I hate golf. But I love golfing.
The game itself is so frustrating because you have moments of brilliance and then fall apart shortly after.
It feels impossible to figure out most of the time.
But that’s only because I don’t do it enough.
You see, golf is a game that requires a lot of time to actually be good at. You can’t just do it here or there and expect to get better.
You have to be consistent.
It’s a lot like life – inconsistency kills excellence.
I haven’t written a blog post for over 2 months. I got busy. Selling a house, reno’s to a new house, the life of an entrepreneur, and having a family.
All reasonable excuses for being busy.
But, it meant that I stopped writing for a while. And the last month or so, every time I went to do it, I didn’t have anything to write. Not anything that would be good, anyway.
Or at least that’s what I thought.
But then I remembered some wise advice I’d come up with a while ago about the only way to get better is to do something.
And then I also remembered what I always remind myself in golf when I haven’t played in a while – it’s all about rhythm.
That’s what I say in my head. Otherwise, I’m swinging too fast or too hard trying to find that perfect shot. But it doesn’t work that way.
Instead, get back into rhythm and keep swinging. Don’t get frustrated. It’ll come back if you just keep swinging.
So if you’re like me and have been stuck not doing what you wanted to do because you’re not feeling it…
Just swing. Then swing again. And again.
We go through seasons in life where things just don’t come as easily as they used to.
But just because you’ve stopped doing something doesn’t mean you need to give up on it.
I hope you take a moment right now to dig deep and decide to pick up whatever it is you know you let fall down.
