It is that time of year where people start to look at resolutions they aspire to, but inevitably struggle to maintain.
Setting goals is an essential start to any training program and must be done so in a structured and careful approach.
When setting goals for a new year, it is important to follow these simple principles to ensure you don't set yourself up for failure.
Goals should be:
- Measurable - this means there should be the capacity to be able to show that there has been improvement. A faster run, higher jump etc;
- Observable - goals should be easily seen by the athlete on how they can be achieved, a process and course of action;
- Achievable - there is no point setting goals that an athlete cannot reach or achieve, this will only cause disappointment;
- Timely - goals should be set in a time period that is not only achievable but also keeps the athlete motivated in trying to achieve.
