This episode of our Gregory Offner interview series looks at root goal analysis. He shares his story and how it can be used to create a pattern interrupt that helps others. We can all find ourselves in a rut and with an improper focus. The discussion here goes into how we should review our goals and set them to truly achieve our wants and desires.

Root Goal Analysis – A Proper Focus

Life is full of distractions. That includes things that can make us think we are progressing towards our objectives but are leading us away. For example, a job that supports a hobby instead of turning that hobby into our job. While there are many things we have to do, there are also those we think we must do. The core of root goal analysis is a proper focus on what we need to do to progress towards our goals. Thus, we craft a direct route to our objectives instead of taking several detours along the way.
