The Four Types Of Goals: Which One Are You Striving For?

Adopting the right strategy for achieving your goals is extremely important if you want to achieve them. There's another question that you might want to ask yourself which is - "have I set the right type of goal for what I actually want to achieve?"

All goals are not equal, both in terms of how likely we are to achieve them as well as the effect this goal would have on our mental health and life satisfaction.

If we want to maximize both, we need to examine what type of goals we're setting. The fact is, no matter how effective you are, if you're heading in the wrong direction, progress is the very last thing you need. 

In this episode of the ikario podcast, Shane and Ollie discuss the four different types of goals and which are better (and worse) to aim for.

In this episode...

Some of the points covered in today's conversation:

  • Why adopting having goals can cripple your progress and mental health - especially in the long term.
  • What does it mean to adopt being goals and why is this better than simply striving to attain something external to us?
  • The upper tier of goal setting. Moving from external to internal focus.
  • Why becoming goals are a step in a whole new and more rewarding direction when it comes to improving our lives.
  • The final and most powerful type of goal - both for chances of attainment and for our mental/physical well-being. Doing goals.
