The New Year and Expectations
Each year I start off with noble and very aggressive goals, most of which I don’t reach or require far to many resources. This year is going to be different. I’m not going to focus on the outcome, I’m going to spend my time on the process and how I am going to get there.
My overall goal is to work on my golf game and lower my average score, but I’ve created multiple small and achievable checkpoints that will help me improve my game. I typically shoot around 75 but have those rather rough days. I’m working on a swing change and didn’t play well the other day….not well at all.
Checkpoints for the year
- Practice 156 times (45 balls and 10 min of short game)
- Workout 260 times (5 days per week)
- Play 30 rounds of golf
- Compete in 6 tournaments
My focus is on the process and journey I take to improve my game, I want to enjoy myself along the way. I know I can achieve each of these goals and they are all realistic for me. All of my checkpoints are broken down into monthly and weekly goals with a sheet for me to keep track. I’ll check back monthly and make sure I’m holding myself to the journey.
