Sports Performance: Visualization Related TED Talk

Discuss the following questions as a class:

  • Explain Kenn Dickinson’s “time travel” analogy
  • Jordan Spieth says “make it happen”. What’s a mantra you might use for your sport?
  • Why is confidence important? Is there such a thing as too much confidence? Not enough?
  • What are some sources of feedback?
  • Kenn Robinson gives the example of repetition — with free throws –and notes the need to then stretch our ability. Can you give other examples? Why is this important?
  • In what ways can we apply visualization in life beyond sport?
