Become a master of your field. While everyone else is relaxing, you’re practicing and perfecting. Learn the left-brained rules in and out so your right brain can have limitless freedom to break the rules and create. Remember, Practice Makes Man Perfect.
When you have prepared to face any kind of situation, your mind can react very well even unconsciously. With enhanced consciousness, time will slow down for you. You’ll see things in several more frames than others. While they’re trying to react to the situation, you’ll be able to manipulate and tweak the situation to your liking. Always be prepared so your instincts will guide you to react as prepared.
