What we covered

Dear October community,

At some point in our lives, we have all experienced the sting of disappointment when a goal we set for ourselves was not achieved. Whether it's a professional aspiration, a personal milestone, or a team objective at work, disappointment can be a challenging emotion to navigate. However, it's important to recognize that experiencing disappointment is a normal part of the goal-setting process. The Forest session titled "Coping with Disappointment in Goal Setting" is designed to help you explore strategies to manage these feelings effectively.

Understanding Disappointment

Disappointment arises when reality doesn't align with our expectations. It can lead to feelings of frustration, sadness, or even self-doubt. When we invest time, effort, and emotion into pursuing a goal, falling short can be disheartening. It's crucial to acknowledge and validate these emotions while also understanding that setbacks are a natural part of any journey towards achievement.
