The “YIPS” of SharePoint 2016

Apr 28, 2015 4:41:08 PM

Do you know what the “yips” are?  According to Wikipedia, the yips is a term applied to sports players who lose fine motor skills without apparent explanation. Athletes affected by the yips demonstrate a sudden, unexplained loss of previous skills. Athletes affected by the yips sometimes recover their ability, sometimes compensate by changing technique, or may be forced to abandon their sport at the highest level. Perhaps the most famous example of someone with the yips is former big-league baseball player Chuck Knoblauch, a second baseman who during his tenure with the New York Yankees seemingly forgot how to throw a ball from his position to first base. And there’s pro basketball player Charles Barkley, who golfs with a strange hitch-push motion when swinging. Check it out on YouTube if you haven’t seen it before.
