WHAT ARE YOU GRAPPLING WITH? (Asks Joyce Fegan of Grapple Podcast)
GOAL SETTING TIPS – where to start
I recently recorded a podcast with Joyce Fegan of Grapple. Joyce is a writer, journalist with The Guardian, PR specialist and podcaster. Grapple, the podcast is focused on dealing with hard issues we may all be grappling with but yet not talking about comfortably or openly.
During January Joyce asked listeners what they were grappling with and what they’d like covered this month. Many requested information on goal setting and looking after their finances. That’s where I came in. We discussed the 7 steps in setting and achieving goals. We also talked about productivity hacks and why our ‘why’ is so important. If you are thinking about setting goals and want to know where to start, take just over 30 minutes out of your day and have a listen. See here for the link
Personally, even if I haven’t struggled with some issues mentioned below, this podcast has given me great insight into what other people have gone through, are going through and how they have overcome. This can only be positive for my empathy levels, understanding and when connecting with others.
