Episode 60: The Problem With New Year Goals

goal setting

Are you ready to throw in the towel for 2022? We may only have a few weeks left, but this last stretch can be your most productive and fruitful yet—IF you use it right!

Now is the perfect time to reflect on your goals. A lot of us focus on the big New Year resolution-type goals right about now, which is not a BAD thing, but it can make us forget about the goals we can still complete right now in the last little bit of 2022.

“But what kind of big goals can I accomplish in two weeks??” I hear you say. And to that I say: think SMALLER. 

Yes, smaller! 

Those huge, ambitious goals have their place, but they can actually be your kryptonite if you’re not careful. Think of all those well-intentioned New Years resolutions you’ve made over the years; how many have been abandoned by January 7th? 

That’s because huge goals can get us excited in the moment, but when the rubber hits the road, we lose steam quickly. We need something to fuel us along the way. When you make a goal with this mentality in mind, you’ll quickly see your mindset shift in the right direction.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The job of a goal (not just to excite, but to set up a plan of action)
  • How meeting smaller goals consistently set up the right kind of momentum and track record you need to succeed
  • How to set “Goldilocks goals” (not too big or overwhelming, but ambitious enough to make a difference)
  • How to recalibrate goals on-the-go to keep you moving in the right direction


Make the right kind of goals this year, and you’ll be ready for when 2023 finally hits; no more abandoned resolutions!
