As usual, I don't go #golfing without a #lifelesson jumping at me. Confidence can be a good #driver and at the same time an armed robber of opportunities. It depends on how you deploy it.
Nice #teeshot and not so bad second shot on a #par4. I didn't make #greenregulation for 2, though. I ascended the #green at the third shot. Considering my recent putting #wizardry (lolz) and my bae #ping #putter, I grew too much confidence in sinking the 11-footer at worse, at the second #putt. "If #par eludes me, #bogie must not", I said to myself. The putt broke 9inches right, which means I kissed par good-bye. You'd expect that I'd take 9inch putt serious. No. I stroked the putt with one hand and it wasn't my right hand which I'm most good at. The ball rolled towards the cup, but stopped less than an inch into the cup.
I can tell myself that shebi I'm just playing for #fun, but this is how over confidence robs us in life, because we don't treat simple tasks as though they are the hardest. Simple, easy or #sophisticated - #treat them same way - serious.
