Just the Tip – Give Yourself 10

At my home course, we have leagues on Wednesdays. I’m very happy to have Wednesdays off. This allows me to get there before they start and get some practice in. Being that it’s a very busy course, it also allows me to see group after group show up to get in a round after work. I noticed something the other …

No BS Product Review – Mando Klank T-Shirts

A few weeks ago, Joey over at Mando Klank reached out to me to ask about advertising on this site. I’m always flattered by those requests as it means that what I’m doing here is reaching a lot of people. I’m also very leery about adding advertising to the Mind Body Disc brand. I’m not against it as you can …

Wisdom Wednesday – I’d Rather be Trusted

I was listening to a podcast on the way to work today and the point was made that there is a “trifecta” of interpersonal relationships. The goal should be to be liked, trusted, and respected. They then went on to talk about which of those was more important. If you are a parent, you already know the answer. To be …

Just the Tip – Do What Your Mom Told You

Regardless of what we thought when we were kids, our Mom’s actually knew what they were talking about. We resisted. We fought. And now we are grown up and regularly say to ourselves , “Oh my God, I’m becoming my Mother!”. Why? Because she was right and now we are old enough to know. So this week’s tip comes to …

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 …

Slipping Into Orbit – The Latitude 64 Raketen

If you’ve followed me on line for any length of time, you know that I’m a huge fan of the discs from Latitude 64, Westside, and Dynamic Discs. It’s pretty simple reasoning for me. I like their consistency and I like their plastic. Out of all the plastic I’ve tried (and I’ve tried it all), theirs feels the best in …

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 …

Just the Tip – Discs Don’t Have a Steering Wheel

The only way you can throw a disc is straight. Weird statement when referring to something that usually flies every way except straight.  I’m not talking about how the disc flies, though.  I’m talking about how the disc is thrown.  So maybe I need to change that statement slightly. The only way you can throw a disc is straight….  At a …
