Description

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book.
Sample Book Insights:
#1 The empty cup approach means receiving everything that is taught in an open way, withholding judgment about it until you’ve had a chance to try it out. Try your best to understand what is being communicated, then give it a fair chance to work.
#2 The Buddhist teachings on the learning process use the metaphor of the cup to symbolize four types of students. The first cup is upside down, representing a student who is supposedly there to learn, but pays no attention. The second cup is right side up, but has a hole in the bottom. The third cup is right side up and doesn’t have a hole in it, but the inside is covered with dirt. The fourth cup represents the ideal way to be a student.
#3 The Nine Dots Exercise involves drawing four straight lines that connect all nine dots without lifting your pencil from the paper. To solve the puzzle, your lines must go beyond the right edge of the box and then beyond the bottom of the box.
#4 Par is an example of an illusory box that mid- to high-handicap golfers create for themselves. They should instead think outside of it. When measuring your score against the same number in widely different conditions, you will feel much more at ease approaching a difficult hole from this new perspective.

#1

The empty cup approach means receiving everything that is taught in an open way, withholding judgment about it until you’ve had a chance to try it out. Try your best to understand what is being communicated, then give it a fair chance to work.

#2

The Buddhist teachings on the learning process use the metaphor of the cup to symbolize four types of students. The first cup is upside down, representing a student who is supposedly there to learn, but pays no attention. The second cup is right side up, but has a hole in the bottom. The third cup is right side up and doesn’t have a hole in it, but the inside is covered with dirt. The fourth cup represents the ideal way to be a student.

#3

The Nine Dots Exercise involves drawing four straight lines that connect all nine dots without lifting your pencil from the paper. To solve the puzzle, your lines must go beyond the right edge of the box and then beyond the bottom of the box.

#4

Par is an example of an illusory box that mid- to high-handicap golfers create for themselves. They should instead think outside of it. When measuring your score against the same number in widely different conditions, you will feel much more at ease approaching a difficult hole from this new perspective.

#5

When things aren’t the way we want them to be, we often complain. But instead of complaining, golfers should learn to adapt to whatever they encounter.

#6

The more open your mind is, the bigger it is. The more consumed by worry and petty concerns, the smaller it is. Tunnel vision might be very focused, but if you miss a critical variable in your planning, the shot will be a disaster.

#7

When you focus tightly on the hole, your mind is smaller and your world is more constricted. The first time you did the exercise, you probably slowed down as you thought you were getting near the hole. If the hole were at the edge of the world, you would be careful not to go beyond it and fall off.

#8

Our thoughts are not our mind. We can observe our thoughts and the feelings that precede and follow them to experience a gap in the sequence of impulse-to-thought-to-action, and we can choose how to respond rather than automatically react.

#9

Working with your thoughts is a fundamental part of Buddhism. You simply allow them to come and go, without inviting them to stay or trying to get rid of them. When you identify with your thoughts instead of the contents, you become susceptible to their power.

#10

A richness mentality is different from a poverty mentality. With a richness mentality, we recognize our basic goodness as a person, and that there is nothing fundamentally wrong with us. We understand that our golf swing is the gold statue of our golf game, and that we can change by not fixing it.

#11

There are three types of confidence. False confidence is just talking big, and it doesn’t help at all. Conditional confidence is based on recent results. Unconditional confidence comes from connecting with your basic goodness.
