We love this article about Steph Curry and the value of sensory and experience training. Curry is not only training his vision, but engraining a set of patterns that he’ll be able to recognize in game situations.
What we don’t love about the article is that it sounds so difficult. It’s not. You can train the many facets of your vision. You can learn to recognize patterns in activity and learn to move and act on them instinctively.
For that reason, we also love Daniel Coyle’s book “The Little Book of Talent” . which separates skills into hard and soft, and the kind of practice to optimally train each.
The Little Book of Talent is an easy-to-use handbook of scientifically proven, field-tested methods to improve skills—your skills, your kids’ skills, your organization’s skills—in sports, music, art, math, and business. The product of five years of reporting from the world’s greatest talent hotbeds and interviews with successful master coaches, it distills the daunting complexity of skill development into 52 clear, concise directives. Whether you’re age 10 or 100, whether you’re on the sports field or the stage, in the classroom or the corner office, this is an essential guide for anyone who ever asked, “How do I get better?”
And while both these resources will give you a good idea of what’s posisble and some ideas on to do it, they are far from a complete solution for you. The Sensory Training, Experience Training and Deep Practice methodology of NeuralTraining can make this accessible and practical for you.
