Why S.M.A.R.T. Goals Are Dumb in 2023

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

In 1976, Steve Wozniak suggested to Hewlett Packard (his employer at the time) the idea of creating a personal computer. He was rejected, so he and his friend Steve Jobs got to work themselves on their dream of individual creativity for each user.

Martin Luther King had a dream that someday we would all be equal.

When Michael Phelps was 7 years old, he had a dream that there were no limits on what he could achieve.

Did these world-class performers meet all of the criteria of S.M.A.R.T. goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, timely)? No. They dreamt big and worked every day like that dream was possible, even through massive setbacks and failures.

Here are a couple of reasons why YOU should dream big too:

1.)  Broad to Narrow:

When you dream big, are more optimistic, and shoot for the stars. You are more aware of opportunities that present themselves. This broad awareness may lead you to be more confident and throw your hat...

  • Exhibit gratitude for the recipient of the conversation.
  • An inability to build trust will restrict your elevation in your career and in life.
  • Listen, be authentic, and align your actions with your words to build that trust.
  • Don’t be afraid to speak up and go against the grain when it’s a win/win/win for the other person, you, and your company.

The First Step to Unlocking Your Limitless Leadership

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the amazing Gina Tesla (Vice President, Sustainability and Social Impact, Coupa Software ), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:  

  • It is through times of loss or struggle, where you grow the most
  • Visualize yourself doing really well... visualize what’s going to happen.... visualize at the end how happy you feel or how proud others might feel of you, or how you feel like you really did a good job
  • Anything that you can do to take a little thing off of somebody’s plate is very beneficial
  • Take the time for yourself, take a breath, get your body in more of a receptive state, and say to yourself, "I can really see myself in this role, whether it’s a promotion, whether it’s presenting in a meeting" ... the first part is to really give yourself that permission to pause and visualize it
  • If you’re not comfortable talking to someone, write it in a journal...

Need a Q3 Pause & Plan? 🙋‍♀️

Need a Q3 Pause & Plan?

Are you feeling like the end of the year is closing in already!? It kind of is!

There is some exciting news at the end of this, so stick with me (or jump to the end, lol).

July and August are ideal times to pause, plan and possibly make a course correction for the remainder of the year. Let’s slow down for a minute, so we can speed up on what matters most.

While this video was shot in July, August is also the perfect time for your ‘pause and plan’! If you have not done so already, it’s time!

These are great to do every year to make sure you’re running in the right direction, running towards what matters most, and running in a way that you can sustain.

It’s a great time to take an honest inventory of how the year has gone up to this point and giving deep thought to how you’d like it to finish. It’s a time to reflect and celebrate the ‘wins’ as well as a time to shine a light on where to be more bold,...

Time to DE-CIDE on Your Next Best Move?

Time to DE-CIDE On Your Next Best Move?

Now that we are on the backside of 2022, it’s possible that it’s time for a new beginning, a shift, so we can finish the year as strong as possible. Maybe it’s a shift in your morning routine, how much you commit to speaking up, or a big shift in terms of how you lead, where you lead or in what capacity.

Is it time to DE-CIDE?

Phonetically speaking, “de” means “of” and “cide” means, well “death.” When you DE-CIDE, it’s the ‘death of’ any other option. Deciding is a commitment to move forward, even if you are not ready or are scared. If you gut and your heart says it’s a go, then let’s get it!

Oftentimes gaining pure clarity is the hardest part.

Why?

Simply put, we have a lot of baggage, past experiences, past influences, and stories we tell ourselves which gets in the way of us taking action.

The good news is that there is a process to get clear, so we...
