Decide the Outcome

Personal Development | | Tom Suddes

There was a ton of stuff written last week on Tiger Woods and the Masters. One of my favorite lines was from the Augusta National Chairman, Billy Payne (1996 Atlanta Olympics Fame). Payne says,

“He’s a very, very special person… a man who DECIDES THE OUTCOME and THEN he UNDERTAKES a STRATEGY.
(my caps) The rest of us, we all adopt strategies hoping to get to an outcome. He does it just the other way.”

Nick, Kerry and I call this SFP… which is our shorthand for:


Decide WHAT you want to do. (It’s also way better if you understand the WHY you want to do it.) THEN… decide the HOW.

It works for Tiger. It’ll work for you.
