Take care of the people you leave behind

Odds are if you're taking off for a few days of golf you're leaving someone else in a lurch. Your wife alone with the kids. Your partner at work now covering for two. To show them your appreciation, and most importantly, to alleviate your own guilt, think of something nice that will make your re-entry back to the real world as smooth as possible. Arrange for a sitter so your wife can get out when you're gone. Or send her flowers. Bring your partner back a shirt. This golf trip may be all about you, but you'll enjoy it more if you get others to feel good about it, too.
