A Little Wiser: Will achieving your goals make you happy?

Christy and Kimi discuss mountain climber Aaron Rolston's realization that achieving the next "big thing" wasn't enough to make him happy. They discuss their own empty pursuits and the failed expectation that the next promotion or accomplishment would bring fulfillment. They also discuss the healthy side of achievement.  According to Christy, achieving is NOT a dirty wordStriving to achieve is healthy and fulfilling when our goals (and the process of attaining them) are aligned with our personal values. The friends share the goals they are currently hoping to achieve. Christy wants to find more joy and self-compassion in taking risks. Kimi's dream is to grow her podcast and her speaking career while nurturing a close family. What are you hoping to accomplish?
