The simple act of setting a big goal can change your outcomes because it defines the tasks that you prioritize in the immediate future. This week we talk about how we experienced this phenomenon first hand when we decided to launch our new education program School16. We discuss what motivated us to set a highly optimistic goal and how this led to getting over 600 signups in just a few short weeks.
A simple framework that can be used to replicate this process is called SMART goal setting. Goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound.
