Going to the Fourth Level of Playing Development

"Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot
change their minds cannot change anything."
-- George Bernard Shaw


What is The FOURTH Level?

Where is The FOURTH Level?

How does one get there?

The major research on learning shows that there are four levels of learning and development, no matter what task is involved. Most educational or training programs only go to the third level, and that includes golf school programs. The Third level is characterized by focusing on skill development. The Fourth Level contains the essential measure for transforming skills into habits.

If you haven't been exposed to that kind of experience, follow the path that begins here. You may be surprised. You will discover that there are powerful reasons that hinder reaching the FOURTH level. Among those reasons, and perhaps chief among them ias the notion that enough "hard work" and "repitition" will do the job. You cannot do it without those two, but that's not all of it.

Among other things, you will also discover that there are only two ways to get to the Fourth Level of development and playing ability, and only one of them is optional.

"There is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than the creation of a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by new ones.".....Machiavelli
