|Are you suffering from a lack of motivation, stuck in a rut trying to improve your game only to be frustrated by a lack of results? We've all been there, believe me. These days, it's not hard to understand given the challenging times we live in. Maybe it's time for a sharper focus to get you back on track.
Take stock of the areas of your game that are letting you down. If you don't already, organize your practice time and devote some extra time to those problem areas. Be sure to spend some time on the strong areas of your game too. There's no point in ONLY practicing the things you struggle to get right. It can be a downer and chip away at your confidence. Here's a way to re-focus your practice
- Measure your progress regularly -- Nothing derails good motivation faster than lack of feedback. Golf is supposed to be fun!
- Work on your game with a specific ROI in mind -- or you'll never achieve the results you desire. You can do this by putting measurables in place to track your progress. (start tracking fairways and greens hit and putts, etc.)
When you can see that you are making progress toward your goal, you will likely be motivated to double down on your efforts to keep making those gains.
Being motivated to excellence starts with -
- knowing your WHY
- leveraging your strengths to play in the sweet spot of your game
- and consistently measuring your progress
