Meetings are like golf

One of my housemates at Uni was, and still is, an amazing golfer. Actually, two of my old housemates are amazing golfers but I forget about one because he abandoned us after less than a week to move in with his girlfriend. Who lived with my (then) girlfriend. But I digress.

Whenever we played golf, he would patiently watch me hack my way around the course and, whenever I was in the rough around the green, offered me this advice.

“Your worst putt [from the fringe] will be better than your best chip, so put down your pitching wedge and pick up your putter.”

So it’s worth remembering that your weakest note-taking will be better than your strongest, deepest, memory.

So make sure you put down your ego, which tells you you can remember everything and pick up your pen.

  1. I suppose when you put it that way, even the smartest guys in class would have trouble competing with those who are most prepared for the exam. Growing up , people have given me a lot of advice and a lot of them seem to agree that hard work can trump over inborn talent anytime.
