2011 Goals

It’s the end of the year, and with the end of the year, comes the beginning of a new year. A chance to start anew. Everyone will be setting goals. Some easily achievable, some achievable with focused effort, and some a little too lofty. I have personal goals, work goals, and CrossFit goals.

I’ve spent some time thinking about my CrossFit goals, what they should be. Should they be easily attainable? Should they require effort? How much? Should they be all about me?

I think that it’s important when setting goals, to ensure that they are achievable. It wouldn’t be good, for example, for me to set a goal of power cleaning a car. It will never happen. Or competing in the Olympics. Also, not going to happen. Or even skydiving… NOT going to happen! So if you set goals, ensure they are attainable ones, even with effort. Something that you know you could achieve, with the right investment of effort. And, if you set them, commit to work towards them.

Here are my 10 CrossFit goals for 2011, in no particular order. By writing them down and posting them, I am commiting to them. I will work towards achieving them. Some are easily achievable, some will require some focused effort, and some might be a bit lofty. Some I may not make. And some I may get within the first week.

1. Consistent and multiple muscle ups
2. Butterfly pull ups
3. 10 HSPUs in a row
4. Body weight clean and jerk
5. 100 double unders in a row
6. Sub-4 Fran
7. Eliminate my horrible work out face
8. Blog at least once a month, but aim for two times
9. Help someone else achieve a goal
10. Learn a new skill – TBD

Have you set yours?
