I've learned a lot about life from golf and also a lot about golf from life. Here's an example:
When you putt the line instead of the cup, your chances of hitting the mark are increased. When you putt for the cup, you lose sight of the line and increase your chances of missing the break of the green all together.
If you're putting for the cup in life and leadership, you miss the path and the lessons that can be learned on the path. You may even forget the line, push people out of the way, and putt through the break in order to reach the goal. When I look back at my life, I realize that most of the time the process has had much greater value than the goals.
btw...If you want to buy me a putter, I'll take a Right-Handed Nike Unitized Retro Blade. They're discontinued and hard to find.

The motocross high jump ramp will get you a lot of attention because it's relatively new, boost you very high very quickly, but doesn't get you very far.
The distance ramp will take longer to get air born, require more gas, not appeal to some because it's been done before, but will launch you much further.
I'm not going to be motivated by using the most hip methods of whatever to boost me quickly to the top only to come back down and realize I haven't gain much ground. What about you?
