In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by Andy Traub.

On today’s podcast, Andy and A.T. discuss the techniques that are necessary to mastering goal setting.


Andy’s tip for goal-setting is to be honest with yourself

  • If Moses had spent a little more time up on the mountain, he would have come down with an 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not kid thyself.
  • Don’t set yourself up for defeat by trying to do something crazy.
  • As opposed to saying, “I’m never eating brownies for the rest of my life,” try to not eat brownies for a week.
  • Accomplish your goals in small chunks and you will eventually accomplish something major.


Reward yourself when you accomplish small milestones

  • Don’t overdo it, but give yourself a small reward.
  • It’s important to keep your morale up.


Be able to measure your goal

  • The bathroom scale is a great tool.
  • Find a “bathroom scale” to measure any goal you set.


Instead of always focusing on the ultimate goal, focus on the process

  • Become a master of the little things you have to accomplish along the way to the ultimate goal.
  • Never lose sight of what you must be doing right now.
