"I view my life in a way … I’ll explain it to you, OK?" he told his small audience in Florida. "The greatest thing about tomorrow is, I will be better than I am today. And that’s how I look at my life. I will be better as a golfer, I will be better as a person, I will be better as a father, I will be a better husband, I will be better as a friend. That’s the beauty of tomorrow. There is no such thing as a setback. The lessons I learn today I will apply tomorrow, and I will be better."
That’s from this article on ESPN.com about Tiger. (Hat tip Kevin Cherrick.)
Speaking of sports superstars, this is an interesting article from an old Fortune about Lebron James’ brand. He is managing it like a business strategist would. He and his inner circle held a retreat with sessions with titles such as "China 101: Pop Culture, Media, and Sports," "Brand Globalization," and "LeBron Brand in China."

While traveling in Korea recently, I was told about the high cost of playing golf there. A round of 18 holes near Seoul will be about US 200. This is a lot of money for the average Korean. One of my coworkers there has been playing golf for 2 or 3 years, and had only been on a golf course 7 or 8 times. Driving ranges are reasonably affordable. In fact my hotel even had one (well, more like 1/ 8 of one) on a rooftop with a large net.
