Details matter. Something else that I’ve learned, as I’ve worked on improving my game, is that details are extremely important in the game of golf. Wrong foot positioning, incorrect movements of the head, wrong analysis of angles, even if slightly off, will affect the entire trajectory of the ball and ultimately, your game.
We often go through life, oblivious to many of the details around us. People can walk in and out of our day, without us even noticing. The emotions played out on their faces, evidence of who they are and what they’re going through, ignored. The beauty of nature, art, and so many other things are too often replaced by our electronic devices and a myriad of other distractions.
The impact we are truly meant to have on one another, even if it’s only a small impact, may never happen. Those seemingly small details can and do change the trajectory of a person’s day, and at times, a person’s life. We often underestimate the influence our actions have on others, let alone ourselves.
That is a huge mistake, because it is no longer some game of golf. When we ignore details in our everyday lives, the impact is one that ripples to those we may never meet. Golf is fun, but life is important. Don’t let it pass you by.
