Many of us have goals we want to achieve, sometimes BIG ambitious goals, but how do you chase them? How do you prioritise? AND importantly, what happens when it leads to negative outcomes, like becoming obsessive, or burnt out, or you lose sight of your work/life/study balance?

In this podcast we discuss a question from a listener who developed an eating disorder by chasing the goal of becoming a professional sports person, all after being bullied at school which made her want to "prove she could do it". Proving you can do it is great, until you get admitted to hospital because of it.

Tom and I explore external vs internal goals, the debate of balance, how to achieve big things in life without the downsides, and much more. This podcast is a true deep dive, and I share some personal stories of my journey to add to the exploration of life, body and career success.
