For many years, I have had an interest in cognitive science and sports science. More specifically, how do we learn to perform all of the individual motor skills necessary to compete in any type of sports? Why do some athletes outperform others? Why do athletes make "mental errors" or "poor decisions" during a game or competition?
Finding answers to these questions is the fun part for me and I'm happy to share what I learn with you.
Also, for even more fun, I write and edit articles for several sports performance and athlete development websites and companies. If you need help with a blog, social media growth or website content, just let me know.
For any sports scientists or authors out there, if you have an article or book that you would like to get in front of our readers, just drop me a message. I'd be happy to help connect you with the 80% Mental crowd!
Oh, why the name you ask? As Yogi Berra clearly articulated, "Baseball is 80% mental, and the other half is physical." Close enough for us.
