One more quick thing about Tiger Woods.
In the pages and pages written about him this week, the biggest moral cited was this: “Don’t quit.”
Quitting defines a lot of who you are.
Did you quit?
When did you quit?
Did you quit to soon?
Did you quit too late?
Did you not quit something you should have?
Did quitting become a habit?
Did quitting cause regret and make you bitter?
What would have happened if you hadn’t quit?
You get my point. Tiger Woods success this weekend could cause you to consider your quitting behavior. When that impulse to quit hits you, do you press on? Give it another try? Stay with it a little longer? Talk yourself into hanging in?
I’m thinking one grit difference between Tiger Woods and the rest of us is that his quitting point comes later than ours.
