Jan 30, 2023 | 0 comments

Are you struggling to achieve your goals?

Many people set goals, but find it difficult to actually make progress towards them — whether due to a lack of motivation, unclear priorities, or not having a plan in place to break down the goal into smaller, manageable steps. Without a clear plan and the right mindset, it can be easy to get sidetracked and lose sight of the progress we have made, leading to a feeling of frustration and disappointment. This is why it’s essential to have a clear plan in place and the right tools and mindset to make progress toward our goals and ultimately achieve them.

Today’s guest, Jay Papasan, co-author of The One Thing, shares powerful insights on how to zoom out and think about your long-term aspirations, and how to break down your goals and overcome roadblocks by forming habits and utilizing tools like our 4-1-1 and GPS. Additionally, he emphasizes the importance of surrounding yourself with a supportive community to help you achieve your goals.
