“Paint your worst nightmare. Understand what’s in your control. Have a plan of action to avert big disasters.”

Tim Ferris

You may have come across the concept of goal-setting, whether you’ve done it or you’re intuitively aware of your targets. This could be personal or work-related.

I encourage you to try the “Fear Setting” framework and understand what the real price is of your inactioned goals. Fear setting is the reverse of goal setting—it’s envisioning the consequences if you fail to take action.

The thought of maintaining the status quo can become daunting when subjected to this exercise; and can serve as a powerful catalyst towards action.

This framework will be helpful in the workplace for example giving feedback, negotiating a salary, understanding promotion pathways, or even deciding to leave a job.

Watch the 13-minute video below—I assure you, you won’t regret a second. Don’t forget to leave a comment sharing your experiences with this framework.

I’ll leave on the note of:
