Why You Need This: In this mini podcast, you'll learn how difficulty forces improvement.
This is the third mini podcast that reviews the topic of deliberate practice.
Previously, I discussed...
- Specific goals, and
- How to quantitatively measure your goals.
Next, you'll learn how to take it up a notch and focus on increasing the difficulty of your practice.
Most players struggle with this...
They typically practice the same things over and over.
That's better than not practicing, but you should increase the difficulty to take your game up a few notches.
For example, let's say you're practicing getting a fuller shoulder turn on your forehands.
Instead of leisurely hitting this shot 100 times, start off practicing the correct motions really slowly in your living room.
Then practice the same shot with a ball machine.
Next, increase the speed on the ball machine and even vary up the direction of the balls.
Finally, grab a buddy to feed you shots at full speed.
The key is to gradually increase the difficulty of your practice.
This will pay off way better than just beating a few hundred balls against a wall.
