A lot of people know about goal setting. And many of them "practice" it. 

It usually comes at the end of December each year where they set their New Years Resolutions. They vow to lose weight, eat better, do more exercise, read more, save more, start their own business, work hard to get the promotion, spend more time with their loves ones. And the list goes on.

Some people set and hit their goals. And they're often the ones who are killing it, and advocating for the importance of goal setting.

But there are also some of us who set the same goals, time after time and make the same resolutions year after year. And each time they're going unfulfilled.

What's missing? Why does it seem easier for some people than for others?

In Episode 10 of The Badminton Podcast, I talk to Henry about hitting goals rapidly.  More specifically, I share 5 proven steps that will take you from where you are right now, to where you want to be. We talk deeply about where the internal drive and motivation comes from to achieve our goals, as many of us can run out of steam and find ourselves settling for what we have, rather than reaching for what we want.

May 25, 2023 2 min read

As a quick recap of the general differences, a head light badminton racket is often better for speed and easier to manoeuvre but doesn’t generate as much power. A head heavy badminton racket is usually better for power but is a bit slower and harder to manoeuvre.
