Make Your Path…

Day in and day out, year in and year out, we are presented, maybe even tempted, by the path we should walk. Some of us are taught to follow the path that is worn, walking over the tread marks and footprints of others. Maybe it’s what we do out of habit or expectation? And yet some of us, sometimes for reasons we can’t explain even to ourselves,  are intrigued by the thought of creating a fresh new path and footprints that only we can create. It’s what only we are convinced is worth the walk and kindles an exhilaration that you can know only if you’ve been even partially there. We wonder what’s at the end of that path and the difference it might make.  At times we might just hesitate and peek around the corner expecting that we’ll get some form of approval and that it’s ok to stretch, maybe be different;  but we never lose that feeling that the end of that path might just be worth it and bring what we won’t regret. It’s up to you to choose that worn path or create that new one that makes you peek around that corner. #NeverLeaveItShort…...

A Father’s Day

Once a year, we as fathers who were born with, and love, the game of golf are treated to a weekend of spending time with family, occasionally sneaking away for a few holes of the U.S. Open championship on Saturday in between our other responsibilities and preoccupations. If we’re lucky, if not calculating, we can partake in the final round of the greatest golf championship in the world.   Yes, this week there’s been endless discussion about the choice and quality of Chambers Bay, but it boils down to the hand you’re dealt with and how you deal with that hand.  It’s a level playing field for all, regardless of the arguments, pro and con. So, to all you dads, here’s to Father’s Day, time with your families, and a toast to the greatest golf championship in the world. In life, as in golf, take your shot. #NeverLeaveItShort…  ...

The Cloth You’re Cut From…

We all set out with what we think is our plan or, in some cases, we end up going with the flow for reasons that  we don’t either understand or are too busy to consider.  But as the days, weeks, months and years speed by us, we will have those moments when we remember what drives us and the cloth we’re cut from..that inspires and drives us. When we doubt what’s next and what’s around the curve.  It’s the cloth that’s at our core and what got us here…it’s in our DNA and, if we’re lucky, will never lose that connection. It gives us confidence and resolve, knowing that we have a base from which to draw when we look at that hill top we need to climb; that next bridge we need to cross; that next challenge we might  be ready to take. It’s steadies us. Do you have that cloth you’re cut from? #NLIS...
