Practice doesn’t make perfect……

But it sure helps! I think it was Lee Trevino who said, “The harder I practice, the luckier I get.” To achieve a certain level of achievement you need to devote time and effort toward that goal. Not just golf, anything. To really separate yourself from all the other good players, you need to work hard at it. There are millions of good players, but very few truly great ones.

Deliberate and focused practice. Jack Nicklaus said he never went out just to hit balls on the range. He said he was going to go work on specifics like, chipping, high fades,  low hooks or , yes, even his 1 iron. He and other top players in ANY sport, focus on aspects of their game that need work. So should you also develop the habit of working on something that needs work. Always aim for a target. Think about what you are doing. Work toward a measurable goal.

I coach a golf team, and sometimes what I write and talk about for them applies to my business world.  What does this golf lesson have to do with your business?  A lot!  Practice at making your business a success by working on specific targets.  Focus on your goals, aim for a target.

Learn to recognize your strengths as well as your weaknesses. Work to your strengths and mitigate your weaknesses.  Concentrate on your core business, and bring in an expert to handle the “outside” needs.  Always have your goal in mind when making business decisions!
