When you are setting your goals are you using SMART goals? Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant & Timely.
Know exactly what you want to accomplish
eg. I want to perform my standing back handspring on the spring floor by myself
How will you know you met your goal?
eg. I know I have met my goal when I can confidently perform my back handspring on the spring floor by myself.
Make sure your goal is not too far to reach, but far enough to be challenging
eg. I have a handstand with proper form. I also have my back walkover with straight legs and proper form.
Link the goal to something important to you; something that inspires you.
eg. I have mastered all level 1 tumbling skills. I am currently on a level 1 team and would like to move to a level 2 team. I need to master all level 2 skills to achieve this.
When do you want your goal to be met? What steps are you taking to make it happen?
eg. I want to have met my goal in the next 6 months. I will do this by continuing to do my Cheer District workouts 2-3 times a week, I will practice drills that my coaches give me at home, and I will attend 1-2 tumbling classes per week for proper instruction.
