Podcast: Energise Your Life Part 3: The Elastic Band Effect

Getting the tension just right: Your goal creates an elastic-band effect that you can use to achieve it easier. Dr Cobus explains how to get the tension in that elastic band in your brain just right to achieve your goal

In this third episode, Cobus talks about how to know if your goal is a ridiculous “pie-in-the-sky” dream, or maybe too small for you! Make sure to have an elastic band at hand to ensure that you are getting the tension right!
