Sports Psychology Tips:  Three Types of Goals; Performance, Process and Outcome Goals

Performance goals are things you can do that you are 100% control of  such as the number of hours you will train and number of repetition in gym. Performance goals focus on success or failure at the task.

Process goals focus on mastering specific skills such as skating, puck control,  passing and shooting.  Executing process goals increase the probability of achieving your desired outcome.  Process goals break things down into manageable components or actions to improve your tactical and technical skill development.

Outcome goals such as “I want to make the national team” or “win the championship” etc. However, outcome goals are usually not under your full control. Outcome goals can be huge motivational factor or become a major source of pressure and frustration. Athletes must balance performance, process and outcome goals to reach their optimum motivational level.
