Personal Goal Setting

Practice Overview

Ever wonder why people contribute to Wikipedia? What would make someone spend hours updating a site that doesn’t pay her or even help her build her resume?

Here lies the power of Epic Meaning and Calling one of the most powerful motivators for humans behaviour. Humans have an incredible drive to be part of something bigger than themselves. When we embrace this call to adventure, we stop being mere employees/workers/partners/parents/etc. and become the hero of our own story.

Creating a vision of the future, where you see yourself as the hero of your own story, can power you towards to a goal greater than yourself.

In this practice you will find actionable ideas on how to write your own epic personal visions.

This practice combines the work of Yu Kai Chou and his Octalysis gamification framework and the work of J.D.Meier in Getting Agile Results.
