247: How a 10-Year Goal Can Help You Do What Matters NOW, with Kathy Brown


How can having a 10-year, long-term goal help you make progress on what matters to you? In this episode, I’m joined by Certified Coach Kathy Brown as she shares how she helps clients develop long-term goals.


We talk about:

  • How long-term goals help us see beyond the day-to-day busyness of life
  • The difference between being complacent vs. content
  • How questions can prompt your thinking as you plan for the future
  • The role of curiosity in not getting stuck or stagnant in life


We also talk about specific questions Kathy uses with her clients to help them imagine the life they want to live in ten years, plus how this turns into action NOW. I loved hearing Kathy’s framework for doing what matters, and I know it will help you as well!
