Golf is a fairly simple game. You hit a little white (or colored in my case) ball from a tee to a cup in the grass. It's meant to be done in 3, 4, or 5 touches of the ball. Many people think it's a competitive sport, but in reality, I have found that it's you and your skill set versus the golf course.
So you are probably asking yourself, “Hey… This is a Marketing and Sales blog, what does golf have to do with my business?” Well, I have been in business for over 40 years (50 if you count when I made Christmas wreaths and sold them in my neighborhood as a kid). I have almost 10,000-15,000 hours (or 4 times my golf rounds) of experience in business. I have also done business with all kinds, types, and skilled people (from complete duffers to near-pro level). Now, I can categorize them into 5 basic types:
- Good & Fast
- Good & Slow
- Bad & Fast
- Bad & Slow
- Playing From The Wrong Tees
In this episode, we will explore how golf and business have the same goal… getting the ball in the hole (Score) with as little effort as possible!
