Hope Mindful Compassion Show – Episode 21 – Setting Goals with Henk
This is our first podcast of the New Year (2017), and it seems like the perfect time to discuss the benefits and practicalities of setting goals. Having something to work towards can be highly beneficial for people in recovery, so long as we remember to enjoy the process of reaching them and don’t become too obsessed with achieving them.
Some of the topics covered in this show are:
What are the benefits of setting goals?
Does setting goals tend to be a problem for people who come to rehab?
What is the difference between ‘instant gratification’ and ‘delayed gratification’?
What is the process of setting a goal?
How do we set realistic goals?
How do we tell if we are putting sufficient effort into achieving a goal?
Are there any resources (e.g. apps) that can help people achieve their goals?
Is there a ‘dark-side’ to setting goals?
Can we become too obsessed with setting goals?
