Here’s How I Go About Setting and Achieving My Goals

Written by:
Here’s How I Go About Setting and Achieving My Goals

If you want to know more about how I select, set, and strive toward goals, and how you can become a better goal setter and achiever yourself, you want to listen to this podcast.

I’m a big believer in the value of aligning the various parts of our lives toward goals.

In fact, I think it’s the only way to resist the forces of entropy that govern the universe and create a life worthy of our ancestors.

While spontaneity and short-term thinking certainly have their uses (“what song should I listen to right now?”), I firmly believe the better we can conceive of positive long-term outcomes and create and execute plans to produce those outcomes, the more rewarding, meaningful, and satisfying our lives will be.

For instance, many of the more significant goals we all share, like . . .

  • Building a great body
  • Improving our physical and psychological health and wellbeing
  • Becoming financially secure
  • Growing a successful career or business
  • Raising a healthy, harmonious family

. . . all require goal setting, long-term planning, sacrifice of present pleasures, and perseverance.

That’s probably not news to you, but what you may not know is some methods of goal setting are better than others. And that’s what this podcast is going to be all about.

Specifically, I’m going to share with you some practical ideas and tactics for making your dreams a reality—ones that are not only evidence-based but have also worked for me time and time again, and to which I ascribe a fair amount of my own successes and wins.

And no, I’m not going to just rehash platitudes about SMART goals, affirmations, meditation, or journaling. I’m going to go deeper than that.

As you’ll hear, this is an interview I did on another podcast—The Food for Fitness Podcast by Scott Baptie—and I’m reposting it here on my podcast because I thought you, dear listener, would enjoy it.
