I messed up. I called this the 65th episode of the show because I recorded this one before the special Halloween episode you heard last week, but don’t let this slip distract you. I’ve got something very helpful to share with you today.
The idea for today’s episode came to me while I was running hill sprints in my neighborhood on one of my at-home training days. After running my first sprint, I had the idea that I should time myself. In that short 20-minute workout session, I was able to shave 12 seconds off of my total time. This got me thinking about how important it is to set objective goals.
So today, we’re going to talk about finding that sweet spot when setting objective goals. Let’s dig in …
What’s in the show:
- A little mindset tip for you – you don’t face resistance when you step down in status … (2:27)
- Why speed is an equalizer when it comes to dealing with goal anxiety … (5:35)
- You cannot improve that which you don’t measure … (7:21)
- Explaining the anxiety gap and why goals that are too big or too complicated increase anxiety and lead to analysis paralysis … (8:39)
- You need fear, but you also need these two things to make create goals that will drive you … (10:39)
I can’t harp on this enough. You might think, “Kyle, what’s the big deal? I’ll just push hard each time and try to make progress.” I’m telling you, if that’s what you want, then you’re destined to remain common. I want to be uncommon … Not normal. And the only way to get better at anything is to measure where you are, where you’ve been and to set objective, attainable goals for where you want to go.
