Skill only develops under pressure

We don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.” – Archilochos.

When the moment comes, people go into lizard brain mode. If there’s no muscle memory, or training to fall back on then, their foundation skills are like soft sea sand that crumbles and gives away with the first bit of pressure.

Skill only develops under pressure. Pressure isn’t real in a simulator. Making the shot during a practice round when nothing is at stake is way different to a match day when there are no mulligans and people depend on you.

Practice by doing
