Plan like an athlete to make 2013 your best year yet!


Elite athletes regularly reflect and evaluate performance with their coaching team – for many the end of the year or start of a new year is a key point to both do this and plan for the year ahead, establishing goals and how to achieve them. The outcome – performance – process strategy is widely used by high performers – what are the outcomes you want to achieve in 2010, what performance is needed to get there and what processes do you need to put in place for this to happen?

Going through this process will help provide a focus for higher achievement in 2013.  The following questions are designed to enable you to do this.

  • What do you really want to achieve in 2013 – professionally & personally?
  • Can you put these under a headline theme for the year?
  • What do you need to do to make these happen?
  • For each goal outline the performance needed, what processes, resources and support do you need to make these happen?
  • Who do you need to be to achieve these goals?
  • What beliefs and obstacles are getting in the way?
  • What can you do to change these?
  • List your top 5 supporters who want big things for you?
  • How can you get the most from their positive energy?
  • List the people who limit you
  • What can you do to minimize their impact on you?
  • What makes you smile and how will you incorporate these things into your daily life?
  • What regular habits help you stay well, happy and in balance?
  • What single thing if you did it regularly would make the most difference in helping you achieve your goals?
  • How will you reward yourself for achieving these goals?

A happy new year to all.
