Lessons from Scotland

Golf teaches you very quickly that the competition is against yourself, not against others. You are your own worst enemy, be it the ego that picks a driver when an iron would do, or the ability to deal with anxiety making a clutch putt.

Routine: The Secret Sauce of Success

While concentrated and focussed practice is a key to success, realising potential is only possible by the use of routine: a sequence of actions regularly followed. Routine is often the hard-working contributor to success that is overlooked.

The Quantified-Self Movement

Quantification of self is certainly not for everybody. I know people that are uncomfortable with the idea. However, for both maximising productivity as well as health, I think there is little downside. This is something that has become a core part of my coaching approach.
