Making Shift Happen

58. Should You Aim for Better or Best?

Feb 21, 2022 | Podcast | 0 comments

As we’re in the midst of February, motivation can be low right now – so, considering the perspective of aiming for better or best is worth a look. In this episode, I discuss extrinsic versus intrinsic motivation, and how focusing on mastery instead of victory can make a difference.

So, ask yourself: will you strive to be better or the best?
