Two weekends ago, Coach Massey, Coach Kadey, and I went to Lafayette, LA for a Ranch on the Road camp. We had a great time, the campers worked extremely hard and the hospitality was fabulous. While presenting one of Coach Wolforth’s offerings called “Who Wrote That Rule?”, I was reminded once again that the real reason someone succeeds at something is that he has a big Why. As Coach Wolforth is fond of saying, “If you have a big enough Why, then the How will become self-evident.”
I recently had a conversation with a buddy of mine about his golf swing. He was telling me that he needed to improve his game because he didn’t want to be embarrassed when playing with colleagues and potential bosses. He then launched into a diatribe about all of these instructional videos he had been watching on the Internet and how he was trying to work on these very specific aspects of his golf swing. But he told me that he feels like his swing has gotten worse since focusing on these instructional tips. After listening to him a saying came to mind: When in doubt, return to athleticism.
