Setting Goals to Improve Your Life and Happiness - Part 2 (MP3 download)

By Edwin A. Locke

 
This course is a major expansion of a talk by the same title given in 1985, focusing in depth on the topics of  work and love. The work section discusses such issues as discovering what career you would like; healthy and unhealthy ambition; self-marketing; work vs. family; and money. The section of love contrasts the Objectivist view of love as egoistic to altruism and narcissism, and then presents numerous examples of what it would mean specifically to love someone egoistically, including the important role of the conscious mind in sustaining a romantic relationship.
