In this week’s episode we talk all about setbacks, first, because learning to overcome setbacks is often what separates amateurs and professionals, but, second, because I’m in the middle of a setback myself.
So I introduce this topic by telling the listeners all about my marathon plan, which recently came unraveled due to some severe tendonitis. So since I’m knee deep in addressing this setback I figured it was the perfect time to do this episode.
After the introduction we define what a setback is and why they usually spell failure for most people. Quite simply, a setback tests you and your commitment to the goal.
So we need to know how to deal with a setback when one inevitably shows up and we do this with a 3 step process, which is regroup, recalibrate, and re-engage.
After I go into depth about how this process works I add some tips for dealing with setbacks. These tips address a few of the more common areas that tend to get people hung up.
And then we get into this week’s CTA. This week we do a post mortem on a goal that we failed to achieve. We look at errors in planning, errors in execution, and failure to overcome setbacks.
We apply what we learned today and ask ourselves if we still would’ve failed had we known what we know now.
