I’ve spent the day watching the PGA Championship being held at the Atlanta Country Club. I’m waiting for the 3-hole playoff between Americans Justin Duffner and Keegan Bradley. Very dramatic finish leading to a tie after 72 holes.
Here the thing…
On the 15th hole, Keegan Bradley triple-bogeyed after hitting in the water putting him 5 strokes behind Duffner and virtually eliminating him from contention. Bradley proceeded to finish the last 3 holes going birdie – birdie – par, while Duffner finished with 3 bogeys and a par on 18. This puts them in the playoff.
Resiliency is defined as the ability to bounce back from adversity. Bradley is resiliency defined in real-time. Bouncing back from a gut-wrenching triple-bogey with a -2 finish puts aside all the bad that just happened and proves that you should never give up.
How about you? How about your business? Do both you and your business or career show the same resiliency that Keegan Bradley just showed on the biggest stage in his vocation.
