The Science and Soul of Living Well

The synergy of values, intentions & goals in creating meaningful change

December 23, 2020

In today’s episode, we focus on the importance of values, intentions, and goals in creating meaningful changes in our lives. We begin by clarifying the differences between values, intentions, and goals and highlighting how all three are important and interrelated agents of change. Together, they have a synergistic effect and are more powerful than any one element on its own. We’ll also hone in on 7 key strategies for approaching a change-oriented process and effectively achieving the changes we desire in a way that is purpose-driven, sustainable, and grounded in the real practicalities of our lives.
