Goal setting happens best in a liminal mindset.

In order to choose the most engaging goals, limiting beliefs and other baggage need some reduction. Some steps to take include:

  1. Identify and write out any limiting beliefs preventing siezing full potential.
  2. Reframe limiting beliefs into liberating truths.
  3. Perform an after-action review to learn from the past.
