Five P’s of High Performance
Ever wondered what it takes to really become a high performer?
Actually, if you can master these five elements – you will join the ranks of the high performers. The great thing about this is it is your choice. No one can force you to use these five elements, nor can you get to the high performance level without using them. So what are the five P’s?
Let’s look at each one…
This first one is more of a connection point in you must live every moment of your life in the present. Sure, you can dream about the future and you can reflect upon the past to learn lessons. However, the primary location for you is in the present. By being in the presence, you focus your energies on getting things done – which is the mark of high performer.
Here we are primarily focused upon your mindset. Are you positive and optimistic? If not, you will have a difficult time getting to the top. Also, are you able to deal with set backs and adversity? Look, as a high performer you will be challenged early, often and late – therefore, your ability to offset these negative challenges with a superior “can-do” mindset – keeps you on track to high performance.
Rarely will you find high performers who have issues or a lack of mastery of the interpersonal and persuasion skills. You will need to learn about behavioral styles and the world of NLP to Master the competency of persuasion. The cool thing is you can learn these skills as it is seldom a trait found at birth. People learn how to use their persuasion insights and you can learn to persuade others.
The key to productivity is two fold. First, you must understand what is the most important or highest priority to focus your time and energy upon in the present? Working the highest priorities is job one. The second is to learn how to balance efficiency and effectiveness in your decision making or choice selection. Your goal is to make a higher return on your time investments than any one else is currently doing. Therefore, you create more value in a world where everyone has the same allotment of time.
The most overlooked element for high performance. If your health is bad or your energy levels are low – how will you be able to work at a higher level than any one else? Okay. Your health is a combination of factors such as eating habits, exercise habits, sleep habits and rest or reflection time. To be a high performer, you need to develop a self discipline of great health. And, balance in these factors is critical for your overall success. So what is your plan for living a long and healthy life? Again, it is your choice so here is too a long and successful life.
There you have the Five P’s for High Performance. Review them and commitment them to memory and most importantly – use these key elements to join the ranks of high performers.
