Setting Goals

I asked my High School team to give the Coaching Staff 2 goals this season-
1) 2 Hockey Goals
2) 2 Academic Goals

According to LiveStrong,
A goal is a specific plan of action geared toward obtaining a desired result. Clear, concise goals precede all professional and personal measures of success. In beginning any particular journey, one must know of the direction in which he is heading. People with goals move forward with directed focus, while maintaining the capacity to adjust to unexpected challenges. Doing this, they perform in a way that inspires a sense of balance, purpose and overall well-being in themselves and others.
