Setting Big Goals with Caroline Adams Miller, MAPP

Today in The Change Lab, I’m joined by my former coach and goal-setting expert, Caroline Adams Miller. Twenty-three years ago, Caroline helped me achieve an impossible goal that changed my life. 

In our conversation, Caroline breaks down the difference between learning goals and performance goals and why distinguishing one from the other matters; why women need less consolation from their friends and more encouragement to go after hard goals; and how she’s approaching her next big goal…writing her forthcoming book, Big Goals, which comes out in the Fall of 2024. 

As Caroline reminds us, “the happiest people wake up to hard goals.” This episode is a must listen if you have big dreams, but feel stuck without a clear idea of how to realize those goals.
