As you set out for a round of golf are you simply trying to beat your opponent or shoot as low a score as possible? If so, you're like most of us but if you do not do well, do you know why, and therefore how you might improve?
So next time you play, why not set specific targets related to your problem areas. For example, of all the putting faults that can creep into one's game, leaving the ball short of the hole is probably the most common. Therefore, next time out, why not make a pledge on the first tee that you will ensure that every putt at least reaches the hole and, if you don't sink it, goes past.
You probably won't succeed but there's a very good chance that, by being bolder, you'll make a few more putts than usual.
