Ep.17 – Reviewing your year and setting goals for the future

Ep.17 – Reviewing your year and setting goals for the future

Greg & Gene discuss tools and tactics for looking back at your year and setting goals for the next one. How it can be a helpful and rewarding process.

Here are some steps you can follow to make the most of this exercise:

  1. Reflect on your year: Take some time to think about the events, experiences, and accomplishments of the past year. What went well? What didn’t go as planned? What did you learn from these experiences?
  2. Identify your values and priorities: Consider what is most important to you in life. This could be things like family, career, personal growth, or health. Understanding your values and priorities will help you set goals that align with what matters most to you.
  3. Set specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) goals: To make your goals as effective as possible, try to make them specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. For example, instead of setting a goal to “exercise more,” you could set a goal to “exercise for 30 minutes, three times per week.”
  4. Make a plan: Once you have identified your goals, think about what steps you need to take to achieve them. Break your goals down into smaller, more manageable tasks and create a plan of action.
  5. Track your progress: As you work towards your goals, make sure to track your progress. This can help you stay motivated and see how far you’ve come.
  6. Be flexible: While it’s important to have a plan, it’s also important to be flexible and adapt to changes that may come up. If you encounter challenges or setbacks, don’t be afraid to adjust your goals or your plan as needed.

Overall, the process of looking back at your year and setting goals for the next one can be a valuable opportunity to reflect on your past experiences and chart a path forward. By setting SMART goals and making a plan to achieve them, you can work towards a future that aligns with your values and priorities.

Ep.16 Communal – Erinn Rowe

Great conversation with someone who is passionate about helping others in a way that both addresses real world needs and feeds their soul. You can really do both and strive to be the very best you can be both operationally and personally. Erinn is an inspiration to me after our conversation and I think you’ll be inspired as well after this episode.

Erinn Rowe serves as CEO of Harvest Hope Food Bank, managing the organization’s operations through its three locations in the Midlands, Pee Dee and Upstate of South Carolina. Prior to joining Harvest Hope, Erinn worked with Bank of America for 10 years as the Senior Treasury Sales Analyst for Commercial Banking at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. In this role, Erinn and her team worked with companies that had revenue ranging from $5 million to $2 billion annually, proactively providing relevant insights and integrated financial solutions to help those companies succeed. Before banking, Erinn owned and operated a franchise of Young Chef’s Academy, a children’s cooking school which promoted healthy eating and skill-based learning for kids and adults of all ages.

“I believe when you teach one person, they share it with their whole village. The ripple effect of ‘I got this’ happens every time I work with a client, teach a workshop, or lead a retreat.”

I am a motivational speaker, fitness trainer, master yogi, and entrepreneur who teaches self-care and encourage badass-ery.  I was a sixteen year strength and conditioning coach turned yogi. Hyper competitive to thriving on an unhurried life. I am a certified Thai yoga bodyworker with over 500 hours of formal yoga training. I have traveled the world studying physical therapy modalities and healing methods to expand my ability to help people increase mobility, recover from injuries and prevent them. I am a former athlete and coach, I work with Olympians, Grammy winning musicians, ultra runners and professional athletes as well as with people of every age and fitness level who want to be more active and enjoy life.

My most cherished belief is in holding space. Each session is unique, clients come in with different needs and they each need to be accommodated. I offer private sessions for individuals, couples and small groups.  Private sessions range from personal training, yoga, stretching.
