It’s the end of the year. And what have you done?
So, as we near the end of the year, it’s time to look back and reflect upon goals that you set yourself back in January. What were the goals? Did you hit them? If you did, amazing, if not…why not? Was it poor planning, poor preparation; or something genuinely out of your control?
Lots of goals that are set at the start of the year can change due to any number of circumstances. My goals changed dramatically when my wife said the words, “We are having a baby”.
At that very moment, my goals changed from hitting a 110kg snatch and a 130kg clean, to being ‘how can I be at my fittest and healthiest and ready to be the best Dad I can possibly be’.
Now that didn’t mean I stopped training towards something. Training is now about being super fit, healthy and having fun.
Whatever it was that helped you succeed in your goals or not, reflect on it, work out why it happened like it did and make a plan to improve it in time for 2018.
