How do you set your goals?

Today, I'm excited to share my approach to goal setting as an Avant-garde Entrepreneur. In this second part of the two-part series on goal setting and reflection, I take you through the highlights of how I set my goals, tips and advice you should consider when selecting your goals, and the things about goal-setting I wish I'd known sooner. 

Goal-setting is an art, and as such, it requires multiple reps and many failed attempts to master, especially when your goals as a change-maker, social entrepreneur, or climate activist go way beyond the scope of what a single human can fix. After many years and countless experiments, I've noticed three possible goal-setting scenarios. After facing each of them through different periods of my life, I've created a practical and quite effective way to solve the challenges they bring to the table. 

Tune in and listen to the twenty-first episode of Avant-garde Entrepreneur. You'll hear about the three goal-setting scenarios and how to deal with them, what I focus on when I set my goals, and what exactly involves any planning process. You'll learn practical tips to help you with goal-setting, the lessons I learned about changing and modifying plans, building a healthy relationship with the outcome, and much more.
