The Timbo Letter #2
I see that you’ve been helping others around the place. This is important and something that I encourage. It’s not something that is widely known but if you really want to learn something to the master level then the best way is to teach and help others.
It might seem a bit airy fairy but I encourage you to keep going with it. By explaining, teaching and thinking of others forces your brain to go deep. You’ve got to think outside the square, you’ve got to experiment and most importantly you get to make mistakes.
All this helps you learn and improve further. Making mistakes might seem like the wrong thing to do – but it actually fast tracks your progress. There’s nothing like working out what doesn’t work and then finding an alternative. The modern world is full of people that are stuck – too scared to move in any direction, fearful they might do something wrong.
So make mistakes and move on quickly. You’ll leapfrog all those statues who think mistakes are bad.
Automatic golf might be the single best discovery I’ve made with my golf game. But learning to share it with others has allowed me to apply it to my game and actually experience the magic of remarkable golf. It’s my little golfing secret that far too few people will ever experience.
If you ever feel you’re stuck and not moving forward, spend a few minutes with someone else. Help them with their chipping, talk to them about automatic golf, demonstrate your routine or write down your thoughts and share it with a golfing buddy. It will unlock the shackles and have you back on track.
Keep up the good work. There’s more to come.
