Every person in every walk of life needs to perform to some level. In most instances people want to maximise their performance BUT it is often difficult in this “information age” to know where to start. The first step requires a basic analysis as to what outcome you desire and than work backwards. This basic concept of starting with the “end in mind” will serve you very well in most aspects of life and is vital if you are to maximise your performance.
The basis of the Performance X model in that the X is YOU and what works for me may not work for you and that to be successful the performance strategy MUST be individualised.
To often performance experts use a one size fits all approach and this is why people find it difficult to maintain a set regime. There are the basic “Gold Standards” to maximise performance in any area of life and these start with making sure physiologically and psychologically we are at our best.
Maximising sleep, regular exercise and sound nutrition are all acknowledged cornerstones of performance BUT if the strategy is not individualised than adherence will be low. There is absolutely no point telling a person they MUST sleep 8 hours, eat a certain way or spend an hour a day exercising if this is not going to be completed.
It is far better to work with the person to identify what performance strategy can be integrated into their lifestyle and works with their personality.
Every person can improve their performance it just requires a strategy that is individualised and flexible.
