  1. Many here will remember this article: One of those five "S" words — in fact, perhaps the most important word — is "Success." I define it in the article as: Success here, you'll note, does not mean making perfect swings each time, it means learning a little each time. Let's make up an example of someone who under-turns with their torso and over-bends their trail elbow. If we defined "success" as "perfect," this golfer would almost never achieve success. But if the golfer exaggerates a bit too much one time — maybe they turn so much they can't see the ball, or their elbow doesn't even bend 45° or something — and doesn't exaggerate quite enough another time, they have tremendous potential to learn. Particularly if they have real-time or near-real-time feedback about the extent to which either thing happened. At the risk of muddying the message, the whole point of this topic is to state this: "Success" is not about perfect, it's about operating at the edge of your ability so that you can learn the quickest. You'll exaggerate sometimes, under-do it other times. Go a little too fast or too far one time, a little too short or too slow another time. It may sound contradictory, but you won't learn as quickly if every swing was somehow perfect as you do when every swing is close to perfect, but with noticeable differences.
