Can you believe it? We’re already at the end of January. I am confident that by now you’ve set al your goals for the year. So this post might be a bit after the fact, but as it is my first post, and I am a firm believer that you only achieve success if you begin with the end in mind, I still would like to share some thoughts with you.
When I ask my clients what their goals are, I typically get very similar responses: ‘I want to win a medal at nationals’, ‘I want to be selected to play Super Rugby’, ‘We want to win our league’ etc. These are however ‘high-level’ goals and it is near to impossible to effectively focus on achieving them. We then work together and break these down, so that ultimately they have goals that they can focus on, that is within their control, and of which the achievement of will automatically lead to the achievement of the initial goal.
