Goal setting can be extremely beneficial, not just in cycling but in many areas of life. Poorly planned goals can have a negative effect and may end up leaving us feeling frustrated, disappointed in ourselves and unsatisfied. That said, most of us set goals once or twice a year, i.e. at New Year and around end June (halfway through the year). However, studies have shown that only 8% of people sustain their New Year’s resolutions, pointing to the face that most of us are perhaps getting something wrong. So, how do we set goals that we can stick to and achieve? Read on for more!
This should get you going with helping you frame and achieve goals. We are at the beginning of the second half of the year, so if you are off-track with your goals - use the SMARTER method and reset those goals you set out to achieve at the beginning of the year. Another thing I find that works well with framing goals and seeing them through is to write them down. So incorporate these ideas into your goal setting, and let us know if they help you! Keep Cycling!
