In this episode of the Plan Goal Plan podcast with Danielle McGeough, we explore the issue of worthiness. Many generous, skilled, and talented people suffer from feelings of unworthiness which leads to self-sabotage, suppression of ambitions, and persistent self-doubt in achieving personal and professional goals. Recognizing these symptoms is the first step towards breaking the barriers.
Danielle McGeough, a professor, a mother, a planner addict, and a recovering overachiever, shares her insights drawn from the intersection of research, practice, and play. She reveals the common behavioral patterns that can indicate a sense of unworthiness, such as reluctance to set higher goals, chronic self-doubt, and intentional self-sabotage.
McGeough also exposes traps like the comparison of personal progress with others, ignoring personal achievements, overcommitment, and seeking external validation. These false solutions only fuel the feelings of unworthiness and impede our growth.
Through this podcast, McGeough guides the listeners on how to overcome these internal barriers and cultivate a deeper sense of self-worth. It encourages listeners to develop skills in value creation, learn to be deeply present with themselves, and master setting appropriate limits to tasks that do not inspire or connect us.
For everyone seeking to break free from the shackles of unworthiness, McGeough concludes with a hopeful message, empowering listeners to reclaim their worth, achieve their goals, and enjoy deep satisfaction in their relationships. Empathy, presence, and acknowledging one's value could not only boost one's self-esteem but also enhance meaningful collaborations with others.
Whether you're struggling with achieving your goals or just want to boost your self-esteem, this episode of Plan Goal Plan is bound to guide you on your path to feeling worthy of your dreams.

Are you seeking to adopt consistent habits? Despite consuming several habit-formation resources like Charles Duhigg's Power of Habits, James Clear's Atomic Habits, or Tiny Habits by B.J. Fogg, consistency may still feel elusive. If this resonates with you, this episode discusses a concept called "empowered habits."

This method challenges the conventional understanding of habits, offering a more tailored approach that's grounded in individual values and emotional well-being.

Through a blend of research and practical exercises, the episode proposes ways to create habits that align with our intrinsic values, build community, and strengthen emotional resilience.
Beyond that, it provides an overview of how empowering habit loops encourage creativity, account for our natural energy cycles, and respect the need for flexibility. Catered specifically for high-achieving women, the episode unpacks how these empowered habits can foster meaningful growth and a fulfilling lifestyle.
Whether you're a professional, a planning enthusiast, or someone seeking personal growth and balance, this episode delivers unique insights and actionable steps to help transform your life.

In this episode of Plan Goal Plan, we explore the idea of dull goals—that's right, the mundane and ordinary tasks that often form our daily routines. Have you ever looked at your to-do list and wondered if you're doing something wrong? Perhaps you feel societal pressure to be more exciting or adventurous. But what if we told you that there's beauty and immense value in these seemingly dull tasks?
We celebrate anyone who feels they've become "dull" and provide techniques to embrace this state and see the creativity it fosters. Planning and goal setting need not add pressure to your life but can instead serve as a means to clarify purpose, reclaim time, and achieve goals playfully and lightly. 
In this episode, we break down all the ways dull goals can work to our advantage. They can be a form of mindfulness, a spur for personal growth, or even a foundation for more exciting pursuits. What's more, we explore how creativity can transform dull tasks into engaging projects, introducing an element of fun into the mundane, and how gamifying certain activities can also add an element of excitement and challenge to seemingly dull tasks.
Join us, as we revel in the dull, and discover how it can lead to a life that's anything but. We'll also delve into how to distinguish between constructive dull goals and those that might be a sign you're doing something you don't want to do. Finally, we extend an invitation to embrace dullness, to rid yourself of societal pressures, and to find joy in the simplicity of daily life.
So whether you are a planner addict, a professional, a mom, or a recovering overachiever, tune in to tap into the potential of the dull. Let's explore together how to make memories, do meaningful work, and live a life of balance and delight. Come and find value in simplicity and watch how it can transform your life.
