The Tasting Technique – a Summary
The brain learns movement in a systematic way by building a foundation on which to add new skills. It’s called muscle memory. By repeating and practicing a motion, you turn a conscious act, such as moving your fingers across a keyboard, swinging a golf club, or even swirling the wine in your glass before tasting, into a reflex. A centipede is asked, “How can you walk with all those legs?” The centipede thinks about it and suddenly, it can’t walk any more. The moral? Pondering impedes where practicing succeeds.
