#173- Long-term Pickleball Goals are Forever

The beginning of an year is when everybody is focused on goals.

Goals are a fine thing, the problem that can arise sometimes when we, as pickleball players, frame out our goals in a way that can lead us to frustration.

In this episode I share with you a timely topic on goals and how to use them in a more positive and constructive fashion.

Framing is always going to be where we’re going to start everything from. How we define the goal is key to whether it works for us and whether it helps us avoid potential problems later down the line.

There’s a difference between short-term and long-term goals. Short-terms goals are finite while long-term goals are about always, there’s nowhere to arrive at it, it’s not a race.

Same case applies to pickleball, there is no finish line in terms of our pickleball improvement journey, as long as you continue to remain curious and interested in knowing more, you’ll always have something to learn.

Hola. Hello. Konichiwa. After 40 years playing tennis, I am now a full-time pickleball player and professional. As a 5.0 rated Senior Pro Pickleball Player and an IPTPA-certified Master Teaching Professional, my focus is on helping players like you learn to play their best pickleball. In 2016, shortly after starting to play pickleball, my friend Tom and I jumped into the highest division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning it became clear just how much there is to learn in this seemingly simple sport – a lifetime of learning if you so choose. Since 2018, I have been on a mission to share my knowledge of pickleball so other players can enjoy the game at a higher level and attain their pickleball objectives. When not studying or playing pickleball, I like to travel with my other half, Jill.
