What did we learn from the Olympics?

OK, so I’m using the Olympics as a ploy to get you to read this coaches corner – guilty as charged. But here’s the thing – Olympians use coaches – specialists in their fields such as weight training, nutrition, sport-specifics, psychological aspects, etc. – and they succeed in achieving their goals. This is essentially what I do with clients!

Goal setting is a critical component of anything in life. Some people are very “goal oriented” while others are not. I understand that goals may not motivate you, but, as the old saying goes “If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you get there?”

Whatever it is that you’d like to change, setting a goal is THE critical way to make that change occur. There are some important steps that people often miss in goal setting. My clients set goals for our therapy and we work towards those goals. When the goal is achieved, we decide if we’re finished, or if we should set a new goal. It’s really that easy.

There is much online about SMART goals – if you haven’t seen this acronym I’d suggest you look it up. Setting SMART goals, though, is only part of the process. You also will want to CONNECT to the OUTCOME of the goal – What’s important to you about achieving the goal? What’s important about having what you’ll have when you reach your goal? What will be different and how will that affect you and those around you?

If you answer those questions, you’ll have real RESONANCE and reasons for doing the hard work and persevering when things get tough.

Goal setting is an important part of life. If you want to live with purpose and intention one thing will absolutely help you get there: setting SMART, RESONANT goals.

    I think my goals during the smemur are definitely going to be reading.Another goal of mine is to try and work on my math. Even know I don’t really like math I want to do good in it.Remembering is my other goal. I need to remember how to solve problems and know how to get answer’s for next year! Hopefully I do because I usually forget most of the time.I need to improve in math the most and will be trying my hardest for next year. I want to finish a couple of chapter books during the smemur.Next year I have to put all my focus into school and Recess and Lunch I can talk to my friends not during class. I think if I worked on that I could definitely do better in school.
