TROUBLE-SHOOTING YOUR PERFORMANCE - Tuesday, April 19th, 2016 9:29 pm

Win, lose or draw, the best thing you can do from your previous performance, is learn from it. But do you have a way to trouble-shoot your performance - and is it effective? If you back up from the result, which is the by-product of what you did, the next logical step, is to look at technique (your skill and knowledge in action). While this is important, it may never actually get to the root of the problem. If we go deeper into our line of enquiry, we’ll see there may be a few more forces at play.

Have you ever felt fully conscious, where everything seems to happen in slow motion? Have you ever noticed what happens when your will is strong and your mind is clear, when you feel free… Not just the result, but even your enjoyment of it.

Have you ever experienced anxiety, fear or nerves in a performance? Have you noticed what happens to the feeling of your body and subsequently, the technical application of your skill and finally, the result? Have you ever been asked, “What were you thinking?” and not be able to answer because you don’t even understand how you could make such a bad decision? It doesn’t make sense that a great performer can all of a sudden become a bad one. This is the stress-effect… and it does happen in that order. This is why we need a holistic way to understand the cause that happens before the effect.

If there is a breakdown in performance, we need to understand where the breakdown was… and often, it starts at the source… our mind. For whatever reason, there seems to be a discomfort in people to leave the comfortable realm of quantifiability and look at emotion, but If we are going to get to the bottom of the problem, we have to open ourselves to the bottom, not just skim across the surface. Otherwise, we are often trying to solve a breakdown in performance that only broke down because of the fear, stress or lack of awareness that preceded it. Here is a basic and systematic way to trouble-shoot an error, or even a missing in your performance, starting at the bottom.  

  1. Is it psychological? I.e., did fear or doubt get in they way?
  2. Is it physical? I.e., a lack of fitness
  3. Is it tactical? I.e., you didn’t do your homework?
  4. Is it technical? I.e., you lack the skill or knowledge to perform a particular task?

Greatness was never achieved without a willingness to look deeply within yourself - and face the very elements that are holding you back. Once this is understood, you will need a way to fix the error or missing, which ends up being a process of either deletion or refinement, so you can perform without that particular limitation. If the limitation is in your mind, a daily discipline like Kelee Meditation can help. Kelee Meditation has been medically proven to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. It is a true cleansing technique that promotes stability, clarity and the dissolution of compartmentalised fear. When the mind feels pure, so too will your performance and your ability to trouble shoot it. The result, a stronger performance from the inside out.
