THE COMPUTER; TRUSTING SELF TWO
Borrowing from Timothy Gallwey, “Trust self two; it is an incredible computer.” Turning over control to the sub-conscious mind can be a challenge for many. It is instinctive for others. As I reflect on the concept ‘paralysis by analysis’, it may be slightly overstated. Playing a musical instrument or striking a golf ball with total conscious control of the myriad of fine motor muscle movements may be more like working a complicated math problem with a pencil and paper. It’s not that it can’t be done; it’s just too slow to be competitive. Turning over control to self two is like using a high powered computer. To continue the analogy, the computer must have the software and the data to make the calculations. The software can be likened to muscle tone. The software can be likened to muscle memory. Loading the software is done in the practice room or on the driving range. Programming the computer can be done in a library or while watching a golf tournament.
