Seth’s done an interesting short post about unstated ‘away-from’ goals – here’s an extract:

Think about how often your goal at a conference or a meeting or in a project is, “don’t screw up!” or “don’t make a fool of yourself and say the wrong thing.” These are very easy goals to achieve, of course. Just do as little as possible. The problem is that they sabotage your real goals, the achievement ones.

I’m  still thinking about the implications of this and have just blogged it to remind myself to come back to it.
