notes Notes:

"Goal Example: Hit .400 this season. Goals earn us two big things: 1) Achievement; and, 2) Personal Development"

– Dan Keller (Dugout Captain)

GOALS

  •  Achievement: ego, game ball, all-star team (stuff easily forgotten)
  •  Development: Physical (improved swing, more power, better eye) + Character (work ethic, persistence, adversity)
  •  Setting goals is a skill, skills take practice. We start today: What are OUR team goals?
