The Science Behind Goal Setting
Every successful and ambitious person I’ve met set goals.
But I wonder if goals are just a “feel good” thing or if there’s scientifically proven benefit.
So I did a bit of reading.
Unsurprisingly, there’s a tonne of research showing how goal-setting changes the way our own brain functions.
Here’s exactly what goal setting does:
- Goal setting alters the structure of your brain
- The emotional brain (amygdala) evaluates the importance of the goal
- The rational brain (frontal lobe) tracks the specifics of the goal
- The emotional and rational brain work together to keep you focused and motivated
- All of this alters how you behave that causes you to achieve your goals
- Challenging goals alter your brain structure faster than easy/loose goals.
So, goal setting is literally brain-changing (and life-changing).
If you haven’t already, I urge you to take some time to set out your ambitious goals for this year.
And while you do that, I’ll leave you with a relevant motivational quote by Bernard Cline
