things that we believe to be important to us, so loosely defined, whether we write them down or not, we all have goals.

In this episode, I take a quick drive down my own Goal Setting Memory Lane and talk a bit on how I have historically looked at the process of goal setting. And then, I’ll take you down a bit of a back-road and introduce you to a concept that has changed the way I think about goals. For me, this has been a game-changer: I won’t be setting my goals the same way I used to. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on whether my new way of thinking might be something you’ll implement.
