I’m more of a teacher than a technician. However, I can do both. As a teacher, I create the system that allows technicians to facilitate drills that all my students need to develop.
When something is systematic is has three parts:
- All the stuff.
- All the stuff sequenced.
- All of the stuff being sequenced and simple to execute.
There are seven parts to the swing. As we know, it takes 3,000 reps to convert a habit to a skill. That’s 21,000 reps.
- Stance/Load x 3,000 reps
- Timing x 3,000
- Tempo x 3,000
- Tracking x 3,000
- Approach x 3,000
- Contact x 3,000
- Extension/Finish x 3,000
The Tennis Ball Drill is one of drills that enables you to focus on all seven parts with each rep. I challenge you to get 3,000 reps within the next 30 days.
When you think about the difference between a teacher and a technician, think about the relationship between a doctor and a nurse. Both are important and need each other in order to be successful.
I want to learn from you. What’s the difference between a teacher and technician?
Remember: Intelligence tops being smart.
