Too much thinking ...

A good post by Jonah Lehrer, Free Throws, on how too much thinking while playing can in fact worsen your performance. This explains why my slap shots suck - I am thinking too much. It is the same pattern over and over again. Someone tells me the finer points of how to hit it correctly, I replay what they tell me in my mind during the shot and I get off a shot that is weak and off target. From now on, no more thinking ... just line up and whack at the puck.
