#078: Replay of Live Q&A Call About Goal-Setting [Podcast]

Well, it’s that time of year again. Last year is officially over. The new year has just begun. The future is pregnant with possibility!

Goal Setting 2014

As you may know, a few weeks ago, I launched a new course called, “5 Days to Your Best Year Ever.” In addition to offering three free videos about goal-setting, I hosted a live Q&A call on the topic. We had over a thousand people on the call and dozens of great questions. In this episode, I share the recording of that call. I think you will find it helpful as you finalize your plans for this year.

During the call, I answered following questions:

  • How do you decide which goal is the most important and deserves the greatest allocation of your resources?
  • How do you implement a system (or action plan) to achieve your goals?
  • How many goals should I have? How many is too many?
  • How do you get re-motivated to pursue a goal you missed in 2013?
  • What are some of your personal growth goals?
  • How did your goals shift as you left a big corporation to pursue your entrepreneurial vision?
  • What apps do you use to track your goals?
  • How often should I be reviewing and adjusting my goals throughout the year?
  • How do you stay motivated in the “messy middle” when you want to give up?
  • How do goals and habits work together?
  • Which goal should I focus on first? the easiest or the most difficult?
  • Should you keep your goals private or share them publicly?
  • How do you handle failure? What if you set a goal and didn’t accomplish it?
  • Do you help your kids set goals?
  • How do goals fit into your life plan?

More than likely, you are going to live through 2014, so why not decide now it is going to be extraordinary? Why not make it your best year ever?

    Seems like the transcript download link isn’t set just yet. Thanks for this, Michael. And for the course! I’ve enjoyed working through the daily exercises.

      Thanks, Wayne. I meant to include a note about that.

      We are running a little short-staffed for the holidays, so it will likely be a few days.

    I’m getting a lot of value from all the goal setting content Michael, thank you!

      Thanks, Kimanzi. I am learning so much myself from everyone.

    I’ve grasped a lot from this live Q&A. I’m not in a place to participate with your 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever, but this Q&A is great and, by itself, will help with my goal setting for this year.
    Thanks a lot, may you be for the blessing and help of others in this year more than ever.

    Thanks Michael for sharing this, as I am based in Europe, while it was still a work week. I listen to it now, as a start to this great year!

    Michael, thanks for sharing this podcast. I really enjoyed it and got lots of good information about setting goals from this post. I love the fact that you said it was important to you to consider if what you were doing was God’s will. That is important to me as well.
