Wisdom Wednesday – Leave Your Thoughts Behind

Photo Nov 12, 8 33 29 PM

Disc golf has been noticeably devoid of books for quite some time.  I even wrote a post about it here.  While I value all of the books on our disc golf reading list, there really isn’t anything that scratches my disc golf itch.  Last Wednesday, Patrick McCormick released his book “Zen and the Art of Disc Golf”.  I have not read it yet, but I wait anxiously for its arrival.

Once it gets here, and I’ve read it, I’ll post a full review.  Patrick has also graciously agreed to an interview.  I’m really looking forward to getting to know him a little better and to bringing you some insight into a person who has done something that really no one else in our sport has done yet.

This also marks the start of a new feature here on the Mind Body Disc blog.  #wisdomwednesday has been a social media tradition for a while and I look forward to bringing my contribution to that content here.  This week we start, appropriately, with a quote from Patrick’s book.

This quote encapsulates probably the biggest reason I play disc golf in the first place.  When I’m on the course, playing a solo round, everything else melts away.  I don’t think about work, family, friends, problems, or anything else.  It’s my time to be with nature.  It’s my time to rejoin the flow of life around me.  There’s a certain rhythm to life if you listen close enough.  Playing a solo round clears my mind so that I can hear that rhythm.  It centers and grounds me.  It puts me right both mentally and physically.

Head on over to Amazon to pick up Patrick’s book (available on kindle or paperback), or head to his website to pick up a signed copy.  We’ll see you next week with more #wisdomwednesday.
