During our conversation, we learned: 

  • What popular culture misunderstands about motivation (hint: we tend to think we need to change something about ourselves, but we actually need to change our circumstances!) 
  • How to set better goals for yourself and your team 
  • Why self-control isn’t enough for achieving your goals – and what you need to rely on instead 
  • The best way to juggle multiple goals  
  • The importance of intrinsic vs extrinsic motivation in achieving your goals, big and small
