It’s Wednesday, so let’s get over that big ‘ol hump!
Today, I’m going to make your life easier by removing all the clutter. And give you one single thing to focus on.
Lemme as you something…
You ever deal with “Shiny Object Syndrome” in your golf and fitness?
You’ll know you do if you find yourself constantly jumping from “new” tactic to new tactic, just hoping the next one is the magic one that will finally work for you.
I would be shocked if you haven’t done this to some degree. And you’re definitely not alone.
And I think if you’re a golf lover, which I know you are, it’s especially easy to get sucked into whatever tactic or strategy is on the cover of Golf Digest – By the way, how can they have a life-altering, game-changing tactic every 30 days? It can’t be to sell subscriptions, right? They’re research must just be incredible, I guess.
But, I wanted to share something with you that has helped protect me against the “Shiny Object Syndrome” the last decade or so.
Here it is:
Everyone in our Crew needs a golf and fitness North Star.
Your “North Star” is something that becomes your reference point. It’s something you can use to judge other tactics and strategies against, to decide if they’re right for you.
For golfers, we’re lucky.
Playing our best golf is our North Star.
If a golf or fitness tactic doesn’t help us achieve that goal, then it’s probably not worth our time. No matter how good the promises of the “new thing” are.
For example, Orange Theory is still the hot thing these days. I have one by my house. And that thing is always packed in the morning.
Orange Theory has a lot of good things going for it…
Is that kind of workout going to help you on the course?
If you look to your North Star, it’s not really going to help your game.
And asking that simple question (Is this going to help me on the course?), is what is going to keep you on track.
You’ve got this.
Your #1 Fan,
PS – If you’re unsure whether a strategy or tactic is designed for golfers to play their best, then make it even simpler on yourself and join the 18STRONG Membership where that is also our North Star.
