To this day the sound of velcro tearing on a golf glove draws me to attention and puts me in a zone.

Why is that? Well, in a way, that’s what today’s episode is all about.

Today, I’ll share with you six ways to help you get in the zone.

What is “the zone” exactly? Perhaps in 2014 terminology, we could call it a “flow state” or just “focused.”

I’ve always liked the phrase “in the zone” though because it conjures up an image of being in a physical and mental place (the zone) that I can actually go to.

So, how do you get “in the zone?” Listen below to today’s episode to find out the six strategies and techniques I use to get in the zone and really focus.

Few things are sadder than encountering a person who knows exactly what he should do, yet cannot muster enough energy to do it. “He who desires but acts not,” wrote Blake with his accustomed vigor, “Breeds pestilence.” ~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

    Ok, I’m only 7 1/2 minutes into your podcast, but HAD to stop it to say…What, you’re a Vol?? Me, too!! Haha. Plus you’re in Fort Wayne. I never lived there, but have spent 17 years on the north side of Indy. Close enough. (Now live in west MI.) Born and raised in Knoxville though. Ok, now that I’ve been sidetracked, back to your great podcast.:-)

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      I sure am. Rocky Top will always be home sweet home to me.

      We actually meant to move to the Fishers area but ended up here when we found our dream home.

      Where at in Michigan?

      1. Pam Haddix says:

        Awesome! Fishers is now the place to be (though Carmel folks wouldn’t agree). We’ve lived in Carmel and Westfield, so just west of Fishers.

        We’re in the Holland/Grand Rapids area. Technically in Hudsonville right now (west suburb of GR, but my husband is a worship director at a church in Holland, so over there a lot. We lived in Zeeland for 13 years (next to Holland) and want to get back over there. Love being closer to the lakeshore.

        Always fun to find a fellow Vol. AND I picked up a few tips from your podcast that I’m going to implement. Thanks, Matt!

      2. Matt McWilliams says:

        Nice! Near South Haven. That is one of our favorite places.

        We spent a day a few years ago in Holland. Had really bad Chinese food at a place we still joke about today 🙂

        That’s awesome that it’s helping. I hope it continues too.

        Would love a rating & review on iTunes or Stitcher if you are able. Just go to http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/rate and I share why and how.

      3. Pam Haddix says:

        That’s hilarious. Yeh, Holland has a LOT more to offer than bad Chinese. LOL. I love it here in the summer. (Not so much winter – which is 5 months of the year. Got 8″ today. )

        I’d be glad to leave a rating and review. But I think I need to listen to it again first.:-) Thanks!
