Are you shooting yourself in the foot by playing “the short game”?
I don’t know if you’re already a server or thinking of becoming one – but I can’t tell you how many times over the years, I’ve encountered servers who play the short game when it comes to their career.

Successful servers are all alike – but every unsuccessful server is unsuccessful in his or her own way.
