This morning (Mandatory Golf Friday) I leaned over to a friend as we were walking down the fairway and I said, “Is there anything better than golf on a Friday morning with buddies?”
It’s definitely up there.
We get so obsessed with golf cuz we get to be athletic and competitive with our buddies…in a great way.
Now, there is a dark side to that…
A lot of times, we tend to obsess over our results – especially golf and fitness.
- Jumping on the scale every day
- Repeatedly checking your GHIN (it hasn’t changed since your last round:)
Here’s the problem:
Obsessing over those things doesn’t actually change them.
You’re just watching a number – without having any effect on it.
Even worse – when those numbers start going the wrong direction – you get emotional about them…
Which leads to poor decision-making – usually because of impatience.
Instead – obsess over the actions that lead to those results:
- Workout X times each week, every week
- Hit the range X times each week, every week
By obsessing over the right actions – you’ll have an effect on the results you’re after.
And you’re less likely to get sidetracked because of your emotions.
Now, get out there and play! After all, it’s Friday.
