We all have goals we wish to achieve in life, and more often than not, we relinquish them due to a lack of planning or failure to take meaningful action. Where so many people go wrong is that in order to get what we want out of life, we need to have a clear picture of where we want to be and a well-defined road map for how to get there.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Hal Hershfield to discuss how to move closer to your goals and dreams using the power of visualization. Dhru and Hal talk about the roadblocks that get in the way and why setting a clear, distinct, and manageable timeline is essential to achieve your goals. Hal also shares tools like letter writing as a way to connect, communicate, and commit to your future self.
Hal Hershfield is a marketing, behavioral decision-making, and psychology professor at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management. His research, which sits at the intersection of psychology and economics, examines how we can improve our long-term decisions. Hershfield publishes in top academic journals and contributes op-eds to The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, and other outlets.
Hal earned his PhD in psychology from Stanford University, has received numerous teaching awards, and was named one of “The 40 Most Outstanding B-School Profs Under 40 In The World” by the business education website Poets & Quants. His book, Your Future Self: How to Make Tomorrow Better Today, is out now.
