1 Weekly Habit That Will Push You To Peak Performance

1 Weekly Habit That Will Push You To Peak Performance | habits | Scoop.it

Most of us have the desire to be high-performing. The alternative is boredom and less personal pride. Entrepreneurs especially, with their names on the sign, aim high.

 

In the sports world, athletes create rituals and regulate how they live in order to increase their performance. Business people tend to make to-do lists and set goals -- but not much else. I think that’s a lost opportunity. Entrepreneurs are no different than athletes: For both groups, peak performance requires attention, reflection, and a plan that goes beyond goal attainment.

Why You're Failing to Adopt the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Why You're Failing to Adopt the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People | habits | Scoop.it

I remember meeting Dr. Stephen R. Covey during my days as a corporate manager. It was at a training conference that ran for about two days straight, and I was blown away by his ability to captivate the crowd, present salient details, and whip through a presentation.

 

The author and speaker, who wrote The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People in 1989, died tragically in a bike accident in 2012. His son, Stephen M.R. Covey, has continued the legacy of disseminating productivity strategies in the workplace and is also a book author and speaker. Recently, I talked to him about his latest research on how to stay efficient at work.

I love this book. It was one of the first ones that i read while working in a banking job that I did not enjoy. Stephen's teachings on habits helped me to change my life and start working to build better and better processes for habits in both my life and others lives. Definitely check it out if you haven't already.

The 25-year-old business book is still supremely relevant but the number of distractions fighting for your attention might make you work a little harder.

J.J. Thomas's insight:

Family business has a completely different emotional dynamic that people often forget. Children and grandchildren can be used as leverage for getting your point across which is just bad business. The quote "the next generation stand on their shoulders, not in their shoes." is a great one!
