312 | The One Missing Element to Goal Setting with Daymond John

In the podcast interview with Daymond John, we talked about leadership and growing fast companies. We dive deep into Daymond John goal setting strategies too. We got to a point in the interview when I asked him about productivity. The moment shifted as he got intense about success in today’s distracted world. John looked me in the eye and told me that he constantly makes a conscious effort to set goals, rather than letting other people set goals for him. “I think it’s the number-one reason for success or failure,” he added.

Daymond John Goal Setting: “I have ten goals that I read every single night before I go to bed and every single morning when I wake up” he said. “Six of them expire in six months, and the other four expire in three years, five years, 10 years and 20 years. I reset them every six months, and I never reach them. I only get 20 percent there, 30 percent there — but I get closer to there.”
