I made lists of New Year goals and resolutions over the years, but I always found the fade out of enthusiasm and lack of results more painful than the original condition I was trying to improve. Over time, I learned to make small adjustments for much better outcomes!

Staying Authentic
One distinct, and very dated, memory I have was how I use to redirect my goals to match what my friends were doing in theirs. I accepted their preference to hang out with the same old crowd, for instance, by changing my mind about what I wanted to do in my free time. Essentially, I was living a life that was not authentic for me at all. It lasted longer than it should have, of course, but eventually, I moved away from it because it didn’t make me happy. It taught me a huge lesson, too: the less I accommodated myself to others, the more likely it was that I could remain true to my goals and what was important to me.

Although planning for the next season starts the day after the last season, January is the perfect time to look at the year ahead and get ready for the Home Opener in May. Back this month, Shamrocks’ Head Coach Bob Heyes, Captain Matt Yager, and top goal scorer Rhys Duch talk about their plans for 2019.
