Setting the Right Goals and the Power of Thinking with John Acuff



No Description

39. In this episode of the 5 Core Life, host Will Moore sits down with Jon Acuff. Together, they discuss how to build habits and discipline in order to finish what you start. In addition, they explore the myth of overthinking as being a bad thing. Instead, they explain that overthinking is a superpower that can allow you to take ownership over your own thoughts. It's important not to just turn off your thoughts, but to instead replace them with the ones that are conducive to your life and goals. They discuss how important it is to break down your bigger goals into manageable, mini-goals. Jon shares an example of how he writes a book by writing one chapter at a time because a whole book feels like such a daunting task. Ultimately, you'll walk away knowing how to set the right goals that you will actually accomplish.

Are you ready to fire on all cylinders? If so, let's go!
