When I was looking to improve my golf game (I could hack my way around the course but it was ugly) my coach asked me what my end goal was. Did I want him to provide a Band-Aid for my game or did I really want to learn how to play golf. I asked him what he meant by that.
He told me that he could give me a few tips, (band aids) that would make me feel better today but I would never really get better long term. I would return over and over for another Band-Aid.
He then said that if I wanted to learn how to play, it would take time and effort. There were no short cuts for success. I told him that since my current game stunk I saw no reason to put a Band-Aid on it so let’s learn to play.
