Wisdom Wednesday – Motivation and Bathing

At the end of your days, you’re going to look back on your life and say one of two things. “I wish I had.” or “I’m glad I did.”. The difference between which of those you end up saying could simply be how motivated you were.

Punch Par in the Face

One of my readers, Jarrod Job, hit me with this saying the other day. Considering I have my second to last tournament of the year this weekend, I thought it was appropriate. Since I’ll be spending what little spare time I have getting ready for the tourney, I figured instead of a long post this weekend, I’d just leave this …

Wisdom Wednesday – Believe the Best

Stop watching the news… We live in a paranoid world. According to the news, everyone is out to get you. You need to watch your back and trust no one. Lock the doors and hide your children, the world is an unsafe place full of awful people who will take advantage of you if given the slightest chance. Ah the …

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 – Try Someplace New

I’m spoiled. At least when it comes to disc golf courses I am. I am lucky enough to live 2.5 miles from an amazing course with 36 holes of disc golf goodness. Squaw Creek in Round Lake, IL is currently rated on DGCR as the best course in Illinois. It’s my home away from home. Ever since they revamped this …

Wisdom Wednesday – Get 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 – Prepare to Win

It’s true. With very few exceptions, everyone wants to win. In the heat of the battle, everyone exerts their will towards winning. So why doesn’t everyone win? Aside from the fact that there can be only one winner (and only one Highlander too, but that’s a totally different topic), very few people prepare to win. There are a lot of …

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 …

Wisdom Wednesday – Leave it Alone

Despite what my parents thought when I was a kid, there is such a thing as good enough.  Sometimes things are just fine the way they are.  This might sound obvious, but I need to remind myself of that sometimes. I listen to a lot of podcasts.  Most of the subject matter is typically ways to improve yourself.  Diet, exercise, mental …
