Today’s episode is about friendship goals. Why set them? What do they look like? So many people are taking one action after another when it comes to friendship without much thought as to why. They’re repeating old patterns and doing what they “think” they should do instead of focusing on their ideal vision of social wellness. I say “ideal vision” with a grain of salt. Likely, this vision is a moving target, changing as you change. Here, we talk about the steps to take and offer tips and examples that might help you make these goals for 2024. Like with anything, making and executing friendship goals will take a LOT of brain power in the beginning, but I hope you push through that uncomfortable phase and get to the place where you’re just fine tuning. In this episode you’ll hear about: The steps to making friendship goals, from setting aside time to reflect to stepping back and looking at the big pictureCategories to think about when making the goals, like: How much time do you have?
