Ep. 172: Redefining Goal Setting: Why SMART Goals May Not Be So Smart With Cody Limbaugh

Interviews, strategy and advice for building your online business with your host Trudy Rankin. 

 

 

 Summary

Have you ever set goals for yourself or your business, only to fall far, far short and feel extremely disappointed with yourself?  I know I have.

 

In this insightful podcast episode with Cody Limbaugh, we delve into the world of goal setting and personal transformation.

 

Cody Limbaugh has been a Strength & Conditioning Coach for nearly 20 years. He's coached people from all walks of life, from youth teams to retirees, from Olympic athletes to elderly patients recovering from joint replacement surgeries. 

 

Cody is also the author of the counterintuitive book, “Stop Setting Goals!” 

 

Which grabbed my attention because we’re taught, especially as senior managers in the corporate world that goal setting is everything … even if we fail to achieve those goals.

 

Cody and his wife Tali co-host the Live All Your Life Podcast. Now they're using their 30+ years of combined coaching experience to help couples re-ignite their spark through fitness, nutrition, and intimacy practices through their FitTogether coaching program at howtofittogether.com.

 

We talk about:

 

  • Cody's personal journey, from transitioning from a mortgage banker to a personal trainer and coach
  • The difference between engineering goals and the traditional SMART goals paradigm, and why the latter may not always be the best fit for achieving your aspirations. 
  • The concept of radical honesty in relationships and how it helps individuals and the relationship evolve
  • The unique challenges and dynamics of working together as a couple in a business.
  • The E-Myth concept of structuring a business with defined roles and duties.
  • Cody’s unique perspective on focusing on the trajectory towards your vision, cultivating daily habits, and celebrating small victories along the way. 
  • Some of the valuable lessons he's learned about teaching and overcoming imposter syndrome. 

 

If you're looking to reframe your approach to goals and find inspiration in personal transformation, this episode is a must-listen.
