Athletes should simplify their performance to avoid getting in their own way. Simplifying your performance will allow you to play freely without over thinking your performance. The first step towards simplifying your performance is having trust in your practice and preparation.
The purpose of practice is to learn the skills and strategies to perform in competition. In competition, you want to let yourself play. Let go of the “how tos” (your technique or mechanics) and allow yourself to let it happen. Over analyzing only makes matters worse, because you fill your mind with more thoughts than you can process at one time.
