Reenergize those Resolutions!: 4 tips to keep your 2020 goals on track
Set learning or change goals instead of achievement goals
Pretty well known 1979 Harvard study of MBA students - those with learning oriented goals had higher GPAs on average and reported a better experience overall in their programs
Generally, we feel more positively about learning or acquiring than we do about thresholds (why you think we love a good YouTube tutorial so much?)
Achievement - I want to pass my licensure exam; Learning - I want to study 3 therapeutic theories outside of the one I love and use regularly
Achievement - I want my locs to reach mid back this year; Learning - I want to figure out which oil helps my locs retain moisture
Achievement - I want to read one book a month; Learning - I want to discover my favorite Toni Morrison novel this year
Make it a challenge rather than a threat
Threat - I need to practice for my defense or I will fail it; Challenge - I need to prepare to have the type of defense I want
Threat - I need to lose weight or I will get diabetes and have a heart attack; Challenge - I want to find healthy habits that will support my wellbeing
Make it meaningful
Tie it to a personal value, bc then its internalized
Write it down!
Writing encourages better memory recall bc it involves neuro senors and fine motor skills. Activates more parts of our brain
Writing is grounding!
Writing is manifesting
That same Harvard study found that those who wrote their goals down out earned their peers by 84%. This is obviously correlation, not causation, but shiiiiiit! I believe in the power of manifesting!
Its on sight for Butigege! Nikketa breaks down important differences between the Bernie and Warren campaigns. She highlights 3 tensions between the two candidates. Bernie needs Nikeeta!
