#024 - PERMA-V: Achievement in 2021 and Beyond

In today's episode we cover Achievement.

When most people think achievement, they immediately get into goal setting with SMART goals. At Wanna Grab Coffee? we really hate the idea of SMART goals and think there is a better way.

We talk about how the very act of setting goals is rooted in optimism - believing the future will be better than today, which can provide hope and motivation when we reach obstacles.

Effective goals require three things which we will provide a framework for more consistently defining and planning around:

  • The "Wish" - what is it you hope to achieve
  • The "Waypower" - have you defined a realistic way/path/plan
  • The "Willpower" - Energy and effort required to finish

Finally, we talk about the WOOP framework as a scientifically backed method of setting and achieving effective goals:

  • Wish - Define what you want
  • Outcome - Visualize and articulate the benefits of getting it
  • Obstacle - Think through obstacles and roadblocks that could stand in your way
  • Plan - Create a plan up-front to handle obstacles and overcome them

We hope you are getting value out of our series around flourishing in work and life, wellbeing, and productivity after a difficult 2020. If there is anything we can do to help you, feel free to reach out.
