Setting daily goals

Setting Daily Goals

Importance of setting Daily Goals…

Setting yourself goals motivates you for the short-term to work towards them to achieve. By setting daily goals, it focusses you mentally for the day ahead, prioritising different tasks set and helps to organise your time throughout the day.

A few tips to help meet your daily goals…

Most important of all is to be disciplined with yourself, having great control of the mind and motivation from setting the goals, all the way through to fully completing them means that you are more likely to not only achieve the goals, but to achieve them to the best of your ability!

Being organised means that you can prepare yourself for the next goals and having the ability to manage your time well so that you can meet all daily goals set for each day. This also means planning… Don’t set yourself that many goals for one day that you haven’t got time in the day for anything else. Even if you just have one… Two or three goals a day, it is a starting point to having a productive day.

By cutting bad habits out of your daily routine, this frees up more valuable time for you to focus on your daily goals, in a positive and productive way. A bad habit for many to eliminate is procrastination! By allowing yourself to procrastinate increases the strain you give yourself to achieve your goals meaning they are done to a standard that is not the best of your ability. By allowing yourself to become distracted leads you to becoming less focused on the task. Also removing the tasks throughout the day that may not be necessary or that may slow you down or restrain you from achieving your daily goal.

Examples of healthy daily goals to set:

  • Step count
  • The most common step count daily goal is 10,000 steps
  • Water intake

Fact: Did you know, the daily water intake one person should consume a day is 6-8 glasses. By staying hydrated your brain can function properly and allow you to focus of the goals you have set yourself and other daily tasks.

  • Balanced calorie intake

Tip: Ensure you are eating a balanced diet, many people track calories, but sometimes it is more effective to track the items of food you are consuming in one day rather than just the total calories. For example, if you were to have the target of 1,400 calories… One person could eat 1,400 calories of chocolate and the other eat it as a balance diet.

I have been doing these sessions with Performance To Summit and Dave Pickles for the last 3 years and cannot stress how much of a positive impact that these sessions have had on myself and family. Without a doubt the sessions are tough, but they are done in such a way that they are enjoyable and we look forward to them as a family. The sessions are all year round in all weathers,(rain, snow wind – all of them together) and during the winter in the dark, the true testament to me is that not only do my teenagers want to go regularly, without being pushed, but they along other teenagers within the group have been known to drag their reluctant parents to a session in the rain and dark in January, which is down to Dave, his motivational skills and the inspiration he gives us. The benefits we get from these sessions are not only physical, I can see how we have all grown in positive mental attitude, self-confidence and general wellbeing and I can see that in others who are part of the Performance To Summit family. I am not sure what I would do if these sessions ever stopped which was a massive concern for me once lockdown started, however, Dave launched the on line version which has been a fantastic success although I do still miss the face to face sessions and the interaction with the other Performance To Summit fitness family members.

Dave is so supportive and encouraging even when he’s pushing you to improve.
I have been involved in his fitness sessions for many months now and they keep me strong and flexible and as a 60+ year old I find this extremely important
I highly recommend his sessions - you won’t regret it

Laura - Kingsmead

The sessions are hard, but fun (if that’s possible)? Dave’s endless positivity turns any event into a positive one. The sessions during lockdown have been great, not only in order to keep fit but also to keep connected with others. We laugh, we smile, we grimace, but we are all fitter and stronger as a result. Why not give it a go?

Laura - Northwich

I began my journey with Performance To Summit following a recommendation from a friend who said it may help me improve my fitness and strength and help to resolve a long standing problem with sciatic pain caused by a problem with my Piriformis muscle.
When I began, I was reasonably fit having exercised regularly throughout my life, however this pain was causing me problems and I was becoming frustrated by not being able to exercise as I would like. I informed Dave of my injury and the exercises I took part in were adapted where needed to help with this injury. Through attending regularly and developing correct form on the functional exercises given by Dave my injury improved, to the point of being pain free. This was a really positive outcome and I continued to regularly attend Dave’s sessions and my fitness and strength has improved greatly. Initially I could not do more than a few sit ups or press ups and I can now confidently and correctly complete many sets of these during a session.
At every session Dave asks if there are any injuries or restrictions and then the exercises and sessions are adapted as needed. This is always done in a positive, reassuring and motivating way, so you never feel like you cannot achieve. His positivity and enthusiasm are unmeasurable. I feel fitter and stronger than ever before.

When I first started attending the Performance To Summit fitness sessions, I had ruptured my ACL and was waiting for surgery. In the weeks prior to my operation, through the fitness sessions, Dave encouraged me to get my knee and hamstring as strong as possible. Following surgery, even before I could walk without crutches, Dave devised exercises I could do whilst sitting and using my crutches in novel ways to keep my upper body active and me challenged! Through every stage of my rehabilitation, Dave was full of encouragement and constantly adapting exercises as part of the session to keep me motivated and fully involved. Still being able to be part of the Performance To Summit team was a huge boost mentally; being outside with an amazing group of like-minded people is great for self-esteem. The support I received from Dave through Performance To Summit was invaluable to my recovery; he made me believe in myself that I would reach my ultimate goal of getting back on the hockey pitch. Even though it was a year from operation to achieving this, Dave was always positive, always encouraging, and always listened to how I was feeling and how hard he could push me without ever making me feel like it was too much. Without Dave’s constant encouragement and positivity, I know my rehabilitation would have been much harder - his drive drove me - it’s infectious!

Neil -Sandbach

I have had lower back pain for many years and suffer from occasional acute exacerbations which can severely limit my mobility. This can be very frustrating for someone who is very keen on sport and exercise! I have attended the fitness sessions run by Dave for a number of years and he has provided great help and support in managing this chronic condition. Dave is able to tailor his sessions to help with rehabilitation, recommending appropriate exercises to increase mobility and core strength. He also pays great attention to the psychological aspects of injury, providing constant encouragement and motivation, which is key to recovery.
