The greatest golfers in the world have a pre-shot routine.

The worst golfers in the world don’t.

A pre-shot routine may include taking a deep breath, visualizing, and just doing it (trusting your shot).

A routine also helps you focus less on what’s going on around you, and more on what’s going on inside you. Think of yourself as being a hurricane—on the outside, things are out of control, but on the inside (the eye of the hurricane), things are calm and in control.

Pre-shot routines also create consistency. And consistency in routines equate to consistency in your game.

This principle applies to school and the business world too. A consistent routine gets you consistent results.

And no routine is still a routine.
