On the Quiet Eye


“We could at once perceive by our companion’s manner of proceeding the true cause of our own failure the preceding day. He was all Quietness. We had been all bustle.”

From an 1852 letter by explorer Thomas McGrath


More from the Force Science Research Center on Quiet Eye studies and the relationship to athletic – and tactical – performance.

A Quiet Eye is not just something we “have,” it’s something we cultivate, through meaningful training and successful applications.

Obviously not talking about life or death situations typically but definitely a great tool. especially when physically exhausted or unable to be in a training environment.
