Optimal Performance:

What is Optimal Performance? Leading sports psychologist, Dr. Robert Nideffer, has referred optimal performance as those relatively infrequent times when individuals feel totally immersed in the performance. They are “in the moment” performing at an automatic level, without need for conscious thought or direction. They feel totally in control, totally focused on the task, extremely confident, with a total loss of self-consciousness, and their perception of the passage of time is altered either losing all awareness of time, or feeling as if things are happening in slow motion (Williams & Krane, 2000).
