Think you have some tough goals for yourself or your business? How about rowing the Pacific in a 29-ft boat for over 8 months?! Best Year Yet® coach Simon Teague talks about his company’s work with a history-making rowing crew and how coaching based on values led to new world records.
“My 2015 plan is pretty much done and I’m ready to start fresh. Can we just work on a new plan for 2016?”
My coaching client had unknowingly uttered a common end-of-year refrain. It’s the number one mistake that people make even before they begin goalsetting for the year.

One question I get asked a lot is how to set the right goals. People worry that they aren’t being realistic when they let themselves dream or that they might be setting goals that are way too big to achieve – all of which begs the question, “What dreams are too big to be realistic?”
As with most things, the answer to this question comes down to how important your dream is to you. The bigger the dream, the more dedication it may take. Does that keep you from setting big goals or inspire you to find a way to get the results you want?

My partner has a saying that helps me keep myself from getting caught up in the stress, drama and weighty-ness of work situations – “We’re not saving lives here.” It’s a great reminder that I don’t need to put too much stress on myself over the little things. Since I have stepped into my role at Best Year Yet®, I have a different perspective on that saying.
Before we write in depth about the other principles, one of our Best Year Yet Partners, Lloyd Franke, has written an overview about all of the principles, so you can see the big picture and start to imagine how it could work for you.
