Oooo sounds deep, doesn’t it? Well kind of…
Today we will be looking into where you can ride safely, the basics of goal setting and how this can help in all areas of life.
Think of life as one big road trip. You can go through life without any goals and everything might be just fine. Sometimes though, the simple act of identifying a goal and working towards it can be very satisfying and take you on a path you never expected.
Goal setting can be extremely varied. Goals can be:
- Short term or
- Long term
Short term goals could be:
- ‘by the end of the week I’m going to ride my bike three times’
Long term goals might include thing’s like:
- getting your drivers licence
- saving up for a new bike
- Finishing the school year
- Deciding to go to TAFE or University
Even long term goals can be broken up into small achievable goals, this makes the BIG seem not quite so big and also gives you a sense of achievement and satisfaction along the way.
Today we are going to put that into practice with setting a goal for EVERYONE to try their hand at a BUNNYHOP!
