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.

Kieva's graph of improvement remained consistent in the third week and it appeared that she had substantially adapted to the new lifestyle. Another positive indication is that she appeared to have done solid research on her chosen role model, evidenced by all of the detailed information in her reflection book about a renowned Camogie player.

The fourth week saw more improvement in her performance; in fact, she looked like a totally transformed person brimming with self-confidence. It seemed she had fully adapted to her stringent workout, regulated diet and disciplined life. The reports and coach's comments all showed significant improvement in her speed, strength and stamina. In that regard, it also appeared that all her actions were integrated and directed towards achieving her goal in a manner consistent with the self-determination theory (SDT) of Deci and Ryan (1985).

On the last day of this week when I asked for her final feedback regarding this intervention project, she said nothing, and instead, stood up and raised her hand for a shake, before bringing out a greeting card that carried a single line in bold letters: "Now I know Life is Far More Beautiful than I Anticipated Earlier! Thank You Very Much!"
