We all need goals

Posted on: 28/05/2009

If you’re a football fan, you will know last night’s Champion’s League goals by Barcelona won them a nice title – and other accolades. What you may not know is that Canada is putting its best foot forward to get into the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Canada has only qualified once – in 1986. We have a long way to go to get on the scoreboard.

As a Canadian living in the UK I get asked (or told) about Canada’s absence on the global pitch often. I can reply – in the same vein using ice hockey as an example – but that doesn’t really get down to the heart of the matter. 

But, one man has. CBC Sports soccer commentator Jason de Vos, a national team captain, has been blogging about Canada’s goals when it comes to World Cup qualifying soccer.

According to de Vos, the real issue is ‘getting rid of excuses’.  He has set out some clear goals. Mapped out a path to follow. It’s not the destination, but the journey that counts.

Now a lot more could be said about that philosophy, but I need to get back to work on my own goals!
