Resolution #5: Plan a Trip
Many self-help books suggest planning a trip or trips throughout the year. This gives you something to look forward to, or an end goal for which to strive towards. It helps make the monotony of the day-to-day grind bearable because there is something enjoyable to look forward to.
For the Indians, the best possible trip they can plan is another trip to the postseason. After 2013’s brief sampling of postseason play, the Tribe should be hungry to make it back to the playoffs in 2014. Why not then set their sights high for the 2014 season. Setting a realistic goal, like making it to the playoffs, will give them something to strive for during even the worst of times. Even better, the Indians should set forth a plan for how to make the playoffs. That means overthrowing the Tigers, winning the AL Central, and avoiding the absurdity of the one game playoff that was their downfall in 2013.
