We’re on Day 9 of New Year’s Resolution season.

And if you already missed a day of your streak.


The sooner you get the “perfection” monkey off your back the better.

“But Jeff, doesn’t that mean I failed?”


In fact, the opposite is true.

When our goal is perfection, there’s only one place to go…


So, when we inevitably miss a workout (which will 1,000% happen), you didn’t fail.

Instead, you learned:

  • Life gets in the way.
  • You may have tried too much too fast.
  • Which tactic or strategy doesn’t work for you.
  • The world keeps spinning.

“Now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.” -John Steinbeck

Once you take the pressure of perfection out of the equation, you’re free to just be good.

And you will immediately feel a weight lifted from your shoulders (I’m sure there’s a terrible shoulder press joke built in there, but I’ll spare you the cringy-ness).

If you miss a day…

No shame.

No guilt.

No beating yourself up.

Start again the next day.

#nevermisstwice is an important skill to develop.

Instead of trying to be perfect, we’re trying to accumulate wins.

If you missed yesterday, no big deal.

Start again today.

You’ve got this.


PS – If you’re really struggling to find a tactic or strategy that works for you, we’ve spent the last 10 years honing our training programs specifically for golfers to not only get fit, but to play their best on the course.
