It's a cliché that success is synonymous with burnout. But your ambition isn't to blame for burnout— poor planning is. You might just need a fresh approach to wellness, and the systems of support in your life.

In this episode, Jacob Moore explains how our personal 5 Bridges of Wellness are a vital pillar in the effort to avoid burnout, while still achieving formidable goals.

Here's what you'll learn on this episode:

  1. Determine the optimal route to your goal(s)

  2. Understand if your goals are aligned with your wellness needs

  3. Identify your “Defender” that will stop you from reaching them

Major goal setting without considering your wellness needs is unsustainable. You must know your abilities and limitations + consider the x-factor for life in order to truly reach your goals. Learn how in this episode.

“Randomly trying to hit a moving target of wellness is not really going to get you there. You might get it right some of the time, but having a clear goal of wellness, and understanding how that's aligned with your personal values in life is how you're going to find sustainability." — Jacob Moore
