Goals! How To Set Ones That Work For You

Goals! How To Set Ones That Work For You


Wednesday 28th February    
10:00am - 11:00am


Event Type

We’ve all heard of SMART goals and other traditional goal-setting frameworks. They’re meant to be efficient ways to set and track your goals leading to success.

These frameworks, however, don’t work for people with ADHD.

In this session, we’re joined by Rachel and Theo, founder of the neuroinclusive app Cammi, to explore some of the reasons these goal-setting frameworks don’t work, and what we might be able to do instead.

We’ll talk about cycles of negative appraisal that can squander our ambitions as neurodivergent folks, and what we can do to break free of them using elements of two theories: self-determination and self-continuity.

Finally, we’ll talk about dreams! Big, ambitious dreams that seem completely unreachable, and the strategies we can use to start working towards them.

You’ll take away:

  • Ways to set motivating dreams, not goals
  • Ways to work towards your dreams in small achievable steps

Rachel is a queer and neurodivergent person with a hidden disability. She founded Cammi to help people with ADHD who might not have access to coaching.
