A Game of Golf


The way I have gone about my life recently is by focusing on the tiniest, smallest things that often get overlooked by most. Because I know, that when all those little things add up, they will turn into something great.

People are celebrated throughout their lifetime by others looking at their greatest achievements. The massive obstacles they overcame, the boulders they moved, and the great things they accomplished. But how did they get there? They didn’t get there through half-assing the small stuff and then when the big opportunity comes giving it their all. They focused on the little things. The momentum builders. When you do something how its meant to be done and you do it right, you get that little dash of accomplishment. And by focusing on the little details, you are also building value to your name. I believe you know your on the right path when the small things matter just as much or as more as the big things.

Life is a game of golf…or, at least, this is my idea of how the game should be played. You get out onto the course, and you play the game to the best of your ability, and you try to one up your score each time. You don’t focus on your opponent because their score doesn’t matter. You stray away from your game when you start focusing on what other people are doing. You might play it safe or play outside of yourself. But when you focus on never being satisfied with your past performances, you constantly look to achieve great things. You look to expand your game, to find your limits, and to extend your limits past to where they use to be.

To be able to stand in front of the world and say “JUDGE ME!” Judge me for my opinions, by beliefs, my ethics…because right now I am being the best person I can be at this moment. Yes I have flaws. Yes I have things to work on. But I am constantly striving to be greater.

Focus on the small things today…the tiniest of details. When you take care of the small things, the big things will take care of themselves.

    Good advice, it reminds me of one of my Gran’s sayings – ‘Look after your pennies, and the pounds will look after themselves.’ 🙂
