    To have full confidence in the integrity of my playing shoulder. :(

    Slightly longer-term: to return to my previous standard of play.

    Short Term Goals..

    1)Keep working on footwork
    2)Beat my friend in singles.
    Hehe.. it's like the old classic game of Super Mario.
    Playing against my friends = playing against the bosses.
    I was stuck on level one for ages until two days ago, when I finally beat the top player in my team. Now I've gone up a level.. and I have to beat the boss of the next level!!

    Long term goal: Train hard to be in the regional reps teams..

    since its summer and there isnt really tournaments happening unless i want to go travel to manhattan beach junior international one still not sure if im going. so my short term goals are for summer before the next season and first tournament in september.

    short term goals:
    1.) increase speed and explosiveness on court even more
    2.) increase mental game and stragety more
    3.) keep on improving consistincy more
    4.) basically work on taking my game higher and being better

    long term goals:
    this season overall wasnt a bad one, lost some matches i shouldnt have and played some really good ones. made it pretty far in tournaments usually almost always quarterfinalist or higher (although have done pretty bad in a few). so for the upcomming season my long term goals are.

    1.) make it to atleast quarterfinals or better in national level tournaments again
    2.) beat out some of the national players that i lost to this past season, or give them a hard time while playing them (not an easy win for them basically)
    3.) keep on improving my game through expirence, training, and all else that can be used

    I like this answer. LOL :D

    We have a couple of hotties in our home courts. I'm just not impressive enought to be noticed.

    Therefore, my short-term goal is to be impressive in badminton
    in order to get to my long-term goal
    that is, to get a long-term relationship. Hahahaha :D
    WOHOOOO!!!

    I've been in problems with my wrist for nearly 5 months and I think if I really have to stop playing for one month so that it might recover... and hope I could go for the Birmingham Bonnanza in August...

    that is pretty harsh, but yeah if you do have injures as hard as it is to give up playing for a while got to make sure to give it enough time to heal fully and then stregthen it so that you can get back onto your usual routine of training and playing and all. Best of luck to you and hope that your wrist will heal at a good speed and without any further problems :)

    Short Term - To produce more power, get faster, and have better footwork

    Long Term - To put all those attributes together and get decently far in a tournament
