596: Do problems or goals motivate you?

We are discussing a very relevant paradigm shift on the topic of goals. Chances are you’ve had “goals” pounded into you for many years. And the term goals may or may not inspire you...and due to that, you may even feel guilty for not being motivated to have, set and focus on...goals. Sounds blasphemous coming from The Ziglar Show, the veritable kingdom of goals! Isn’t that a primary term Zig Ziglar is known for? Yes, it is. But what you’ll hear in this show is that the point of goals is getting to an end result. And the truth is, more people are motivated by...solving problems.  It’s not mere semantics or a play with words, it’s truly foundational regarding how you set your course and achieve...anything. We kick off with a four minute clip from...Tom Ziglar! This was derived from a discussion I had with him and he was talking about this aspect of “goal” driven or “problem” driven. I had never heard it this way and really resonated with the concept, and said we needed to do a show on it. So here it is. From Tom’s four minute message I posted this question on Facebook, “ “Are you more motivated by achieving goals, or solving problems?" We got a boat load of responses, and they lined up precisely to the percentage Tom shares in his message regarding how many of us are goal or problem driven, it was amazing. Tom and I talked through a number of them. You’ll want to join us in this show.
