Check out this article in Salon.com where I am quoted about goals, beliefs, and values:
This article addresses why people may experience distress about their goals.
While the article focuses mainly on millennials, I think many of its points apply to all of us.
To avoid goal conflict, your goals need to be aligned with your:
- authentic self
- your most-important values and
- most significantly, your conscious and unconscious beliefs
For example, whenever I make an offer to do a program or group, I make sure my offer aligns with my work values which include, “fun, using my gifts and making a contribution.”
Do your goals match your values & beliefs? I’d love to hear!
