A Goal For Your Development
If you got into a car and started driving but didn't have any idea where you were going, would this drive end up being successful? Some might say yes depending on what their purpose was, but most would say no this would be a waste of time and gas to just drive without a specific destination in mind. This is why goal setting is important, as it keeps athletes focused and motivated toward their destination. I am going to not only tell you it's important to set goals, but also provide three easy steps to properly set goals to set you up for success. First you need to think of attainable goals you want to achieve within the next 3-6 months; these are called short term goals. After you decided on your goals you need to put a daily plan in place on how you will achieve these goals. This will include specifics which you will list under that specified goal. Finally you need to read these multiple times daily and be consistent, persistent and patient as you work daily on attaining each goal. All my clients are required to set goals and share them with me prior to our second session and then we reevaluate those goals in 3-6 months to make sure we attained many if not all. I highly recommend setting goals if you do not currently do so.
