I have deeply rooted feelings of unworthiness. Even though I’ve had success in life, these feelings never totally go away. I have to fight them each day.  Many of my clients have a similar struggle with insecurity. They believe their value comes from their performance, just like I do.

Here’s a goal setting activity I’ve used with dozens of clients. It takes no more than 15 minutes to complete. You can do it personally or with your team. Works great as a team building activity where everyone shares their results. With this task, I’ve found that most set the same goals in 15 minutes that they would if given 15 days.
