Goal Setting

Goal Setting

Smart Goals are to goal setting what dieting is to Diet Culture.

For years, I set goals the diet Culture way… you know, the SMART GOALS. Every year the pattern repeated itself. Give up by the 5th week.

Just like diet culture, SMART goals are anchored on external results, accomplishment of actions, grounded into avoidance of failure and perfectionism. It’s archaic, sexist and builds on elitist principles.

Just like dieting doesn’t work, SMART goals do not work because it disregards how humans function. It requires constant willpower, which we know to be a limited resource, so when willpower runs out, action-driven goal setting techniques stop working.

In today’s episode, we are going to discover the right way of setting goals for women: the diet-culture-free way to set goals.

What you’ll learn listening to this episode:

  • Why SMART goals don’t work
  • How I created my life against all odds 
  • My business success in 2020 in the middle of a pandemic
  • What is the diet-culture-free goal-setting process
