Goal-directed persistence is one of our executive functions that enable us to set goals and follow through to the completion of that goal. It also includes overcoming challenges with getting and staying motivated. Challenges with goal-directed persistence can lead to work being completed late (or not at all), frustration and feeling overwhelmed. Improving your goal-directed persistence can help you reduce these feelings and regain control of your work and home tasks.

Executive functions are a set of skills that allow us to direct our focus to plan, start, remember, and continue tasks: inhibition, cognitive flexibility and working memory.

This video takes a practical approach to boost your goal-directed persistence, demonstrating that these skills are critical to being effective and succeeding both at work and at home.
