Having clear goals is crucial for success in anything. Before you dive into the day to day work, it is so important to understand where you want to go in the end. When it comes to Olympic Weightlifting here are a few tips for setting achievable goals:
Set Thoughtful Long Term Goals: Before you start moving in a direction be sure you can answer a few questions: Why do you want it? What will you need to do to attain it? What are you willing to do to attain it? Goals are extremely personal and very unique to each person. Make sure that your goals fit who you are and what you want. Don’t just haphazardly set goals; take your time and make an action plan.
Keep a Daily Training Log: Keeping a training log is an excellent way to track your progress and stay on track. Write down your goals in your book where you will see them regularly and then commit to them every time you walk into the gym.
Don’t forget to be SMART: Design goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and, in my opinion, the most important: time sensitive. Setting a timeline turns a goal that you may reach ‘someday’ into a goal that can be achieved this month or this year.
Happy New Year! We wish you the best of luck in achieving your goals.
