‘Tis the season for reflection! This episode I’m kicking off with a review of my 23 goals for 2023, both my achievements and setbacks, and exploring the reasons behind why some goals weren’t met - and whether I’ll be giving them another crack next year. I’m sharing insights into my own personal growth over the year, the challenges I faced, and the emotions tied to achieving my goals. I also share personal highlights, such as overcoming the mental hurdle of getting a new car and the importance of taking breaks. Whether they’re fun activity based like rock climbing, or important super contributions, goals should be made for yourself!
Reflecting on the benefit of adding a level of accountability to goal setting,
The importance of flexibility in adjusting goals, especially when faced with unexpected challenges,
Overcoming mental hurdles in financial decision-making.
“Even if you do not share your life and your goals with the internet and listeners and things like that, I really encourage you to just set a list of 24 things that you want to do, even if those things aren't even necessarily hard, just things you want to do."Emma [02:42]
“I have really found that it's pushed me to saying ‘come on, we've got three months left of the year. Which of these can you do?’ Or even just take a step closer to some of them."Emma [03:00]
“I'm pretty happy with having this list because I'm like, you know what I'm going to put I'm going to find $1,000, or if it's 500, I'm going to put it in there so that I have done something for future me."Emma [13:12]
