Recently I got a text message from my friend up in northern Kentucky about chasing medals and setting goals.
In a recent video I eluded to the idea that I think it’s not always the best idea to fixate on goals too much.
He sent me a message telling me that goals are what push him. In fact, he’s at Brown Belt and the fact that he is pushing it to win a medal is causing him to train harder than ever.
This video is a response to that.
Personally I think goals are great. I set them everyday. I have short term goals, long term goals. All that stuff. And they help make my Brazilian Jiu-jitsu better as well as help give direction in my life.
But you cannot fixate on goals too much. Because not matter what you achieve. You’re always going to want more.
You’re going to want to be better. Whether this is BJJ or some other aspect of your life.
So set goals. Both for Brazilian Jiujitsu and your life. But just remember that you’re going to slip and fall from time to time and you’ll have to dust yourself off and get back after it.
