Probably, I should say upfront that I don’t believe in New Year Resolutions. Mostly they are “pie in the sky”, usually made in hope, with no planning involved at all. I’m sure that by the end of the first week in January, most New Year Resolutions have been long forgotten.
That’s not to say that I don’t believe in planning. I prefer to make New Year Goals that are attached to a plan. My goals are always S.M.A.R.T. goals. Putting a time frame on them, ensures that they will be achieved by a particular date
Using the S.M.A.R.T criteria ensures that goals are specific and not just a vague wishlist.
So here are my goals for 2015
15 Feb: Ballarat Cycle Classic. My entry is in for this event. I have entered for the 85k road ride
01 Mar: Marysville Lake Mountain Challenge I have entered for the 75k distance, which includes 40k Lake Mountan climb (eek!)
