Episode 3: Is goal setting getting the best of you?



Is goal setting getting the best of you?

Whether you’re a goal getter or a no setter, there’s plenty to talk about when it comes to goals. 


Join Kat and Andi to consider the pros and cons of goal setting. How can we do away with “artificial” timelines, forced goals, and deflated motivation and make room for more inspiring ways of making progress on what we want?  Let’s kick-start this year’s goals with a change in the conversation and consider where you could alter your thinking on achieving the results you want to see.

  • Whether we’re talking about New Year’s Resolutions or the annual performance review, are goals really the best way to gain forward momentum?
  • Are New Year resolutions actually going to bring about a “whole new you?” And, by the way, what is with the obsession of always having to improve? 
  • How to practice giving ourselves (and others) more grace by recognizing everyone has their own “best way” of accomplishing something over time.
  • How can we connect with more intention (and frequency) to support each other in accomplishing the results we’re going for?
