Every year Kelly puts together a goals packet for everyone one the team. The questionnaire asks about short term goals, long term goals, showing goals, etc.
We then round up one on one to discuss and execute a plan to meet those objectives. I really appreciate that KMT is focused on helping riders achieve their goals!
Today I treated Kelly, Emma, and Brook to lunch at Zachary's Pizza to review plans for Ellie in the upcoming year.
It was great to have the entire team together to take the pulse of Ellie's progress and identify areas of improvement.
I'm probably to most excited about the revised lesson schedule. Currently it's a bit, shall we say, flexible. While I really appreciate being able to jump in and out of lessons, I've found that without a set schedule I'm less likely to a. actually schedule lessons and b. work hard in them. Additionally we're experiencing a bit of "square peg, round hole" in trying to fit in with the groups. What we really need are shorter privates focused on the things that we're struggling with.
One of the primary challenges is finding a time that fits with both the KMT schedule and my work schedule. I hadn't realized that Emma had been arriving early to beat the traffic so once I'm home from travel in Feb we're going to begin twice weekly lessons at 7am, a Saturday pop in, and Sunday fun day.
I think I'll do much much better with a set schedule to follow and we'll go from there!
Until then- see you in a few weeks Ellie!
