Topic - What is "trying hard"?

Daniels735 - on 23 Jan 2013
Sat staring at a particularly annoying boulder problem in the wall tonight I got to thinking about "trying hard"! I think both Dave Macleod and Shauna Coxsey have both mentioned in their blogs about how trying really hard makes a massive difference when they climb.

But what actually is "trying hard"? We all assume we know what it means and clearly it has both a mental and physical aspect to it - determination, the will not to let go etc but how do we do it? To me it doesn't seem enough to just say "right, this time i'm going to try really hard" so how do you get in the right frame of mind to "try hard"? Or is it something that some people can do and others just can't?

I apologise for a slightly rambling post but even trying to write down what I am trying to get across is proving difficult!
