For the past several days, I’ve been awakening more parts of my mental muscles. I say “more parts” because these muscles don’t do something totally new — instead, they do what I already do a little better, a little smoother, and a little cleaner.
Today, I’m updating my mental posture to make use of the new muscles. The actual technique I use is faster than the one in that post — I use my mental muscles to drive the posture changes, rather than doing it through practice — but the result is the same.
I’ll use these new mental muscles for 3-12 months, until they’re fully integrated into what I do, then probably awaken more. It’s the fastest way I’ve found to improve.
My point is: You won’t ever outgrow these fundamental techniques. Awakening mental muscles. Updating mental posture. I’d put sensory connections in there, too. They’re always a part of what I do, and 10+ years after learning my core techniques, I’m still improving at them. Don’t worry if it takes a while to learn the techniques well — you’ll get plenty of use out of them.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
