What is PGST?
Practical Goal Setting Technique is a coaching system designed to help you create practical, empowering goals that come from the deepest callings of your heart. PGST gives you the ability to break those goals down into real, do-able actions, then allows you to uncover and face the often unconscious fears that have been blocking you from making real movement towards that which you are truly called to do.
PGST differs from many forms of life coaching or personal coaching. It is grounded in the human reality that there are things we have power over and there are things that we don't.
It's goal actualization through goal non-attachment.
It’s learning to fall in love with action for the sake of action.
It’s embracing creation over self-help
It's living bravely in practicality as opposed to hiding out in fantasy.
It's making friends with your fear instead of running or denying it.
It’s taking the focus off the results and engaging the motto: “Sow well; reap nothing”
And what the ^&%@ does all that mean…?!
Well, if you have 6 minutes, I’d like to talk to you about a cup, and how you can learn to live in your power...
Actress - CW's The 100 "I found Greg and PGST at a crossroads in my life. I knew I wanted to take my career to the next level but did not know how. It seemed like I kept self-sabotaging myself due to my own fears and was paralyzed in neutral. PGST helped me set a clear and focused path to my goals, big and small, and implored a gentle kick in the butt whenever I needed it. I was making progress so quickly and simply. I achieved my Super Objectives within a month! Thank you Greg!"
Singer/Songwriter Executive Producer & Host of: "Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia" WWE Alumni "I’ve been blessed to achieve a lot in my life, yet many of my true desires were still eluding me. Since working with Greg Sims a lot of my dreams are finally coming true. Greg has a very simple and impactful way to get you on the right track to achieving your goals! Thank you Greg for your tremendous guidance and caring about my future!!”

Fashion Designer Carly Jean Los Angeles "Greg has been so incredibly instrumental in my personal growth as a wife, as a mom, and as a business woman over this last year. I’m so grateful for his wisdom, insight and ability to help me process through what matters most in life, set goals, and work through challenges like I have never done before. His tools are gold, and his work absolutely changes lives.”

What I found in working with Greg was that his technique offers expansion in all areas of life – career, financial goals, relationships… PGST simplifies the process of finding time and getting your mind outside of any current realms of thinking that may have you stuck. Working with Greg is challenging in all the right ways. I saw changes within the first two weeks. Highly recommended!"

Having the weekly accountability, a weekly plan of manageable actions to take, and a system to keep moving when things get tough, is invaluable. PGST is a great system, and Greg is a great Coach and Mentor. It’s been an investment that has paid off exponentially for me."
Founder of VOKARE X - Experiential Events "I truly appreciate Greg’s uniquely different approach to personal and professional coaching. Greg understands we all have different goals and one size does not fit all. Since working with Greg, I have started a company, that within less than a year is excelling at a rapid rate. His goal setting techniques and the tools he provided me, coupled with my passion to do the work, is the reason I can confidently say IT WORKS!"
Vice President of Wealth Management, Fortune 500 Company "Greg helps you look at the core of what is holding you back from achieving your full potential. He gives you the tools to achieve the dreams you have been too scared to pursue, whether in love, work, or your journey in life.

Musical Artist “When I began working with Greg, I had been struggling with (among other things) writers block. Since working with Greg, my relationship with music and writing as a whole has changed profoundly, and as a result I’ve found a totally new sound, written and recorded a new album, found new management, and am playing bigger and better gigs. I realize how unlikely it must seem but it's all true! With PGST my approach to my career, to my life, has profoundly changed."
Vegan Blogger, Founder The Hungry Wolfe Granola I came to Greg at a time in my life when I was battling a bizarre mix of low self-esteem and a need to unleash all this creativity. My interests were all over the spectrum... photography, acting, and I had begun to write. Greg had me focus on three goals I really wanted. It might be one of the most valuable gifts I learned from him. I was now able to take small next right actions-Things were bite-sized and more digestible. PGST is amazing."
Emmy Nominated Animator/Fine Artist/Musician "PGST is not some 'guaranteed to make your dreams come true' crash-course. It’s about learning how to turn dreaming into doing with rigorous honesty, willingness and gentleness. By consistently taking the simple daily actions of PGST, I’ve transformed the way I view, think and ultimately act towards my dreams and goals. I used to think of “Goals” as a dirty word. I now see my goals as a simple plan to engage imagination with reality."
Actor - NBC's Chicago PD "I started working with Greg at a time when I was feeling lost and directionless. I had goals I wanted to achieve but didn't know how to make progress or push through the noise and distractions. I made more literal progress within two months of working with him on both business and creative goals then I had in the last five years of trying to do it myself. In our own way, we all try and reinvent the wheel of life, Greg gives you the tools needed to do it."
Filmmaker "I came to Greg and PGST when my life with five kids was becoming more manageable. I was able to devote time to my individual purpose. A veil lifted, and I learned practical ways to apply myself to the goals that I set. I soon realized that it was not about the goals, but more about the discovery of what was possible. I created a new outlook on getting things done through his impeccable, passionate and supportive guidance. He helped me see I could change the course of my life."
Private Yoga Instructor “Working with Greg has given me some of the most crucial, effective, durable tools in my toolbox. In the past year, I have gone from dreaming of starting up a private yoga teaching practice to actually having a thriving practice! I have gone from someone who for decades had thought and talked about wanting to write–to someone who’s writing every day. Greg pointed me both inward, outward, and forward at the same time. Well worth the money, twice over!"
Writer I came to Greg with one goal: start writing again. I had been a professional writer for more than fifteen years, and in that time I had never once experienced writer's block. As it turned out, I was struggling with more than just my work. Working with Greg helped me see how my relationships with family, friends, and my own health were driving my writer's block. Greg helped me take a more holistic approach to my life goals."
Actor "Working with Greg has changed my life. Within ONE month of working with Greg I booked a major blockbuster film, a guest star in a pilot, and a role in a web series. I did all of that by using the principles and techniques that Greg has taught me. PGST is designed to help any individual conquer their fears. It helps identify exactly what is holding you back and then teaches you how to break through. Not only has Greg helped my career, he has also helped bring balance to my life."

"I have been coaching producers, CEO’s, musicians, small business owners, actors, school teachers, influencers, financial executives, writers, fashion designers, homemakers - individuals from all walks of life in Practical Goal Setting Technique for over a decade. My clients range from those just leaving school and entering the "real world" to multi-million dollar entrepreneurs, leads of hit TV shows, leaders at Fortune 500 companies, Emmy winners to yoga teachers, and so on. It has been a profound joy witnessing my clients, through using techniques I forged out of my own trials and triumphs, transform the relationship they have to their goals, allowing their lives to bloom and truly flourish.
How was PGST born? In 2002, I hit bottom with addiction to drugs and alcohol. With the generous help of others who had overcome compulsions similar to my own, I soon found a path toward physical sobriety. The key to this path was an intrinsically linked combination of Acceptance and Surrender, i.e. – discovering what is in my power and what is not in my power. The key itself had been forged in the fires of my own suffering, or, to put it more precisely, forged in a new understanding and new relationship with that suffering. Eventually, I felt called to re-address my career and skills as a professional actor with this deeper yet fledgling experiential understanding on the nature of power. I began to ask myself – 'What am I truly pursuing? – Do I even know? What are the skills necessary to building a career and life of substance? Do I possess these skills, and if not, how might I acquire them? How do my deepest wounds relate to my greatest gifts – to my “callings”? How do I concretely participate with reality and leave behind my obsession with the result and “Getting It Right”. Engaging with questions such as these were the seeds of PGST.
The technique and my skills at helping to awaken and inspire my clients continue to expand. PGST has become one of the great passions of my life."
