Goals vs Processes: Why Your Goals Are Actually Wishes

Swyx and Randall talk about how you're setting wishes and not goals. Join us for our New Year focused episode!

We believe in systems over goals. Swyx and Randall love goals and we talk about how you can actually achieve your goals and how you can create a process to follow through.

So many people set 'wishes' and they don't actually set goals because you're not creating a process to follow through. If you don't create the process, the goal won't happen.

People overestimate how much they can get done in one year and they underestimate how much they can get done in 12 weeks.

When you're looking for a job, the goal is to get the job. But just setting the goal isn't enough. You need to have a system in place to get the job.
