Peak Performance – No guts no glory or rather…
…no action, no outcome.
Identifying the need for change is something people do on a daily basis and is a positive mindset to have.
It requires a certain strength of character to admit that your performance could be better, however this is not enough. It’s what happens next that will be the difference between success and perceived failure.
Have you ever been to a restaurant with 3 items on the menu? It’s pretty easy to make a decision there. At a restaurant with a 50 item menu, it suddenly becomes a laborious task.
People don’t do well with choice, becoming stuck in the ‘paralysis of analysis’, and having already identified a desired change often become frozen by the seemingly infinite array of options around how to proceed and as a result end up doing nothing.
Whilst there is no wrong way to achieve change, what is certain is that if there is no action, there is no outcome. You must participate in your own transformation. Knowledge without implementation is useless.
Knowing how to change and not doing anything about it is the same, and in my opinion even worse, as not knowing at all.
So what can we do to overcome this?
Here is a fast, action focused outline to implement over the next week…
- Identify one change you would like make
- Within a two minute limit, set an immediate action (quick win), a twenty four hour action and a forty eight hour action to get you there, or certainly moving towards where you want to be.
- Do the immediate action immediately!
- Remember that challenges are just feedback, something to learn from.
What would you do differently the next time?
Progress = happiness.
As long as you are moving forward (improving) every day then you are winning.
