Why the End Goal isn't Actually the Finish Line

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 353

Are you focused on the end result of your goal and because of that — are you frustrated with your goal?

In this episode, Cara talks about the importance of appreciating the journey and progress made towards goals, rather than solely focusing on the end result.

Are you measuring your progress?! Because those are the numbers that are the most important.

Here are our key takeaways from this episode:

1️⃣ The Journey Matters: Success isn’t just about ticking off a to-do list. It’s about the mindset changes and progress we make along the way.

2️⃣ Celebrate Your Progress: It’s time to stop viewing ourselves as failures if we don’t achieve every item on our to-do list. Instead, let’s track our progress and celebrate our efforts.

3️⃣ Set Tier One Goals: These are new and important goals. Acknowledge your progress along the way and reframe your mindset from solely focusing on outcomes to recognizing the effort and growth made.

4️⃣ Future Morgue: This is a tool Cara uses in her planning challenges. Write a letter to your future self, envisioning how you want to feel when you achieve your goals.

Remember, progress matters more than checking off every item on your to-do list. Listen in and be encouraged!
