Throughout a game, you encounter problems.
Some small, like getting ready for each inning or putting your batting gloves and helmet on.
Some big, like getting out of a bases loaded jam.
Whenever you’re faced with problems, your brain starts to seek solutions.
As you come across solutions to the solve reoccurring problems on the field, you start to automate those. When that happens, your habits become automatic solutions for reoccurring problems.
What you may realize is that your solution (habit) isn’t an optimal one.
Once you become aware of these sub-optimal habits, then it becomes your responsibility to design them differently in order to improve as a player.
Action Over Motion: As in life, our habits on the field are those behaviors that have been repeated enough to become automatic. Do an inventory of your on-the-field habits to identify any habits that may need to be re-shaped.
