Excerpt from Term Paper:

Also, following a role model and maintaining adequate sleeping hours and scheduling concentration sessions are very much attainable.

V.4. Relevancy

I tried my best to direct all of her actions towards achieving her primary goal (i.e. To establish a training routine capable of allowing her to develop into one of the top Camogie players in the country within the next year). All recommendations for her physical, psychological, and cultural trainings are oriented comprehensively toward the same goal. For example, her commitment includes sacrificing her frequent pizza sessions and refraining from obliging colleagues' requests to attend late-night parties, and practicing concentration and visualization of achieving her primary goal.

V.5. Time-Sensitivity

I have set various deadlines for Kieva to attain sub-goals that would definitely contribute to attain the fuller goal within a specific time. For example, I set 30 days to transform her dietary habits, 60 days to transform her cultural habits, 200 days for developing stamina, skill and speed, and further maintaining and developing the same for another 135 days to achieve the main goal of establish a training routine capable of allowing her to become one of the top Camogie players in the country within a year.
