I’ve counted them – in the past year I produced over thirty training videos for YogaWorks. I’m so proud! Now I’m ready to take these services on the road. Introducing a new incarnation of Jean – Training Video Producer. Ahhh, I like the ring of that.
Enjoy this video which introduces a coaching activity called SMART Meetings. It features two fabulous YogaWorks employees – Amber Hazor and Jacqui Leake. Go Amber and Jacqui!
The BEST format helps you think through and phrase your goals in the most empowering way possible. BEST stands for:
In today’s blog, we’ll focus on the S. Specific. Let’s say this is your goal: I don’t want to get stressed out at work anymore. That goal is a good start. It states clearly what isn’t wanted. The first step in making your goal specific is to phrase it so that it focuses on what you do want.
“I want to be more relaxed at work.”
Better! Now, what actions will help you be more relaxed? Deep breathing? Taking a few more breaks? Remembering to eat lunch? Revise your goal around a clear action:
“I will take five deep breaths before I eat my lunch each day.”
Wallah! This goal is really specific.
Did you know that according to one study, if you write a goal down, you’re 60% more apt to achieve it? You did if you read last week’s blog. Here’s the recap:

In today’s blog, we’ll focus on the E. Energizing.
When you think about achieving your stated goal, are you excited? Do you feel energized by it? If so, your goal has passed the Energizing Test.
Some people write goals for themselves that they don’t really want to achieve. Writing a goal and not being excited about it is usually the result of trying to want something that someone else wants you to want. It’s trying to be someone your not. Or in the simplest terms: people pleasing.
Let’s face it, goal setting usually means changing habits and trying new behaviors. It can be challenging so it better be worth it to you. That’s why it’s key to make sure your goals are energizing.
Next week, we’ll discuss the “S” in BEST. Are you psyched?

In today’s blog, we’ll focus on the B. Believable.
There’s only one person who gets to decide if your goal is believable: you. We all have greatness within us, and sometimes that greatness hasn’t yet had a chance to blossom.
Does your goal come from a quiet inner place inside that Knows (with a capital “K”) what you’re truly capable of? If so, then you go ahead and write that goal down. Though it might seem silly or “out there” or impossible to others, it’s yours to claim.
I remember it well. I was driving with a successful friend at a time in my life when I felt very UN-successful. I wasn’t earning a lot and was doing very unglamorous work. Even so, I knew that I was an inspirational keynote speaker. “I’m a keynote speaker,” I said to her in a small voice. It sounded ridiculous coming out of my mouth given my life circumstances.
Let’s fast forward to the life I’m living today where keynote speaking seems obvious. I’m sitting in a lovely hotel tapping away on my laptop waiting to meet with a colleague to discuss our keynote marketing materials. It’s happening!
What do you know that no one’s judgment or criticism can shake? Write that goal down and if you would indulge me – tell me what it is!
