Lessons From Golf On TV
Anyway, I watched as some of the best golfers in the world, time after time, hit the ball into one or more of the water hazards or sand traps with which the course is loaded. It was nice to see that even the pros make mistakes, but the lesson I learned was two-fold. First, these people, although at the top of their game, could make mistakes. And second, when they did, they simply dropped a ball where their errant shot entered the hazard or pulled out the right club, calculated what they had to do next, and tried to execute the shot. No whining. No, "I can't catch a break." Just put that mistake behind them and keep going.
Make of that what you will, but when I realized what was going on, I decided I was seeing a lesson played out--not about golf, but about life in general. How about you?
