“You can have it all, just not all at the same time.”- 01:42
Goal setting will always be tailored differently for each person because of everyone’s diverse circumstances. – 03:53
The first element of goal setting: relationships – 05:13
The second element of goal setting: health – 05:50
Falling into the ‘comparison cloud’ trap (i.e. comparing yourself to anothers’ highlights) – 06:37
The third element of goal setting: financial – 07:36
The fourth element of goal setting: fun. Remembering to enjoy life, putting ‘belly laughing’ as a to-do on your list – 08:05
The fifth element of goal setting: giving – 08:52
The sixth element of goal setting: learning – 09:46
The seventh element of goal setting: travel. It doesn’t necessarily need to be ‘travelling overseas/interstate’; replace the word with ‘adventure’ and doing something new – 10:18
The eighth element of goal setting: career. What do you want your career to look like over the next 12 months? What’s the most important thing? – 10:46
The Values Play-off: Identifying your top three goals of the eight, and putting it side-by-side with your other goals. E.g. “You can have health, but you can’t have fun…which one do you choose?” “Well, if I am healthy, fun will naturally come.” – 11:37
There has to be a constant innate questioning of “why do I want this and what will it actually bring to my life?” – 14:08
Turning SMART goals into SMARTER goals. E for Energy and R for Risk. – 17:06
Achieving goals requires energy. Putting 110% is unrealistic. You will need to source that anything beyond your 100% from someone else/ask for help – 17:36
People may find it difficult to measure where they’re at with their goals simply because they don’t like standing on the scales – 21:47
It’s possible to achieve above profit levels for a limited time, but it’s only unless you do the numbers consistently and track your results that you’ll be able to maintain meeting your goals – 22:50
