Getting Off Your Own Back

“Professional golf is the only sport where, if you win 20% of the time, you’re the best.” – Jack Nicklaus

100% is unattainable.

80% is unimaginable.

60% will leave us frustrated even if we succeed.

40% still means failing 6 out of 10 times.

20% means almost one in four times what we do is come through.

100% is fine for effort but reaching your goals one out of four times is reasonable and a reminder that we needlessly make ourselves miserable by setting unrealistic expectations.
