Podcast Notes: Should We Be Setting Annual Goals? (The Art of Product #116)

I've been really enjoying The Art of Product podcast lately. In their latest episode of 2019 "Should We Be Setting Annual Goals?", Derrick Reimer and Ben Orenstein discuss annual goals.

What Derrick said about habits vs goals made me think about goal setting again:

I think it is helpful to at least name, if not goals, then what habits I want to form.That's kind of how I'm thinking about it. Habits over goals or specific milestones. And I think that may align better with the try-to-enjoy-the-journey part. What are the things on the day-to-day that I can cultivate as opposed to just striving towards some end-state.
