Your Skills Don’t Need You to Try Harder

Rarely is the problem that you’re not trying hard enough. Surely, that barbell you’re trying to lift is getting your best “try.” You see skill isn’t about trying hard. That’s easy. Skill takes attention. You’ve got to learn something to acquire skill.

Furthermore, when failure is an issue in the gym it’s rarely because there isn’t enough “try” happening. The problem is usually proficiency. So, when you’re having troubles the answers are rarely found in grunts, big deep breaths, and stress.

Stop. Think. Slow down. Learning happens with your best attention to detail.
