I love podcasts, and I’ve been obsessed with a new one lately. It’s called Chasing Scratch, and it’s about two guys trying to become scratch golfers. Don’t worry, this won’t be about golf. Six years ago, Mike and Eli set a goal to become scratch golfers by the end of the season. A scratch golfer is a top level amateur. Six years later, they’re still pursuing that goal.
Great observation: “The whole point is living a life of love, of relationships, of faith, of family, of real friendships, of work that serves other people. In other words, do the things that you need in your happiness, hygiene, and then you'll succeed plenty. Happiness, first. Success, second.”
> what is your willingness to look stupid in front of people on a range?
That's such a great question, in general.
I'm still getting used to putting myself out there. I find it helps not to take things too seriously. I feel like if I can laugh at myself and my own foibles, and be honest with myself that I'm just a student (at whatever I'm doing), then looking stupid becomes the expectation and I don't mind it as much anymore. I don't know if that makes sense... 😝
