From Bill Hines Forward to The Parallel Mode Manual
As an athlete myself, I have been “in the zone” on numerous occasions. But like everyone else, I thought the zone was an experience that could not be reproduced through self willalone. Indeed, that playing in the zone only happened when certain psychological and emotional components came together simultaneously.
I knew what I had read about this mystery of the zone, and everything I read said the same thing: you can’t make the zone happen. You can only bring together the key conditions associated with “flow” and in so doing set the stage for the zone to occur.
Everybody seems to know about the zone, but nobody tells you exactly how to do it.
When Scott offered to show me how to play tennis in the zone firsthand, I was intrigued, so I agreed, feeling that playing any sport in the zone was the ultimate goal.
We met at my club and within five minutes, I was not only “in the zone,” I was also playing the best tennis of my life!
“This is it!” I said. “This is what we’ve been looking for!”
Sports vision researchers have known that the visual input system plays an important role in high-level sports performance, but not until Scott came along with his revolutionary approach to playing tennis in the zone did we find out just how important the visual system really is.
