121: Clean Slate featuring Lisa Jacobs

Feb 20, 2024

In this episode of The Professional Creative Podcast, we're visiting the phenomenon of New Year's goals and the energy that comes with them. Lisa Jacobs is a New Year fanatic and she leads the charge as we check in on our 2024 goals. It's only a few weeks into January, but now is the perfect time to reflect on our behavior and assess if we're on track to achieve what we set out to do this year.

The new year brings with it a sense of clean slate energy—a chance to start over and embrace the endless possibilities ahead. However, as the weeks progress, this energy can feel fleeting, leaving many feeling burdened and overwhelmed. We explore the reasons behind the short lifespan of new year's resolutions and the importance of vigilance and consistency in achieving our goals.

But here's the thing: setting goals and making positive changes doesn't have to be confined to January 1st. We discuss how we can reset the pace at any time of the year and give ourselves permission to move temporal landmarks if needed. After all, the journey is just as important as the destination. So, whether you're starting fresh on January 1st or later in the year, remember to set yourself up for a marathon, not a sprint.

It’s a great time to check in with yourself. Are you on track to do what you’ve set out to do this year?

In this episode, you will learn:

  • The science behind the phenomenon of New Year’s
  • How to embrace this frenetic energy and reset if you need to
  • How to set yourself up for a marathon
