Three polls: longer-term goal setting for your MTB skill development
My goal is to get you thinking about goals
I’m working on a post about the science of longer-term goal setting for MTB skills development. When you want to get better, how can goal-setting help? What strategies are ineffective?
I’m curious about your experience setting MTB-related goals and whether you plan to do more in the coming weeks/months/year.
I’ve created three quick polls for you to take below, designed to get you thinking about goal-setting.
After you take the polls, add a comment that gives context for your answers. Doing that might help clarify your thinking, and it might help inform me as I work on the upcoming post.
Poll #1: Current goals
Poll #2: Past goal-setting results
Poll #3: Goal-setting strategies

I have always been a person who likes to set a challenging goal and work towards it consistently. It is part of the fun for me.
My recent 'goals' have just been to ride more, either due to recovering from injury or to try and build my general fitness. I used to set more specific goals in the early days of RLC (eg learn to wheelie) but got disillusioned by failures to gain the desired skill.
