Who? Tiger Woods.
He’s being called the best who ever played the game. At the age of 32 he’s earning $100 million a year and has won seven consecutive tournaments.
I don’t golf, but I learn from Tiger. That’s because truth is transferable. What makes for mastery and remarkable performance is applicable in any arena. The principles don’t change, just the application of them.
I quoted Hillary Clinton recently and surprisingly I’m now quoting what Donald Trump said recently about Tiger: “He is mentally tougher than perhaps anyone else in the sport. He wants more. We see greatness; Tiger sees another level.”
In my next book, The Encore Effect: How to Give a Remarkable Performance in Anything You Do, I talk about the 2LU strategy: aiming not for the incremental next level but going bigger by aiming two levels up. It stretches you more and draws upon more resources.
I’m not surprised that Tiger sees more than simple greatness. He’s aiming levels higher than most.
Couple that with the willingness to work harder and smarter than most and the results are remarkable.
