If it's Worth Doing, It's Worth Writing Down

When is the last time you really thought about your goals?

  As a coach, I often talk about the idea that if it’s worth doing, it’s worth writing down.  This doesn’t just mean your grocery list, a daily “to-do” list, or a bucket list of things you’d like to do before you pass.  This includes things like your goals.  Whether they are fitness/CrossFit related goals, health goals, personal or career goals, it’s a good idea to write them down.  Every month I sit down and look at my goals and really try to evaluate what I'm doing and how I am going to accomplish a goal I have set for this week, this month or even within the next year. Where am I?  What am I doing to be proactive towards these goals?  What is working and what isn't working?

Does it take time? Sure, but then it's done and you can go back and look at what you've written down and continue to keep yourself accountable.  Don't make your goals so easy that you are constantly achieving them and wondering why you are always achieving them (you should really only achieve about 50% of your goals!), but don't make them so lofty (like you're going to be the first person to build a staircase made of marble and oak to the moon...) that you never achieve them.  Have something you are always working towards and is always in your reach, but you have to work your butt off every single day for!

Have fun with your goals, write them down, make changes to them periodically, and enjoy the process of learning and growing with them.  Have questions about goal setting?  Ask a coach, we love to talk about goals!
