Write Down Your Goals

Write Down Your Goals

Yesterday, we started the 21 Day process of striving to be a better ballplayer. Your task was to define your mission statement – Why do you play baseball? Building directly off of that mission, today’s task is to write down your goals.

I’ve gone into detail before about the how to and why of writing down your goals, so I won’t be spending to much time detailing it here. But, now is the time to reflect on your mission statement from yesterday and begin writing down more specific goals that drive your motivation.

Is your goal to be a starter? To make all-conference? To hit .400? Are you a pitcher and want to have the lowest ERA on the team? Whatever it may be, make sure you write down your goals.

You can most certainly have more than one goal, but remember to make each one:

  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Adjustable
  • Realistic
  • Specific

So, head back and read Basic Goal Setting, then grab a pen and paper and get to work. You don’t become a better baseball player by thinking about it, but rather by taking action. And if you want to share a few of your goals with us here, just leave a comment below.
