Wisegoals - Goal Setting, Coaching, and More

-   James Stevenson (MSc, IEA) - Coach and Psychologist

Welcome to WiseGoals!

I've spent close to 20 years researching the science of goal setting, motivation, psychology, and coaching psychology, and there are many surprising discoveries that are certain to increase your chances of accomplishment. 

Journey to Goal Success

What emerged was an improved way of setting goals...

  • that brings out your uniqueness
  • that stirs positive forces within
  • that can be learnt and used again and again 

At the heart of the WiseGoals approach is your relationship with yourself - As well as learning to set effective goals, you also learn to self-coach, self-motivate, and self-encourage!

You become your own executive and leadership coach - this is the art of self-leadership. 

What qualities do WiseGoals have?

  1. Goals that emerge from within. They feel amazing when you discover them. They arise as a consequence of your hope, creativity, and deeper self-awareness. They feel like something you’re sure you want, therefore doubts about your motives don’t restrict your efforts down the line. From the fertile ground of your life, wonderful goals sprout. Your heart, spirit, and mind are in. 
  2. Goals that focus on learning. At WiseGoals we’re more interested in what exciting and interesting experiments you can try and what you learn in the process. Inner development. Fresh Insights and New Realisations are the gifts that keep on giving. Dynamic process.
  3. Goals that facilitate living with freedom. You can live each day with a sense of wonder and anticipation when you set goals that don’t restrict you. Being open to anything, expecting something wonderful, can open your heart and life to possibilities. Think Imagination + visualisation + positive feelings.
  4. Goals grounded in an exploration of your inner and outer world. By exploring yourself, your depth and variety, your past and present, your contradictions and complexity, you create the causes and conditions for exciting and wonderful goals to emerge and re-emerge over and over. By exploring your outer world, how you are connected, how things are connected, where you stand in this wider reality, you open boundless opportunities and possibilities.
Emerson - to be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishmentquote

A Broader Approach to Goals

We all have things we want to accomplish, but achievement isn't everything. We also want, arguably even more so, to be happy, free, and energetic. That's why I integrated the science of happiness into the WiseGoals goal setting system. We focus on self-understanding, momentum and small enjoyable changes to make your goal journey positive and liberating.

Nothing in life stays the same even for a moment. Your reality in relation to what you want, is constantly changing, no two days are ever the same. With this ever-moving reality, which is true both within and without, the modern age calls for an approach that is fresh, dynamic, and inner-generated!

This is why we teach you not just to set goals once, but to lead yourself, motivate yourself, understand yourself, support yourself, and be your own best teacher and friend. 

Emerson - If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years, how men would marvel and stare quote

The Wisdom of Great Minds

At Wisegoals, I love broadening the area of goals to include leading thinkers.

Consider the thoughts of some these role models for example and how they relate to goals:

  1. No man ever steps in the same river twice. For it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man” – Heraclitus beautifully describes the WiseGoals approach - encouraging a fresh, dynamic and ever changing relationships with our goals.
  2. Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts” - Albert Einstein highlighting the value of your goals coming from your own feelings and desires, which we are experts in facilitating. 
  3. Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever” - Ghandi encourages us to live freely today and always be learning. 
  4. Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” Ralph Waldo Emerson is aligned with our goal setting system - creating your own unique path fosters motivation and determination unlike any other.
  5. Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one’s thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe highlights the magic of WiseGoals here. We make this most difficult thing, flow wonderfully and naturally. 

This site is full of the poetic and stirring insights of great mentors that bring much to the practice of intentions and goals. 

Emerson - The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall quote
