Instictual Calculations

A lot of my posts recently have been pretty heavy. So this one is about why it’s important to trust your instincts. Between meltdowns, misunderstandings and other issues like schooling, it’s easy to really distrust your instincts, after all they seem to be what gets you into trouble. So you can learn to fight against them and actually hate your own mind.


Over the past year I have been trying to reverse that process. Yes, ok, they are protective and sometimes read the room wrong, becoming overly protective when it’s not necessary. However, that’s where a lot of the benefits are too. At the bottom of this post I am going to add my YouTube channel link. If you take a look at the gaming videos there you will see what I mean. When I am settled and have that positive connection with my instincts, my brain is capable of multiple calculations, and it does it really quickly. My conscious side is aware of what’s happening but not guiding it.


I can calculate the speed of the ball, angle, position of other cars and pull off some pretty unique shots. Often I’m just waiting for the moment my brain says go now... I do... and I score. Our instinctual side can be a real asset if in the right environment.


For me it basically comes down to this...

settled and my instincts are a tag team, working together and splitting the work load.

Not settled and I’m like someone learning to drive and the instructor has taken over because they feel it’s not safe anymore.


YouTube channel - this just has gaming videos at the moment but I have a lot more of different types of content planned for the future.
