Belief Beyond Boundaries
I would like to quickly talk about a method I use to help form easy and measurable goals out of ambiguous emotions or situations that I would like to change. I use the "WHY" method. First I state the problem and then keep asking "why" until I can go no further, uncovering the ROOT of the issue in order to form the goal. Let's dive in with one example:

For the goal of needing more support at work, you pick this goal out of the list of 5 things your manager could do to help you feel supported:
As you can see, asking "why" makes it much easier to formulate goals by peeling back the layers of your motivation. If you have any questions about this, feel free to message me in the comments.
