There is no better time, than a new year, to wipe the slate clean and set some goals! The problem is, many of us make resolutions that are kept for a few weeks, maybe a few days, and have vowed never to commit to a resolution again. For those of you who are still hopeful, and perhaps to those that can be swayed, here are a few key pointers to help you set some achievable goals for 2017. Setting sharp, clear goals is key and they have to be measurable and achievable. Throughout my sporting career, I have always used the SMART goal setting technique. It's a commonly used tool amongst athletes and increases your chances of hitting your desired targets.

"The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score" – Bill Copeland.

To help you make New Year’s resolutions that are achievable, follow the basic SMART structure to help you get there:

Specific – keep the goal simple and clear. Ask yourself what, why, who, where, which to help you define it!

Measurable – your goal needs to be measurable so that you can track your progress. How much / how many are the sort of questions you need to ask yourself

Achievable – your goal needs to be realistic and attainable. This is where most people fall short as they set an unreachable scope that is impossible to meet

Relevant – set goals that matter to you and are suitable for this time in your life

Timeline – you need to have a target date for each goal. This prevents other day-to-day tasks getting in the way!
