Happy Thursday everybody! This week we are sharing some insights from the book High Performance Habits: How Extraordinary People Become That Way by Brendon Burchard. This book is full of practical tips on how to perform at your peak level. Us Caffrey’s have been trying to implement some of these great ideas into our daily practice; but as with any habit, it is taking us a bit of time to get there!
TOOLS, TACTICS AND TIPS
1.“Real success—holistic, long-term success—doesn’t come from doing what’s natural, certain, convenient, or automatic. Often, the journey to greatness begins the moment our preferences for comfort and certainty are overruled by a greater purpose that requires challenge and contribution.”
It’s OK to feel uncomfortable or unequipped for your Do Good project. Actually that’s a good sign! That means you’re stepping into something of purpose and magnitude.
2. “Just because people want to put things on your plate because you’re good doesn’t mean you should let them.”
Learning to say no is so powerful. Don’t stretch yourself too thin by taking on tasks that everybody else thinks you should: stay the course and decide what is the most important to get done at the time, and do it.
3.“If you want to feel more energized, creative, and effective at work—and still leave work with enough oomph for the “life” part—the ideal breakpoint is to stop your work and give your mind and body a break every forty-five to sixty minutes.” Your mind and body actually work best in intervals! I know taking a break is something unheard of in the “Do Good space” but in the long run, it actually gives you more energy and focus in order to accomplish things faster and perform at a higher level.
