Looking around the surroundings. Thought this article might prove helpful.
Thinking too much about what you are doing, because you are worried about losing the lead or worrying about failing in general, can lead to "paralysis by analysis." In a nutshell, paralysis by analysis occurs when people try to control every aspect of what they are doing in an attempt to ensure success. Unfortunately, this increased control can backfire, disrupting what was once a fluid, flawless performance.
Meditation and practice can help
Practice helps people navigate through these tosses on life's ocean. But, more importantly, practicing under stress - even a moderate amount - helps a person feel comfortable when they find themselves standing in the line of fire, Beilock said. The experience of having dealt with stress makes those situations seem like old hat. The goal is to close the gap between practice and performance.
