7+ Disciplines for High Performance
There are 7 disciplines you must develop if you want to achieve all that is possible for you. You can learn these disciplines through practice and repetition until they become automatic.
1. Goal Setting
Every weekend or morning, take 10 to 15 minutes to write out your top goals you want to achieve for that week or day in the present tense. Get a special notebook or planner for this purpose. By writing out your top goals at the beginning of each week or day, you will programme them deep into your subconscious mind. This daily goal writing will activate your mental powers. It will stimulate your mind and make you more alert. Throughout the days, you will see opportunities and possibilities to move more rapidly toward your goals.
2. Planning and Organizing
Always plan your Week ahead and then refine that Plan each day where necessary.
Take a few minutes, preferably the night before, to plan out every activity of the coming day. Always work from a list. Always think on paper. This is one of the most powerful and important disciplines of all for high performance. And Yes, you can gradually graduate to electronically documenting.
3. Priority Setting
The essence of all time management, personal management, and life management is contained in your ability to set proper priorities and use of your time. This is essential for high performance.
4. Concentration on your Highest-Value Activities
Your ability to work single-mindedly on your most important task will contribute as much to your success as any other discipline you can develop.
5. Exercise and Proper Nutrition
Your health is more important than anything else. By disciplining yourself to exercise regularly and to eat carefully, you will promote the highest possible levels of health and fitness throughout your life.
6. Learning and Growth
Your mind is like a muscle. If you don’t use it, you lose it. Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field. Continuous learning does not always mean you need to spend 1 year or 2 years doing a School Programme. You can also invest your time in watching webinars, reading books, attending conferences and seminars and watching meaningful Podcasts.
7. Making Time for Important People in your Life
Relationships are everything. Be sure that in climbing the ladder of success, you do not find it leaning against the wrong building. Make time for your relationships, no matter how busy you get. It could be from a simple phone call to check up, to going to grab a drink, eating dinner together or going to the beach.
8. Make time for Rest!
We are famous for going ‘hard’ and working ourselves until we are burnt out. Make time for Rest. Your brain and your body need to rest and recharge in order to do your best work and maintain your high performance. Schedule time for sleep and practice this discipline and watch your performance and your productivity improve!
