Weekly Write Up
Happy Monday! Here is a week in review of some of my observations, thoughts, projects, etc.
The definition of culture from Merriam-Webster is “the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization”
The reason this is a topic in this week’s review is because we are in the process of changing the culture in our facility, but not in a negative way. I’ve noticed that it’s pretty easy going and relaxed with the athletes, which is fine to an extent, however when it comes down to it effort, grit and focus can create an environment where athletes can feed off one another, ultimately pushing them further towards their goals.
It’s not the end-all, be all and there are a ton of different factors that go into achieving success and development, but creating a favorable environment certainly can help.
Effort and Results
Too often we hear about wanting to achieve this or that and goal setting, all of which are great, but sometimes the effort isn’t there. See, effort is more than just “going hard” it’s about doing the little tasks along with the main tasks on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
It’s easy to mail it in because we just don’t want to do it today or maybe it’s just doing the bare minimum in the gym just to look like we’re doing something. That’s okay if you’re okay with it, just know that the results will not make you happy. It seems to be the norm these days is finding the quick fix in the shortest amount of time, however, that is not the case. It takes time and consistent effort to ultimately achieve our goals.
Our lives can be busy, I get it! One thing we can do that has certainly helped is sitting down on Sunday afternoons and writing out the tasks that need to get done for the upcoming week. From there prioritize what is the most important task that needs to get done and rank the others in order. Set a date that each task needs to be completed by. Make copies and keep it with you and check it off as you go.
That does it for this week’s review, stay tuned next week for another edition.
Have a great week!
