I have often thought, over the years, that golf is a metaphor for life…especially the efforts to improve your game….here are my
thoughts on why I think golf is like life
Stay in the moment (and don’t think about the shot coming up that you always stuff up or the bad hole you just had… just like in
life it helps to stay in the moment, after all that the only one you really have.
Short Term Pain Long Term Gain (when changing your golf swing this is often the case just like some investments and relationships…and
training your dog !!!! and many other things)
When you don’t care your game improves (isn’t this like life, when you let go of the outcome and don’t care anymore often things fall
Cause and Effect (in your golf swing its all cause and effect…just like science !!)
Lay the groundwork and you will get the results. (just like building a house among other things)
The more you put in the more you get out (just like life !!!)
Play to your strengths (in golf as in life)
How you handle the rub of the green can make or break your round ( Just like handling the up and downs of life).
Maybe you have some other things that show how golf is a metaphor for life, let me know if you do and I will put them into the newsletter.
