We’re closing out 2018, so it’s a good time to figure out your goals for the coming year. Setting goals and making resolutions can be anxiety-inducing, especially when you need to figure out a plan and inevitably compare yourself to your friends and colleagues. But, as counterintuitive as it sounds, you might find that these stressful expectations decrease if you set your sights significantly higher.
In this minisode, Dorothy delves into why you shouldn’t try to compete with your peers but instead aspire to the standards of those who have found personal and professional success.
- How it is possible to feel lonely at the top—but not in the way you expect.
- Why massive goals are easier to achieve than average goals.
- Not falling into the trap of underestimating yourself and overestimating others.
