The Psychology of the Reminder
At the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy in Central Florida, students come from all over the world to learn our golf training system and to “Train Like a Champion.” Every junior golfer is unique in their personality styles, golf swings and tournament goals.
Our training system provides individual goals and drills in each area of their golf training including technical, mental, fitness and on-course strategy.
The problem with many goals in life is that they remain just that, lofty hopes and dreams for the future. But with proper planning and follow-through, we develop the goals into short-term milestones and weekly drills to eventually be able to achieve the overall goal. Our coaching team uses simple reminders to help students remain positive and focused on their long-term golf goals.
Each student is given a GGGA wristband as an ever present reminder of the goals that they’ve set for themselves and dreams they want to pursue, whether it’s playing collegiate NCAA golf, turning pro or lowering their overall handicap. It’s unobtrusive, subtle and a perpetual reminder to remain focused on their goals and dreams.
This year GGGA is using the eco friendly wristbands from Rapid Wristbands (www.rapidwristbands.com), which we had customized in the US. Rapid Wristbands let us design our own wristband with no minimum order, offered same day production and rush shipping all with no hidden fees. The best part? We even enjoyed the benefits of their promo: buy 100 or more and get 100 wristbands free.
What goal reminders do you use to make sure you are achieving each one, small or large?
