179: Create Your Year With Intention & Goals


“New Year’s resolutions are just trash.”

It’s a new year! And, for many of us, with each new year comes the desire to turn over a new leaf and start fresh. To create yourself in the best way possible, you have to do the deep work and really investigate your life — and a new year is the perfect excuse to do just that! There’s a delicate balance between keeping your feet on the ground and your head in the clouds. And it’s important for both the creative side of your life and for the business side, but you also have to set your intentions without getting too attached to the results.

Today I really want to talk about goal setting and intention setting for the year. I will share my method for doing so as well as the personal goals that I am setting for myself.

On today’s show, we’re going over the ways to set and prioritize your goals for the new year, how to balance work with pleasure, and how to balance those goals with reality.
