There is merit to this madcap method. On occasion, disrupt your normal pattern in order to become more aware. For instance, if you always swing without conscious thought, take several swings and use your mind to analyze each component of your swing. If you always warm up with the same bat, on occasion switch to a lighter bat or a heavier bat. If you always stride, on occasion swing without striding, and so on. You can apply this to every facet of your game.
Keep your mind and your body guessing, adapting, and responding to ever-increasing demands. Don’t get stuck in a rut of sameness – use the theory of opposite and attain greatness.
