Some people say golf is essential for business and nothing ever beats spending 4+ hours on green together.
I think that’s a BS – I would choose a 1 hour breakfast meeting over hearty food, delicious coffee, and quality conversations any day.
What matters is a genuine desire to have a meaningful conversation with someone. What are they up to these days? What takes up their mental space? How can I help them? These are actually all the topics that are super awkward to bring up in the golf cart.
And for the record, I’m not saying this because I suck at golf 🙂
