Episode 833 – Goals Gone Wild Part I: Episode 833

Hi Clean Nation! Welcome to the podcast. Today, we have part one of a two part episode with the wonderful Tracey Thompson. She is here to talk about redefining goals and how to use them to your advantage rather than something you use against yourself. Tracey dives into what a goal is, how to set it effectively and how to make them acheivable and atainable. If this stuff overwhelms you, this is the pocast for you!


In order to achieve a goal, the first thing you need to do is distinguish between a desire, and something you want to accomplish. And then you need to flesh out and give your goals details so that you know the steps necessary to accomplish them. Using the SMART method can help tremendously. S-specific, M-measurable, A-Aligned (with your bigger why) R-Reasonable (the goal is within your control), and T- timeline (have a date by which you should achieve your goal).

Make Your Goal Fit Within the Framework

When you are setting your goals, make sure that they fit into the framwork of SMART goals. For example, if you have a goal related to your marriage, you have to break it down to more than just “improve my relationship”. Instead, you could set a goal that is measurable so that you know when you have completed that goal. Also, make sure that your goal lines up with your overall why and your own core values so that you are emotionally connected to this goal. You can get clear on this by thinking about how accomplishing this goal will positively affect you and those around you.

Getting Clear on the Last Step

The final part of creating a goal is to understand clearly what the last step in the process will be. For example, if it’s a money goal, how do you know that the goal has been accomplished? In this case, it could be that you have x amount of dollars in your account that is liquid and accessible. It is a clear, obvious thing that you can equate to accomplishing that goal.   

Final Takeaway: When creating goals, make sure they are SMART- specific, measurable, attainable, reasonable, and have a timeline.
