First Tee Core Values: Dreams & Goals
What is the difference between a dream and a goal? Dreams are the end result of a series of goals. Whether you have a dream for golf, your career, or your retirement, goals are an essential part of achieving your dream.
Most often, you will need several goals to reach any particular dream. The more detailed your goals are, the more likely you are to complete them. For example, if your dream is to hit longer drives, your goals should be focused on the fundamentals that you need to learn in order to accomplish it.
You might begin with swing length, then move on the weight shift and "club lag." It's also good to sub-divide each goal into smaller chunks to make the learning process easier. So, you might focus on rotating your hips and finishing with all of your weight on the front foot as "sub-goals" of the weight-shift category.
Everyone should be encouraged to Dream, but everyone needs Goals to make it happen!
