Habitual Hats is an extraordinary tool for improving performance, not only for use in role playing and modelling, but also for giving a structure leading to priorities, answers and a practical strategy for accelerating progress in all types of situations.

Many people have identified the need to give children both roots and dreams. I believe this applies to all performers of any age although I prefer to talk about a Hearth and a Horizon, and in the middle of these I place the Heart.  To each of these three I have given a pair of hats. The six hats form a continuum and a complete structure for performance.
Eventually all the hats will fit habitually.


Habitual Hats and Winning are William’s acclaimed seminars for performers in all equestrian activities and any other sport.
