Looking Back at 2009

Well, that time of year... to reflect on my goals of last year and see how I did (just like I did for my goals for 2008).

My overarching goal for 2009 was to stay down. As a reminder, the key aspect for goals is to ensure you are specific about how to reach your goals.

Here were the specifics for my 2009 overarching goal (let's see how I did):
  • Keep practicing alone at least once a week. Did this when feasibly possible.
  • Practice extenuating my SPF (Set, Pause, Finish) when I practice. Tried to do this.
  • Try to ingrain that when I am nervous or on a tough shot, that staying down is the MOST important thing for me to be successful. Need to continue working on this.
  • Read more about staying down. I did read some on AZB, but not much else. :(
  • Watch videos about SPF. I did not do this at all. :(
  • Continue to watch Buddy Hall - he stays down well! I DID do that!
  • Practice NOT MOVING. I worked on this.
  • Continue to be open to tips and receiving help about staying down (and/or the pre shot routine). Yes! And I received many good tips in 2009 related to this!
The main reason to set goals is to enhance performance in sports (or business). I would say that reaching the goal above DEFINITELY achieved that! I feel my performance was enhanced because I was successful at reaching my goal. :)
