The start of every year is often filled with lots of excitement and often nerves about what’s to come over the next 12 months.

It’s also a great time to set some goals, ditch some bad habits, and hold yourself to a higher standard.

Obviously, you don’t need to wait until January to do this but we’re here now so why not?

When doing your new year goal setting, remember this:

  • It should scare you

Your goal should be big enough that even the thought of it makes you a bit nervous inside and part of you worries you might not get there.

When we set goals like this, we’ve only got one real option – to go all in.

The only way you’ll ever know if you can get there is to truly leave no stone unturned. Don’t leave anything to chance. In fully committing to the process, you will give yourself the absolute best chance of reaching your goals and to quote the big dog, Theodore Roosevelt, “If you fail, at least you fail whilst daring greatly”.

Here’s an example of how to set your big goal for the year (this is mine and it terrifies me)

Goal: To go <10 hours in Ironman Cairns on 18 June 18, 2023

Daily actions on:

  • Complete every training session for the correct duration/distance and intention
  • Sleep 7+ hours/ night
  • Stretch calves, hamstrings, hips, and lower back 3 x week
  • Fuel prior to hard session/ >90 mins duration (45-60g carbs/ hour)
  • >180g protein/ day

By setting not just my goal but a few actionable items, I know every single day whether I am moving toward or away from my goal.
