Hi there folks!

Creatives Meet Business is an event and podcast series based out of Austin, Texas for artists and creatives to learn the ropes of entrepreneurship.

This episode features Maggie Gentry Miller, Founder of MaggieGentry.com, who joined us in February during our roundtable event on Goal Planning. This episode uncovers the values behind goal planning and how you can create more meaningful goals for yourself. Without further ado, let's hop in and hear what she has to say!

Notes:

  • 0:00 to 1:06 - Ashland Opening Remarks and Intro of Maggie Miller
  • 1:11 to 2:42 - Introduction of Self and Topic
  • 2:43 to 9:12 - David DeSteno Research - Power of Gratitude
    • Delaying gratification study in the 1970s with a marshmallow and children
    • Kids who could wait for second marshmallow had "grit" 
    • Further studies of those same children who waited for a second marshmallow hit every success marker (good grades, good colleges, good work), but they weren't living as long.
    • Deprivation of what we want now and the pleasure of the present moment increases our stress hormones. A prolonged period of that shaves off years of life.
    • David DeSteno says the problem is that our goals are self-serving, it doesn't rely on strengthening social bonds and community (historically what we've done) 
    • Three values that allows us to work as a collective to achieve goals:
      1. Gratitude - Look at what you're grateful for on a daily basis. 
        1. Gratitude increases our threshold for patience which then increases our self control
      2. Compassion - Giving ourselves a healthy perspective of what the overall environment is
      3. Pride - Take an honest pride in your work, in your strengths, and in what you do really well
        1. Enjoy the process
  • 9:13 to 10:30 - Danielle LaPorte - Desire Map - Create goals with soul
    • Creating goals that make you feel the way you want to feel
    • Looking at values (gratitude, compassion, pride) and understanding how you want to feel in pursuit of that goal, then you're finally ready to create a vision board
  • 10:31 to 14:11 - Vision boarding
    • Maggie does her board once a year
    • How do I want to feel? - that's the question she uses when creating a board.
    • Start with a central image (start in the very middle) - that's the focal point and everything builds around it
    • After creation, post it in a place that's visible every day 
    • Gratitude journal / journaling - create a gratitude practice
    • To accommodate pride and the process in pursuit of the goal, Maggie has a piece of paper on the wall with blank slots for the number of client spaces she has available. It's about physically creating space.
  • 14:12 to 15:48 - Visualization 
    • Two kinds of visualization - Guided Meditation and Visualization (Power of Habit / Michael Phelps example)
    • Michael Phelps strategy with visualization
  • 15:51 to 20:01 - Ashland Closing Remarks
    • Mindset by Carol Dweck // Carol Dweck TedTalk
