    Been thinking a lot about this myself lately.
    Seems like the toughest thing is managing the necessary splits between comfort zone cruising and putting yourself out there.
    Reaching one’s goals usually requires a marathon rather than a sprint.
    Pushing the pace too fast or too often will burn you out quickly.
    But it’s easy to get settled in the comfort zone and forget when to get back out there.
    I’m thinking that like many other things, sound project planning is the key.
    In 2012 I started by spreadsheeting my sports golas for year with deadlines.
    Using this I managed to meet most of them and exceed a couple.
    This year I have a more detailed schedule to keep me on track and try to fit more in.
    Pretty sure this is going to be the key to juggling a busy career with a too long list of sports goals,

      Exactly! The problem of the pleope here nowadays is ‘sticking with “comfort zone”‘! Actually, it is not only the problem of the children (including teenagers), but also of nearly everybody. Otherwise, WHY do the pleope spend (waste? :-P ) so much time, money and effort for all sorts of certs, dips and qualifications? And WHY shall employers ONLY want (or only choose) applicants with ‘RELEVANT qualifications’??? THAT is a MAJOR PROBLEM of this society!!!
