Podcast: Sometimes it takes a 3XL
Let me tell you another true story.
A few years ago, I was invited by a friend of mine to play a round of golf at a country club golf course in the suburbs of Chicago.
We were to play with my friend’s brother and his boss, both doctors in private practice.
I arrived at the country club with a nice shirt that did not have a collar. My friend was dressed the same way.
This country club has its own rules and etiquette for playing golf.
When we arrived at the first tee, the starter indicated that the rules of the country club were very clear and no one could play golf in a shirt that did not have a collar.
Since my friend and I both lived 45 minutes from the course, there was no way we could drive home to change.
We were told our only alternative was to buy a shirt from the pro shop if we wanted to play.
Every shirt in the pro shop was priced at least $90, making the required purchase a very expensive one.
My friend and I decided to both purchase shirts with size 3XL (3 extra large).
Let me say, we both looked ridiculous. The shirt can down past my knees and I could have fit three of me inside the shirt.
As funny as it turned out, this is one unexpected situation for which I was not prepared.
How do you prepare for unexpected situations and events in your own life?
Always remember to PACK before you do anything.
Always remembering to PACK before you do anything can help make a positive impact in your own life.
