A Fresh Perspective on Goals
One of the readings from this episode started by saying, “Goal setting is so commonly suggested that most people just assume it's the correct thing to do.” Now, a bit like the author, that sentiment doesn't sit very well with me and I've never been a huge fan of the traditional goal… but why not? Why do some people swear by them, and others loathe them? What's going on with them? Are they any use at all?
In this episode we picked GOALS apart, answered your questions and arrived somewhere quite special by the end of the 90 minutes. We structured the evening around the four steps I always use when helping groups and individuals to solve their problems via insight, rather than willpower:
- FOUNDATIONS: The problem with goals. What are we up against when setting & achieving them?
- MECHANICS: The fundamentals of how goals work: three very different perspectives
- IMPLICATIONS: Taking our newfound understanding of the MECHANICS and applying it to healthy, fulfilling goal setting
- TRUE NATURE: Stripping away the illusory self and examining change and goals from a deeper perspective
Sit back, relax and listen for insight, rather than a list of “how to's”. An entirely fresh perspective on goals awaits!
