Financial lessons from my anniversary mini-golf game

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary yesterday.

Played some mini-golf, got some drinks, relived memories.

I also done learnt a few things while tap, tap, tapping that neon-colored ball around on fake grass.

One thing I got to thinking about was what it must be like to be a for-real golf pro.

I got a couple “hole in one” shots.

So did my wife.

We celebrated until the next hole where we just took 5 strokes and moved on because we clearly weren’t going to convince the stupid little ball to go in the hole.

So we definitely experienced the thrill of victory and the agony of defeet.

I didn’t kid myself into thinking I was some great putter. We were just out having fun.

I think most people can relate.

Anywho, point is, there’s a huge difference between being a pro and being lucky.

Most people naturally fall into the latter category when it comes to all sorts of activities.

Mini-golf and… of course financial stuffs.

That doesn’t mean you can’t do well for yourself or accumulate a sizable savings.

It just means you have to go about it a bit differently than how a professional would.

Unfortunately, the #fakenews media and financial blogosphere mostly teaches people how to do as the professionals do.

That can work for some, but for most… you need to take an amateur’s approach to get professional results.
