“When I’m in the zone, heeling feels like sitting at home in your chair and watching it on TV. There’s just a calmness to it.”

Real Time

<<

You know how it is. When you’re late somewhere and rushing around, you forget stuff. It might seem like it takes forever to get through the day, or the day might fly by. But there are exactly twenty-four hours in every single day, no matter what. If you stay in Real Time and focus on doing each thing you need to do, you have plenty of time.

In team roping, when guys break the barrier or get into a speed jam, it’s just their mind getting ahead of what their body’s doing. All of a sudden there’s a clash between their mental time and Real Time. Guys talk all the time about how they see things in slow motion when they rope. No, they don’t. They see it in Real Time. Nobody sees life in slow motion. They’ve just trained themselves to see it in Real Time. In other words, they’re not blanking out or getting nervous or letting their adrenaline overtake their mind.

When you’re in the stands watching a run, it goes by fast, but you see it all. If you’re paying attention, you see it in Real Time. When I’m in the zone, that’s what a run looks like to me.
When I’m in the zone, heeling feels like sitting at home in your chair and watching it on TV. There’s just a calmness to it. I mean, once you know how to brush your teeth, you never stick your toothbrush in your ear on accident, do you? You know how to brush your teeth, and you don’t get nervous about it. You do it without thinking. In a way, roping can be that simple.
