058: Setting goals for 2017

The start of a new year is the perfect time for you to think about what you want to get out of the year ahead, and set some goals. In this episode we get super honest and share our audience building, teaching, learning, financial, content and health goals for 2017. And of course we give some advice for setting your own goals for the coming year. Be ambitious, and let’s make it a good one!

"Our goals overlap quite a lot. As you work on one, it feeds into another and they all overlap in quite a harmonious way."

Femke


Key takeaways

Sorting your goals into categories helps you set something to aim for in each area of your life.

 

You should be ambitious when setting your goals so that if you reach them, you can feel satisfied. Don’t just keep moving the goalposts. Instead; when you reach a goal think about the next step, and set a totally new goal.

 

You can’t hustle from the grave. As much as we want to achieve great things with our careers and side projects, it’s important to take time for yourself and to be healthy. So make that a priority too.
