As a coach, you might read the title of this episode and think that someone hacked the show. But, the reality is that your constant goal-setting might be holding you back from becoming the best version of yourself. Cynthia breaks down the top three reasons why she doesn't believe in setting goals for everything in life and how she's managed to embrace the journey instead of racing to the finish line. It can be so easy to fall into the trap of finding all your self-worth and value in your ability to reach a goal. Sometimes our competitive nature takes over, we get tunnel vision, and we stop at nothing to achieve what we set out for. In some situations, this can work to your advantage, but it's important to recognize when it starts to take over your life. As a recovering chronic goal-setter, Cynthia shares her tips for how to make more well-rounded goals and become more flexible and forgiving when you come up against roadblocks. Listen in to hear more about reframing your approach to setting and achieving goals.

Cynthia is joined by ITN grad and founder of MotherBar, Elle Gail. Elle spent the first 20 years of her career leading marketing teams at some of the world's top brands and admits that she fully subscribed to the hustle and burnout culture of the corporate world. After having two kids back-to-back and grappling with the oh-so-common mom guilt, she discovered ITN and used the course as a way to find a better balance and deepen her health and wellness knowledge. It was around that time that she started to explore the benefits of CBD and met with another ITN alum who had connections in the industry.

She highlights how the ingredients in the MotherBar CBD mints work to use your senses to come back to your senses and explains what her vision is for the brand. Elle and Cynthia also discuss the phenomenon of the primary caretaker's “second shift,” how to recognize and work through your mother wound, and the process for giving yourself permission to just be.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: A subjective account of what it's like to join an EA-aligned org without previous EA knowledge, published by lukasj10 on August 30, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. TL;DR We (Healthier Hens (HH), a CE-incubated EA-aligned animal welfare charity) have hired a mid-career Country Manager for our operation in Kenya. He had no previous EA knowledge or experience. We asked him 15 questions about his experience entering the EA world, learning about the key concepts and the community in general. This post is an overview of his subjective experiences including overarching themes such as what seemed common and different. Some of the benefits felt upon entering EA and his perspective on EA awareness and community. Finally, we reflect on the above from the organisation's standpoint. Introduction After having chosen our pilot country of operations, we hired a Country Manager (CM) based in Kenya, to lead our efforts on the ground. Despite having previous experience working in the humanitarian and animal welfare sectors, he had no previous knowledge of Effective Altruism (EA). We thought that learning about his experience jumping into the EA world could be useful for other EA-aligned orgs hiring externally and upcoming ones, considering what challenges it could bring. We carried out a semi-structured interview, asking 15 questions (plus follow-ups) to understand what his experience was like as an applicant and employee. This post is a summary of the responses that our questions elicited, presented under the umbrella of several overarching themes that had come up. Readers are advised that this is a highly subjective account of early professional engagement with EA concepts and working principles. We are, however, very keen on encouraging other orgs that have gone through similar hiring processes to engage their new employees with similar inquiries to better understand how we can transition more smoothly, since the focus on attracting talent is definitely here to stay. Differences and similarities - the before and after Among notable differences between regular non-profit programs and those stemming from EA, the focus on positive impact in the (at least relative) long-term stood out. Having seen several short-term interventions come and go in the region, our CM is inspired by the community's attempts to seek measurable and quantifiable ways to achieve change. In the case of Animal Welfare (AW), he was yearning for solutions going beyond one-dimensional, 5-year “band-aid solution” interventions. EA thinking of how to have a long-lasting, multigenerational effect with positive flow through effects made sense, even when considering the experiences and frustrations of conventional NGO stakeholders. Using the ITN framework was also a fresh breath of air - our CM found regular interventions reliant on emotions and public opinion far too often. Data should permit arriving at better decisions. This was a major motivator when considering applying for the job. Despite counterfactuals being a new concept to the entire animal welfare community in Kenya, the more he had learnt about it, the more he wanted to help lead an organisation that could potentially have a positive impact on millions of hens worldwide. A surprising discovery for him was to find out that Open Wing Alliance (OWA) is part of the EA community. It then made great sense why the group advocates for the cage-free transition, and how impactful that can be. Regarding the recruitment process, our CM found it surprisingly thought-provoking and useful - each part of it taught him even more about the organisational concept and ultimate final impact that we seek. In past recruitment experiences, there were practically no stages based on theoretical or project management skills, with most focus on face-to-face discussions. He experie...
