I often hear from my hockey friends that they play for much longer when the puck is not in the air, or when they are not constantly checking for the same thing. I don’t know how that makes sense, but I guess it does, because they are making decisions based on instinct and not weighing things.
When we think about it, it seems that it takes a lot longer to decide if a hockey player is going to shoot the puck or not. I don’t think that needs to be a part of this post since I don’t think most hockey players can remember the last time they had a puck in the air. But it is worth noting that our brains do the opposite of this.
We should also note that there is a certain amount of instinct that we have to do things like decide if a hockey player is going to shoot the puck, or if he is going to take a penalty. Although I think that would be the better way to describe it.
So a hockey player has to decide if he is going to shoot the puck, or not. The brain has to decide whether or not the puck is going to be shot. The brain is not the one deciding if the puck is going to be shot or not. This is what we referred to as “the subconscious.
The brain is not the one deciding if a puck will be shot. This is what we referred to as the subconscious. I think the subconscious is pretty good when it comes to decisions like this. So a goalie deciding if he is going to shoot the puck, and a player deciding if he is going to take a penalty, that’s great. The subconscious can certainly make decisions like this, but sometimes it is the conscious mind that makes a decision that is much more important.
I was thinking of this when I was reading about the new hockey game. I don’t think it is quite the same, but I don’t think it is that different. Sure, the goalie thinks he is going to shoot the puck. There is no decision to make.
It is the conscious mind that makes the decision. In hockey, it’s either by the goalie shooting the puck or the player on the penalty box. In real life it is by the conscious mind. Our brains are much more complex than this. We think, feel, make decisions, and act, all the time. We are constantly making decisions from the back of our minds, so it is a lot harder to make the conscious decision than we think it is.
A major reason we skate so fast is that our brains are much more complex than this. The best way to tell if someone is really really fast is to ask them how fast they think they’re going. If they say they’re going at least twice as fast as they actually are, you know their brain is way beyond this. It is far more than this.
So, what? We all think we are going twice as fast as we really are. We all think we are going three times as fast as we really are. We all think we are going four times as fast as we really are. And so on. We just all think this.
This is how you should test your skating. You should test it by asking people if they think the way you think you skate is true. If they don’t think it is true, your brain is way beyond this.
