How to Overcome Analysis Paralysis

As a coach and student the mind fascinates me as to how it can help and at the same time hinder learning! So many students that I work with suffer from Paralysis By Analysis. By that I mean they overthink everything hoping to improve. When you’re thinking too much about a move, the Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Muscles get bogged down and don't work smoothly. You can’t think your way through a paddle stroke, ski turn, or kettlebell lift!

Here are my tips to overcome this problem.

  1. Breathe though all execution phases of the moves and keep the mind clear other than where you’re trying to go.
  2. Try to feel every part of your body with flow and rhythm of the move you’re trying to execute.
  3. Start slowly and focus on feeling smooth.
  4. Embrace new feelings and remember the old habits feel normal!
  5. Focus on what feels new to make the changes if needed.
  6. Give yourself a break and be kind and easy on yourself to seek the new improvements you’re looking for.
  7. As soon as your mind starts creeping back with overthinking, breathe it away. This may all seem like a different approach, but this is what the top professionals of the world do! It’s called being in the ZONE!
