How To Keep Your New Year’s Resolution (and any other one for that matter)

Posted by: scottstratten on Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

Remember to use M.A.C.E.!

Motivation – be sure it’s self-motivated, not external
Attainable – make sure it’s within reach. We’re talking days, not months
Controllable – you have to be able to control the goal. Weight loss is not a controllable goal, it’s a potential result of a healthier-living goal
Enjoyable – if you don’t enjoy the process, you wont reach your goal

Jason’s Story – When passion for life trumps everything else

Posted by: scottstratten on Saturday, June 28th, 2008

Jason McElwain, nicknamed J-Mac, was an autistic teenager who graduated in 2006 from Greece Athena High School near Rochester, New York. He’s noted for scoring twenty points during the final four minutes of a high school basketball game on February 16, 2006. It was the last home game of the season for the Greece Athena team.

McElwain had actually never made it onto the basketball team. He was considered too short (5′6″/167 cm) and hadn’t demonstrated an adequate skill level during tryouts. But the coach quickly saw his love and passion for the team and made the boy team manager. At the end of the basketball year, inspired by McElwain’s dedication, coach Jim Johnson thought he might take the opportunity to get McElwain onto the floor during the final home game-provided, of course, that the Greece Athena team was ahead by several points. The coach figured this would be a wonderful way to demonstrate an appreciation for McElwain’s constant enthusiasm and all that the boy had done for the team.
