Setting SMART Goals

2020-12-21T16:32:50-06:00

There is a French saying, “c’est en forgeant qu’on devient forgeron,” which translates to “it is smithing that makes the smith,” or “it is in doing that we become.” Working towards meaningful goals is inherently transformative. Accomplishing personal goals improves our sense of purpose, self-efficacy, and satisfaction with life. In this webinar, well-being coach Sarah Lewis will teach you to formulate, set, and take action on your goals using the SMART method and concepts from Anthropedia’s Know Yourself workshops. This will be an interactive webinar: please have a notebook and writing utensil on hand.
