BITG 006: Calibrating the Mind – Building Performance Structure

December 21, 2012

In the world of neuroscience and cognitive behaviour there are many different ways of measuring the output capacity of our memory, each with their own take on this and unique ideas about what is and isn’t accurate.

One thing people who study these behavioural disciplines all agree on is there’s more information coming into our brains than ever before.

This increase in incoming information has a massive impact on how we effectively and efficiently process that and how we access that and that stored information when we need to recall it.

We never switch off.

You never know when that golden nugget of information is going to come in, the one piece of information that is going to make a massive difference to your performance or your career.

You never know who’s going to tell you, who’s going to show you, what you’re going to stumble across, so you there is a feeling of being ‘switched on’ all the time, to be processing with the same capacity every waking second of the day.

If we don’t have that efficient template to do that we run the risk of losing or missing that one piece of information that could really make a huge difference to us.

In today’s episode we discuss the mechanism that will allow us to:

  • better process all this incoming information
  • know how to look for it
  • where to get the information
  • how the relevant information should be categorised
  • how to emotionally tank in a positive structured way, rather than a reactionary way, driven by negative attention

By learning these important processes allow us to calibrate and adjust, self-manage and assess progress and decision making, and enables the athlete, coach and crew to recognise that wobble long before we have the crash.
