It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog If you want something enough, stay disciplined and focussed and most importantly train smart you will achieve your goal! Think about what you're trying to achieve whether it's reducing your body fat percentage, improving your marathon time or smashing your WOD record and apply this and you will see new levels to your motivation, approach and it will help to keep you on track. We've all see the acronym SMART and I've blogged about it in the past, but here it is again, but with a tweak! Challenging, otherwise what's the point... Specific, otherwise how do you know what you're trying to achieve... Measurable, so you know where you started and how far you've come... Agreed, talk with friends/experts so that you're plans are made stronger and supported Realistic, so that it is something that you can achieve, but only if you work hard (see challenging!)... Time bound, so that you're under pressure (which is a good thing!) to achieve... There's an old sign up at the gym in the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines - it simply says, "It will come"
