Goals are a desired result worth pursuing. Goals allow us to keep our motivation directed toward a specific destination or result. Time and place goals are appropriate. Goals in regards to behavior (getting 8 hours of sleep, going to bed at the same time, sacrificing social time for homework and recovery, studying in the library instead of your room, running hard in practice, icing after practice, visualizing, helping others, being a good TEAMmate, working hard on drills and lifting and not just going through the motions) are most important. Set Goals and not Expectations!
