Are you overdosing on objectives?

Meeting new friends and having fun eating Mexican (in Spain!), exploring the city and taking in moments in nature…

Happy Friday!

I don’t know about you, but I like setting goals. I like having objectives. And I like feeling as though I am working towards something… checking items off the list and getting closer to completion.

However, I’ve noticed recently it’s not only in my professional life that I like to be working towards goals… it’s leaked into my personal life, too.

While on a trail run this past weekend, I had a bit of an epiphany.

Watch this week’s video to find out how I got called out – and my ensuing aha moment – and answer 3 important questions to see whether you’re on your way to a goal-setting overdose!

Again, ask yourself these 3 questions:

  1. Where in your life do you set goals, have objectives on, or are you measuring?
  2. When was the last time you did something just because, or
  3. How would it feel to eliminate any objective or measurement-driven activity just for one day?


It may be time for a goal-setting, objective hunting, to-do list checking detox!


I encourage you to take this on this week… and I want to hear how it goes.

Let’s keep the conversation going by answering these 3 questions in the comments below.


Have a FAB week!
