Stretch Goals

Watch Video

Are you creating goals that take you outside of your comfort zone?

In today’s Monday Morning Jumpstart, AWAI Chief Success Officer, Ted Capshaw, and Director of Training, Jade Trueblood, talk about stretch goals. They discuss when it is the optimal time to have goals that take you outside of your comfort zone to level up your writing business, and when you should use goals within your comfort zone to feel powerful.

They also talk about the process for setting stretch goals, because pursuing them can lead to maximum earning potential, growth for your business, and a higher level of achievement. They challenge you to think about where you are today and where you want to be in the future.

Join us every Monday morning for a boost of writing motivation, plus tips and strategies to make sure you're staying on track and moving towards your goals all year.

  1. Please adjust my rating to 5 stars … just what I needed to hear today. Ted always shares such powerful, well grounded, insightful and honest guidance … he is an amazing mentor.


  2. I always enjoy your MMJs, but this morning's was probably the most realistic goal setting how-to I've ever seen, and I've logged years in sales where goal setting is part and parcel of one's professional experience. Well done.

  3. I thought I would learn to swim by taking a high dive out of a helicopter into the ocean. Then I realized I should tone it down to diving off a diving board into the deep end. Then I came to my senses and realized I am most comfortable in a smaller pool where I can touch the bottom on my tippy toes and it's just over my nose. That's where I will be swimming in circles until I hit the Olympic pool and so forth...

    Start with where you are confident and work up to surfing the waves in the ocean!
