Creating Resolutions that Stick
The point of the video is to get you thinking outside the box and step away from making S.M.A.R.T. goals. I think S.M.A.R.T. goals are stupid because they stop you from dreaming big, thinking creatively and playing full out. If you know you can achieve your goals, how much ingenuity does it take? How much are you going to go outside of your comfort zone? Probably not a lot and that’s why unsuccessful people find themselves bored and frustrated with life.
Successful people set big, hairy, audacious goals — goals that will be worthy of their time and worthy of the possibility of failure. Successful people put their butts on the line for something big because playing out there on the skinny branches of life is exhilarating — it’s where our creative juices begin to flow. It’s where ideas are hatched and connections are made.
After you watch this video and do the workbook exercises, you will be deeply connected to your values, you will have identified what’s important to you and will have created big, hairy audacious goals that are worthy of putting your butt on the line.
