WANTcast 091: Now’s The Time For A Planned Freak-Out

the WANTcast

It’s the most-used WANT exercise for a reason: it’s unexpected but it WORKS. Going through a major life transition, had a stressful month, or just wanting to take preventative measures to ensure you don’t have a *complete* meltdown when it all eventually feels like too much? You might be in need of a Planned Freak-Out.

In this episode we’ll talk about the origin story of the PFO, why it’s so different than any other goal-setting or self-reflection exercise you’ve done, and we’ll break down how to set yourself up for success in your own structured breakdown.

WANTcast 090: Letting Go + Past-Self Pen Pals (2020 Kickoff Episode)

the WANTcast

Doesn’t it sound sexy to say what you’re “leaving behind” in the new year? To make a list of what you’re going to stop doing in 2020? But it’s not that simple. 80% of us fall short on our goals in just a few weeks and use that hiccup to completely lose momentum.

In this episode, we’ll dive into two simple but deceptively impactful exercises to do at the start of the new decade: one to help you reflect on how far you’ve come (and make peace with former aspects of yourself you might be ashamed of), and one to help usher you into a brand new year (or ten).

WANTcast 089: Is Consistency Actually Key?

the WANTcast

You’ve probably heard the phrase “consistency is key” – in business, in marketing, in fitness, in habit-forming. Consistency is basically the golden ticket to any and all kinds of success. Or is it?


This episode breaks down an alternate view on consistency, and is for those people who feel defeated when things aren’t going according to plan or they’re thrown off their game (we reference seasonality – but this is an episode to bookmark no matter what time of year).
