Improving skill means that the performance of any motor task becomes more efficient, thereby reducing the time taken to complete the task and the level of effort required. This increased level of skillfulness could also mean more enjoyment and satisfaction for the performer by increasing the ease with which the task can be completed or by allowing new, more complex skills to be attempted. If by understanding the processes that govern the control of movement we can show the way for all individuals to improve their ability to perform the myriad of motor tasks that they confront, then we can claim to have made a real contribution to improving the quality of life within our society. - Robert Kerr KIN 170
