My wife and I just talked about this last night. Not about an Aussie looking to put on mass, but in progress versus goals.
My wife hangs up a sheet with her goals so anyone that comes in our house can see.
We also have a "feats" wall in our workout/game room. All of us (kids, wife, me) put a stuff up there. My oldest does track and swimming. He puts all of his PRs up there. My younger kids put their scores on the school PE test. We put how many books we read in a year or month. Grades, tests scores, checkers record, etc... If one of us sets a PR, we mark it.
I believe you need both. When we get pissy about not being able to set a PR or meet a goal, we can look back and see that while the goal itself is still months or years away, we've already gotten so much closer.
Thus marks the end of my pretentious speech. Good luck.
