Having goals that are fun and make you happy will pull, instead of push, you toward your dreams. 6. Make short­term goals that prepare you for long term success. ○ These may be training goals (improving strength and conditioning), personal goals (study habits, family commitments, or educational pursuits), performance goals (developing a technical aspect of your routine, prepare for upcoming event, or competitive season).
