A New Year is here and it is a time to make New Year's Resolutions and set some goals for yourself, or is it? Is this a truly effective way to get things done? Is it even necessary? In this episode, I discuss the pros and cons of setting goals. I discuss how goals can help motivate you to get a desired result and discuss Matt Stone's book "Goals Suck: Why the Obsessions with Goal-Setting is a Flawed Approach to Productivity and Life in General". Ultimately, you have to decide for yourself whether or not you will be setting goals for the new year. I hope you enjoy the podcast and find it useful.
