198 - Good, Better, Best Goals

Good, Better, Best Goals On the podcast this week, I talk about goal setting. Goal setting is one of my favorite things. I may even like it more than organizing! The kind of goals that I love to set are BHAG – which stands for big, hairy, audacious goals. To put this into context, when I was 16 my goals were: to be a stay-at-home mom, home-school my kids, and grow all my own food, own a business AND be the President of the United States! I have always had really high expectations for myself and others around me. When I was graduating from college, I was told I had "unrealistic expectations." I think it’s fair to say that I do often have unrealistic expectations. I usually don’t achieve my goals in the time frame that I originally set. But that is because they are so big that they require extra time, resources, and personal development in order to achieve them. But I DO achieve them! Examples Of Big Goals That I Have Achieved In summer 2016, one of my big goals was to create an Amazon number 1 bestseller by the fall… and I did! (

Too much personal promotion
I really get a lot of helpful tips on organizing and even subscribe to the mailing list, but am often annoyed by the amount of promotion Lisa does about her books. I would be comfortable betting that 1/3 of her podcasts are promotions for her books. I literally don't listen to the last 1/4 of the show because of the self-promotion. I want to give this podcast 5 stars but the promotion just kills it for me.

One of my favourite, all-time podcasts!
Lisa is fantastic! I have listened to a bunch of "organization"-themed podcasts, and they can either be really slow-moving, obvious, or even sanctimonious, where the hosts can be really dry, boring or almost boastful about their perfect lives. Lisa, on the other hand, has a TON of great tips and systems, but more than that, she is really energetic, engaging, and talks freely about how she has tried things that haven't worked, and that organization is a process that needs to be revamped and updated as need be. I love listening to her podcasts, and I have found them to be really helpful. Her energy is contagious! Even in the rare case when I'm not really hankering to know about a certain topic, like car organization, I will generally listen to that podcast, and I will thoroughly enjoy listening to Lisa's voice, and hearing about her ideas, and without fail, I'll pick up some helpful tips, or new ways of doing things. I can't recommend her highly enough!
