Often we set goals we cannot meet. We may be completely committed to them in theory, and in the ideal world we will achieve them. This isn’t an ideal world and we have both internal and external challenges to be faced and overcome. This week we will look at how to set the right goals, fight the fade, and recover vibrancy.
Unless you are in a sport such as boxing where there is a long time to prepare for a specific opponent (which even then they could have a different game plan to expected), it is difficult to prepare for every nuance. Rewarding achievement recognizes the result, but it is important to focus on the work it took to achieve the result, and in that context, a participation award may have value.
Winning should never be the goal, winning is only a measuring stick for performance. If we focus on the performance, we will see the results improve.
For some people, and especially younger players, there is more joy to be had just by being a part of something and being involved in something new than there is in the result.
