Goals: Make It Happen. Greg Scheinman

How can we make goals for ourselves and achieve them? How specific do we have to make them? Goals vs resolutions? We need to create a specific game plan, or else we will just be floundering. But when do we know if a goal is too big? Focus on the community you hang out with.

Greg joins us for this motivating New Year episode to discuss how to set and actually achieve your goals, how to change your habits, how to maximize your life, the importance of your community, and more. 

“Whatever your goal is: purpose, process, payoff. There has to be something quantifiable to go towards or you’re going to struggle with actually achieving that goal because you don’t really know what is going to make that goal a reality.” 

“People are going to make a lot of resolutions like they always do and then they’re going to break them at some point because they haven’t really quantified what it looks like to maintain them.” 

“You develop these habits, we all develop these habits, good, bad, whatever they are, that becomes our default of how we operate. When we get outside of our personal operating system, it doesn’t feel great. Just like a computer or business, we can continue to update our operating system and we should.” 

“Mediocrity happens by default, maximization happens by design. None of this happens by accident; they’re conscious choices and decisions we make.” 

“Anything and everything that you want in life is absolutely available and happening out there. You’ve just got to put yourself out there and into it.” 

“You don’t have to think about completely reinventing yourself. What you can do is you can agree to release yourself to the process, to just start it, to taking that first step and then another one.” 

“Believe that you can make change. Whatever that is. Believe that whatever you want to do or have in your life is not only possible but highly probable if you are willing to commit to the process and do the work.”
