Application of PCT.

This is from Phil Runkel on 8 August 95, to Rick M and others.
        Some kinds of action--or more accurately, some ways to choose
goals for action--seem to me suitable illustrations of how one might have
PCT in mind when doing so even though the person who demonstrated the
choice to me knew nothing about PCT. That person can nevertheless give
us an idea of a way to let PCT guide us.
        Some years ago, someone wrote a book called "Inner Tennis." The
author advised readers not to think about the way of swinging the arm,
placing one's feet, hitting the ball with the center of the racket, or
any such thing, but instead to pay persistent attention to the spot where
you want the ball to go--the target on the other side of the net where
you want to see the ball appear. I don't play tennis, but I tried the
corresponding thing on the piano when I wanted to skip from one note to
another that was too far away for me to reach without moving my whole
hand. Instead of thinking about the positions of my fingers, how I moved
my forearm, and the like, I just imagined the key I wanted my thumb to
hit (I did not look at it). Within three or four tries, I was hitting
the right notes every time.
