When you are starting a new company or running an existing one, performance is one of the things you want most from your efforts and the efforts of your team. But performance driven by willpower or the latest cup of coffee will only get you so far. What you really want is the edge that comes from a lifestyle that supports reliable, consistently high levels of success-promoting performance.
In these modern times, we are waking up to the simple fact that human energy is easily exhausted in our non-stop age of achievement. When our energy gets low, everything else slows. Our activity levels decrease, our decision making slows, our recall and memory capacities decline, and on and on.
In a performance-driven culture, there is only one way to avoid these downward spiraling, performance crushing realities for otherwise driven, goal-focused, and success-oriented professionals. It all comes down to making performance into a lifestyle and creating a culture that promotes these sustainable, healthy performance lifestyles.
