WANTcast 061: Reflections + Projections: How To (Actually) Have Your Best Year Yet

Making mindful goals and setting realistic resolutions isn’t as easy as it seems like it would be…mainly because, much like our self-talk, we’re so used to jumping to the WHATs before exploring the WHYs.

Now, if that sentence sounded a little TOO hippie-dippie woo woo for you, don’t worry: this episode is actually super pragmatic. In our SEASON FOUR premiere, we’ll be breaking down some of my most useful exercises and thought-starters to help you design the kind of year you actually WANT to have (instead of relying on a to-do list of goals to throw you around).

No BS here: this is an episode to come back to whenever you feel like you need direction or a goals “refresh.” No resolutions involved.

Happy New Year, WANT fam!

    Katie! I absolutely loved this episode! I so resonate with the whole conversation about giving compliments! That was so powerful. Also so loved it when you talked about self-talk and having to “learn a new language” in a sense. So much wisdom and look forward to more WANTcasts this year! Thank you!
