What’s Your Destination?
Embarking on the beginning of a new season is when coaches and athletes begin to map out yearly goals. Returning athletes may have thought about their previously dedicated destination and want to change course. The goal to accomplish is a critical component in setting sail on the destination. Without an agreed upon port to travel to, the path will likely lead to athlete frustration, burnout, and lack of clarity.
Understanding where you want to go helps both coach and athlete create a roadmap that will lead the athlete towards their goal. It will illuminate a brighter and wider path for both coach and athlete to travel on through the athlete’s career.
Setting sail on a journey with no destination will likely lead to athlete and coach disappointment. And understanding of where one wants to go provides a clarity and understanding that mindless travel will not.
So, what’s your destination?
Decide what you truly want to accomplish this season. What do you want to accomplish in your athletic career? What do you aspire and hope for?
Write it down and be as specific as possible.
Why is this outcome important to you?
