Summary of the Spiritual Goals Episode
There are eight facets of life for which we might set goals. One of them — the spiritual facet — often gets left out of the goal-setting process. In this episode, Donald and I talk about spiritual goals. During the conversation, we get clear on what a spiritual goal is and the various ways that you can use to achieve them. Unlike other types of goals, spiritual goals are a lot less concrete and a bit more challenging to make S.M.A.R.T. But that doesn’t mean that they aren’t worthy of pursuing.
