Example: “By the end of next month, I want to be able to run the  mile in 5 minutes and 55 seconds” Outcome: Focus on competitive results Not always under our control Performance: Achieving of a standard irregardless of competition o Theoretical explanation for the goal setting and performance relationship Mechanistic (Locke) Goal setting essentially influences performance in one of 4 ways Directs attention toward elements of the skill you are trying to  perform It mobilizes your effort  Prolongs your persistence  You will learn new strategies to accomplish your goals  Cognitive (Burton) Emphasizes performance, not outcome  3 points Goal setting influences your psychological state o Linked to motivation Having goals lessens your anxiety and increases your self  confidence We feel that these goals are within our reach o Controllability  o Performance changes occur Goal setting is a powerful technique for enhancing performance, for  producing action, and for obtaining results

Goal setting Principles o Types of goals Specific: measureable, explicit, numerical   Allows one to see how they are progressing Difficult but realistic: goals should be challenging yet realistic Unrealistic goals lead to failure and frustration Short term and long term: short term goals allow us to see  improvement and this motivates us to keep on track for our long term  goals Performance rather than outcome goals Generally speaking, your own performance is more critical than  looking at the outcome Practice goals and competition goals Much more time is actually spent in practice than in competition,  therefore we continually need motivation to keep us going Positive, not negative

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
