The authors examine the relationship between conditional goal-setting (CGS), anxiety and depression. They performed a descriptive study to measure conditional goal-setting, pre-competitive state anxiety, depression, and sporting performance among 58 adolescent swimmers competing at the Australian National Age Championships. They suggest that conditional goal-setters make their happiness and well-being conditional upon achievement of single, specific concrete goals. They also confirms the relationship between CGS and depression.
