Presented @ Huddle Dublin | September 2016
We have all experienced it – the disappointment and confusion that emerges after putting everything we have into studying, practicing and preparing only to experience utter failure when the big moment comes. We reflect, “how could I have been so successful in practice, but perform so poorly when it mattered most.” This disconnect is common, almost ubiquitous, and these situations are often associated with ‘choking under pressure’, ‘test taking anxiety’, ‘stage fright’, or something similar. Whilst dealing with pressure is part of the equation, it is not the whole story. This presentation seeks to demystify a part of this conundrum and provide insights that should help our practice stick when it counts.
