Three Things Worth Sharing
Fix your ball marks - I hope you’ve been getting out on the golf course often with the great summer weather we’ve been having of late. Speaking of golf, this is a good time to remember to fix pitch marks on the green – and to do it the right way (I’m looking at you, Jason)!
This visual shows how the top of the fixing tool should be used to push the grass in toward the mark, and not as a lever to lift the grass underneath the mark (which tears out the roots). Hopefully you will be fixing your ball mark (plus one other mark!) on every hole…which will mean you are on every green in regulation!
Truly celebrate our independence - Every year around this time when I pull out the copy of the Declaration of Independence
I keep in a drawer in my office, invariably my focus gets drawn to the last line:
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.’
I am struck by the commitment the signers made by putting their names on this document - knowing that a defeat of the revolution meant certain imprisonment, impoverishment and possibly even death. Which begets a great question to reflect on between picnics and fireworks this Independence Day weekend: What are the principles in my life – or in yours – for which would we risk literally everything?
