New Year, New Goals

Jan 08, 2024

Welcome to 2024!!! New year, new me!!! Sound familiar? I bet that it does. You see that phrase all over social media, when you talk to family or friends, or it may be something that you say yourself. In all reality, is it really a new you or is it a new mindset that you are focusing on? Most likely it is the latter, bringing in the new year with a better mindset, a different outlook on the year and the right attitude to get through adversity that will undoubtedly come your way. I love it. But, how can we maximize our potential for the year? How can we work towards making 2024 a success on and off of the field/court? 


Goal setting is a cliche thing to do at the beginning of every year, most of us do it, some of us don't. For those that are setting them, awesome! For those of you who haven't set goals for the year, we are only 8 days into January, lots of time to set them! Goal setting is a great tool to layout everything you want to achieve by 2025. The key is to set goals that are reasonable and growth oriented (focusing on the process of growing as an athlete versus wins/losses). Keep that in mind, growth goals are ideal, I mean you are trying to better yourself over the long run instead of the short term, right? Right. So, as you embark on setting your goals for the year, have them focused, specific, and growth oriented. I also recommend setting goals in these areas:

1) 2024 as a whole (Long term goals)

2) 6 month window (January-July) (Long term goals)

3) Month of January (Short term goals)

Within each time window, I recommend having 3-4 goals that are sports related and 2-3 goals that are "life" related (outside of your sport). The idea is to make sure that you are achieving within your sport and also achieving within life.

I challenge and encourage you to take time out of your day and focus on how you can improve in 2024 and what you can do (goals) in order to get where you would like to be as an athlete and also a person heading into 2025. Good luck and Happy New Year!!!!
