Learning

by greycoopers

Never stop learning.  While playing a PGA Wii game at my brother-in-law’s party this Christmas, I was reminded of a story I heard about Tiger Woods in his early days.  On the penultimate day of a tournament his problematic swing had caused him to slip down the leaderboard.  His coach suggested an exercise to fix the problem.

That evening, instead of going out with his friends, he spent several hours in front of the mirror in his hotel room working on the exercise.  He was up early the next morning to spend another couple of hours honing his technique before starting the day.  He won the championship.

If champions seek out instruction and take every opportunity to learn, we probably should too.
