Skills pay the bills. I know you have heard this phrase countless times, but do you really know what it means? The reason why Major League hitters get paid so much money is because they can skillfully do what fans can’t. Fans like me are empowered by watching skilled people perform.
Skills are things that we do repeatedly without thought while under stress. It takes 3,000 reps per part of the swing to develop a skill. Diamond Directors clients know that there are seven parts of the swing. That’s 21,000 reps.
Study the illustration below to see what skills elite hitters must have in order to expect to have a .400 batting average.
Timing is a big time skill to develop. Check out this video to learn more about timing, why you need it, how to get it and keep it as a skill.
February through April is the best time to develop skills so you better get going because skills pay the bills.
Remember: Intelligence tops being smart.
