Physie goal setting for 2017

Welcome back! It’s 2017 and we are embraced with a fresh new year of Physie! New opportunities, new syllabus, perhaps you’ve gone up into a new grade or age group? The possibilities are endless for the year ahead, and it is now where you decide what you want to strive for this year.

Setting a goal -whether it be a short-term or a long-term goal- gives us purpose, and keeps us accountable. They give us a ‘why’. It’s a long-term vision, and short-term motivation.

The most successful method in setting goals is using the SMART method. This will give you a clear vision and plan of action to achieve your goal!

S – Specific
M – Measurable (can you measure your progress and record it?)
A – Achievable (is it a realistic?)
R – Relevant (is what you’re doing relevant to achieving your goal?)
T – Time-bound (have you set a realistic time to achieve this?)

For example; ‘I want to achieve a full split on my left leg, by the end of term 2’

Once you have decided on your goal and a plan, you might want to create something to help you stay motivated for 6 weeks down the track from when the initial goal setting took place. It’s helpful to create a vision board!

I love getting crafty, and I find creating a vision board super fun and motivating! Simply gather some old magazines and cut out some pictures and quotes that resonate with you. You can purchase cork boards and pins from Typo, kikki.K, and of course, Kmart (Honestly, what isn’t available at Kmart?!)

Alternatively, you could always create a Pinterest ‘Physie Goals’ board! If you haven’t been on Pinterest, you have not lived. I feel excited for you – There’s something wonderful you have yet to experience! Check out my examples below and you will get the picture! You may even be “Pinterested” in Pinterest… Ha!

So, what will your goal be? Don’t be shy – aim high! As the saying goes “Shoot for the moon! Even if you miss, you’ll land amongst the stars”.

We’d love to hear what you’re 2017 goals are, and where you draw your inspiration, and motivation to keep going?!
