I recently work out with a man who finally commented that to get better he was going to have to believe that the technique works and that he can do it. I just laughed and smiled my agreement.
Having the correct job order is so important in our training. It's like target fixation in motorcycle riding (or shooting for that matter). We tend to head directly into what we're looking at or thinking about, so to avoid unwanted behaviors, we need to focus on the behaviors we want instead of the behaviors we want to eliminate.
