Steps to Infuse Your Goals
By Athena Staik, Ph.D.
One of the keys to success in any area of your life is staying focused on what’s important in a given situation or period of time. What you most desire – your goals – are inseparably connected to your highest values, certain core emotional yearnings you are hardwired, as a human being, to aspire to realize.
The key to realizing what you want therefore lies not only in your ability to stay focused on your goals, but also the skill of cultivating and holding fast to an impassioned understanding of the connection between your goals and your deepest values. It’s about getting your brain to work for you, optimally, with you.
