Why Focusing on the Process is More Important Than Goals: Insights from Laura Lummer's Breast Cancer Recovery Coach Podcast

In order to improve for good, you need to solve problems at the systems level.
Laura Lummer, the Breast Cancer Recovery Coach, is a two-time breast cancer survivor who helps women create a life that's better than before breast cancer. In episode 69 of her podcast, Laura shares valuable insights on why focusing on the process is more important than the goal. She acknowledges that the first of the year is all about setting goals, but most goals are abandoned before Valentine's day. Instead, she emphasizes the importance of planning and infusing energy into the steps you're going to take to change your life. For lasting change, you need to solve problems at the systems level. Laura suggests setting up a process for yourself that includes the habits you want to change and the steps you will take to achieve your goals.
Laura also emphasizes the power of mindfulness and healthy thinking in creating lasting change. She shares a thought exercise where you come up with three words that describe how you want to show up in the world and set alarms on your phone to remind you to behave like that person. Laura also addresses the impact of breast cancer on mental health and wellbeing and offers tools for creating lasting change. She has created an action sheet to help her listeners start building their process toward the goals they want to achieve and the change they want to see in their lives.
Laura reminds us that when you set time limits on your personal development goals, you open yourself up to feeling like a failure. Instead, take your eye off the goal and focus on the path to the goal, the process to getting there, and the habits that have to change. By setting up a process for yourself, you can manifest the change you want to see in your life. Listen to the full episode now on alcoholfree.com and start creating lasting change in your life.
