Wisdom Wednesday – If Not Now, When?

You guys rock. I mean that. I get some of the best emails and comments from the people that follow this blog. They share pictures, challenges, successes, and inspirational stories about their life and disc golf. I love getting those emails. The other day I got one from someone who had started playing disc golf later in life. They said …

Just the Tip – It’s the Archer

You’ve done your research. You’ve gone to Facebook, DGCR, DGR, and You Tube. You’ve read the reviews on all the disc golf blogs. You’ve poured over the In Bounds flight guide.

Wisdom Wednesday – Be Content

I’m never going to be a professional disc golfer. There, I said it. I wish it was different, but it’s not. Hang on a sec while I go cry for a bit.

A Disc Golf Rant

A big part of the reason I post positive motivational memes on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram is that I constantly need to remind myself to be positive and motivated. I write posts about digging deep and doing your best to try and inspire myself as much as I’m trying to inspire each of you. I truly believe that the best way …

Wisdom Wednesday – Get Uncomfortable

I’ve often heard and read the advice to do one thing each day that scares you. Get out of your comfort zone and do the things in life that make you uncomfortable. Force yourself to do things that are hard to do. When you hear interviews with ultra successful people, this is almost always a common theme. They are successful, …

Just the Tip – Learn to Laugh

It seems like every time I play in a tournament, I do something that is totally out of character. Something so dumb that I look back and can’t believe I actually did what I just did. I’m not sure why this happens, but it does. Here’s a short list: Telling my group we were playing the wrong hole so confidently …

Wisdom Wednesday – There is No Failure, Only Feedback

I’ve been lucky enough to get to participate in a couple Zen Disc Golf podcasts. It’s been great and we’ve had some fun conversations. In this week’s episode, the subject came up of what does “doing it right” mean in the first place? Who is to say what is the right or wrong way to throw a disc? Watch a …
