Dr. Patrick Cohn on Escaping Comfort Zones (Video)

I've mentioned Patrick Cohn on this blog before. I have a sports psych book he wrote called Going Low.

Today I found a video he did that briefly covers some mental "tricks" to help you break out of a scoring rut. It's ten years old but the advice is still surprisingly useful.

Cohn defines what a comfort zone is and how it can limit you. Then he gives you some tactics for overcoming those limitations. Although the video says it has three mental strategies, there are really four:
  • Don't set a target score
  • Don't keep track of your score
  • Don't play defense -- stay on the attack
  • Focus on what you want to do, not what you're afraid you might do
The video also says you can get a free report that teaches you six things players do to sabotage their games. I'm not recommending the report; I find most of these things, although they may have useful info, are more often than not just ways to get you on a mailing list. However, the page still exists after ten years and is apparently still being updated, so for those of you who might be interested, here's the link to the report. If you choose to register for the download, you do so at your own risk!

At any rate, the video has some useful info that might help you get out of your own way and maybe break through your own scoring limit. And there's no sign-up form before you can listen!
