about 30 seconds before @swoodland53 and myself went live on espn for the games for the first time,he turned to me all excited and said, “millions of people are going to be watching us!”. i turned to him in shock and said, “dude! right before we go on the air?!” hahaha! the fact was that is was super exciting what we were about to do. but ....... 1 million things could go wrong! right??
so how are you supposed to perform when the odds are seemingly against you? a little trick i have learned is to box your head in. this means you build a wall around your brain and your thoughts so the only thing you can concentrate on is the single task at hand. it may be the next rep, the math problem you are working on, the current question that you’re being asked in the interview, or giving your statement about the upcoming events.... even though millions will be watching! this action will reduce fear and anxiety because you take out many of the variables and unknowns of the task at hand. the less stress and unwarranted anxiety you have, the better you will be able to perform!
Its easy to learn a habit if you repeat it a few times!
i remember doing a class with my all time favorite pastry chef - jean michel raynaud where he mentioned this as a passing by comment and it stayed with me and over time i've seen the benefits of being organized.
this is how i start my ganache days - prep my work bench and my prep table.
how do you organize your tasks? #organised#taskathand#deliciousinthemaking#sugarpot4me
For the day(s) when your list is a mile long and your house is a disaster...focus on the task at hand...frank, wild orange and peppermint. neroli over my heart for peace and less anxiety over things i cannot control. ✌🏼💫🖤
