A High Performance Guide to Goal Setting: Short-Term vs. Long-Term Goals

Season #8

In this episode, we discuss the importance of goal setting and how to set impactful goals for the year. Goal setting is important to give us a sense of purpose and for our mental health. We'll also talk about the difference between short-term and long-term goals and the role they play in personal and professional development. And I'll share my insights into vision boards and words for the year. 


  • Setting goals at the beginning of the year is a natural time to reflect and think about what you want to achieve.
  • Having a goal gives you direction and purpose in life.
  • Short-term goals help maintain momentum towards long-term goals.
  • Write down your goals and make them specific and clear.
