The problem (according to Gallway) is that most people don't want to accept how long it takes to gradually get better semi-conciously through slow repetition, so they think that over-deliberating about their performance DURING practice will get a short-cut to achievement, but it won't ... it will make progress slower.. the concious mind is interfering with the long, slow process.
Now let's look at what works in practice. Because it's not that as a general rule of course.
