    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Goal Setting

The Saints baseball program has begun it’s off-season workout program.  It consists of 3 days, the first being chest/tricep/core, the second legs/core, and the third back/biceps/core.  We were given packets to track our progress over the next few months.  This program is somewhat new considering we get to track our progress in our program packet.  In my opinion this is a wonderful idea because we can more easily set goals for ourselves and also push ourselves to achieve more – to lift more weight than the previous time we did each workout.

Goal setting, in my opinion, is one of the best things a person can do for themselves.  Whether it is with an off-season workout for a sport, a person setting goals to be a better person , or as a student trying to get good grades; setting goals only makes us better.  Even if we fail to reach a certain goal, it shouldn’t be because we didn’t work hard enough, or put in the effort to do so, it should be because we just came up short.  With this being said, we shouldn’t have any regrets about how hard we have worked.

I strongly suggest, if you don’t already, to start setting goals for yourself. Number one, when you achieve a goal, you can be satisfied with how much effort and time you put in and know that you accomplished what you wanted.  Number two, goals can be as simple as finishing homework before 10pm, studying everyday for a test the next week, not eating between meals, or blogging once a day (in my case). Number three, the higher the goal the better it feels when you accomplish it, so don’t be afraid to set your goals high. Lastly, keep track of your progress so you can physically see how you are progressing and what you have achieved to that point.

I will leave you with a phrase and a term to help you along the way.  Both have come from our baseball program.

“Demand Excellence All The Time!” – If you have this mind set with each goal, there is no telling how much you will achieve.

Kaizen, is a Japanese word for improvement. On the baseball team we use it to mean, getting better in small increments everyday. If you put this at the front of your mind during each day, you will step by step get closer to your goal.

Best of luck to everyone in all of their life goals, big or small!
