Setting Goals for 2010 by Justin A.
Did you reach the year-end goal you wrote on the whte board? If you did, congratulations, job well done. If you did not, assess why. Was it a reasonable goal? Did you stay focused? Let a missed goal be a chance to learn. If you got close, keep pushing and get it. The goal area on the white board is a permanent fixture. Feel free to add you goals there!
Since the turn of the new year is a time of reflection and resolutions for so many people, here are some simple and general goal setting guidelines. You have probably heard these before, and guess what, they work!
1. Be Specific, Make it Measurable, Give it a Date – Vague goals lack energy and the ability to measure progress. Sometimes the more vague a goal, the more overwhelming it can be. The more specific and measurable the goal, the easier to mantain forward progress in achieving that goal. Give a goal an accomplishment date and it’s easy to see if you are on track for success or need to adjust the plan.
2. Make Your Own Goals – Goals should be personal. You shouldn’t let others set your goals for you. Take ownership of your own goals!
3. Write it Down – Commiting to a goal by taking it out of your head and putting it in writing makes the goal more real. The more public you can make your goal, the more motivation you will have to make it happen.
At CrossFit Victrix, we tend to focus on health and fitness goals through exercise, nutrition, and recovery. But realize, a disciplined and balanced life in all areas is more useful then success in only one! If you get in a goal setting mode, expand it outside of your physical body into other areas. Here are some examples of other areas:
Marriage / Dating
Here’s to 2010. May the pursuit of your goals be relentess, unwavering, and successful!
