Every year, millions of people eagerly set New Year’s resolutions only to abandon them shortly thereafter. Their intentions are good, but their resolutions and goals are doomed from the start because they don’t think them through.

In this episode, I attempt to help you avoid that fate by explaining how to set more effective goals for yourself. I discuss the importance of having a strong why and not bullshitting yourself on the real reasons certain goals feel important to you. I also talk about the differences between setting process-based goals and outcome-based goals and why you should assess your environment.

With better planning on the front end and continuous check-ins on the back end, you’ll be on your way to achieving your resolutions in the new year.
