This week on
Let’s Fix Work
I am going to be talking about
goals and goal setting. The topic is timely because I’m heading
down to Atlanta to meet with my business coach, Jesse Itzler. I'm
going to stand in front of him and my entire cohort of about 100
and I'm going to talk about why I didn't achieve my fourth quarter
goals in 2018. Yes, it’s going to be
hard. But, I am all
about owning up to why I didn’t make things work and learning the
steps needed to fix what wasn’t working.
In this episode, I share how and why I began working with Jesse. One of the things you will hear is about how Jesse coaches his clients using a system that prioritizes goals while focusing on your health, work, family, and creativity. When I began working with Jesse, I also wanted to layer that approach of prioritizing goals on top of a time management tracking tool and really learn how to spend my time doing the things that would move my life and my business forward. I wanted to put myself first.
At the beginning of the year, I
took a page out of the corporate playbook and I got my head out of
my ass. Once I started to have boundaries, I started to have goals.
I began setting standards for myself and 2019 came into focus. I've
been doing more writing, I've been doing more speaking and I've
been doing more business development. But yet, I've been missing
some goals because I'm
human. Today, I also
share insights and lessons about the best laid plans, because I’ve
learned that even when you map it out and you create rock-solid
If you want to hear about my successes and failures with goal setting, the importance of putting yourself first, and making an effort to at least try to attain a specific goal, then listen to this episode of Let’s Fix Work.
