antigoal (plural antigoals) An undesirable state to be avoided, the opposite of a goal.
The concept is grounded in inversion—a mental model that says that big problems are often easier solved backwards vs. forwards.
With traditional goals, we aim for optimal outcome. We then build systems that will—hopefully—lead to that outcome. This is important and still necessary—but it’s incomplete. Anti-goals leverage inversion to complete the picture.
i.e. Rich, and successful but not be unhealthy, stressed and unhappy.
The generalized process involves four steps:
A goal setting process forces you to think about the journey instead of just the end destination.
1 - Ask yourself the following questions
2- Be SMART
Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-Bound.
SMART goal setting is to make your goal specific so you can track your progress and know if you met the goal. i.e. I want to lose 10 lbs by 14th Aug 2022
3- Write your goals down to make them real
4- Create Action Plan
5- Create Time-line
6- Take Action
7- Re-Assess (weekly) and evaluate
In the pursuit of these goals
Now work backwards to establish your anti-goals.
Expanding on James Clear analogy: If traditional goals are the rudders that set your direction, think of anti-goals as the map that tells you where the rapids are.
Use this to;
Think of anti-goals as being about avoiding the "Pyrrhic victory”—a victory that takes such a terrible toll on the victor that it might has well have been a defeat. (Sahil Bloom)

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
