(S&D) Safety & Defense – Discover Your PERSONAL Comfort/Chaos Zones

(About the author)

Safety Toolbox (Advanced)

(This is today’s bit of advice from the book Safety Toolbox.)

Following are some wake-up examples on what a comfort zone and a chaos zone is, including a clear indicator of the edges between the two. Take these to the practice table and try them. Whatever shots you find easy, competitors at a similar level find easy. What you find difficult, others at your level also find difficult.

Comfort-chaos zone, example 1

This is the standard straight-in shot. At a diamond away from the object ball, it’s easy. Try each shadow position 10 times before moving back to the next.

Comfort-chaos zone, example 2

Try the closest shooting position first. Do a set (10 tries). Record your success/failure results. Back off a half diamond on the line and repeat.

Comfort-chaos zone, example 3

These are different angles. Verify your comfort zone. You’ll need this to know what an equally skilled opponent can and cannot do.

Comfort-chaos zone, example 4

Even the closest shadow ball (cue ball position) might not make this a comfort zone shot. It is important that you know.

These get harder as you move back. Play with these to know your own abilities.
