Shownotes

Our society often places a heavy emphasis on achieving, setting targets, and constantly expanding. But is it possible to find fulfillment and contentment without chasing constantly after goals?

Today, we have the privilege of speaking with Derek Hagen, a financial therapist who specializes in helping individuals understand the role of money in their lives while guiding them towards a more meaningful existence.

In this discussion, we examine how our fixation on goals can distract us from being present in the moment; we explore the reasons humans set goals and how it may just be a desperate attempt to control the future.

Join me for this captivating conversation that challenges conventional notions of goal setting and explores the path to a more mindful and meaningful life.
