3 Key Points

  1. What Is High-Performance Costing You?: Many people approach a high-performance life in a volatile way. They feel that sacrificing sleep, health, and relationships is worth it in order to achieve success. The truth is, that mindset might not just be hurting you in the long term, it’s probably not optimal in the short term. Instead of looking at what you need to sacrifice to be successful, try to see how you can optimize your life in ways that improve yourself both in the future and the present.
  2. How You Show Up In Your Private Life Affects Your Professional Life: If you can set up your private life to be one of support, joy, and fulfillment, you’ll notice a significant trickle-down effect in your professional life. Investing in a happy home life not only leads to more satisfaction, but you’ll also notice improvements in your professional performance as well.
  3. The Long Game Of High-Performance: With rapidly improving medical technology and an enhanced understanding of how aging works, it’s expected that lifespans will increase significantly in the near future. A true high-performer understands the power of compound interest, and how the actions you take now have a profound effect on the quality of your life 10, 20, or 50 years from now. Respect your future self, and make decisions with their best interest in mind. You’ll thank yourself later!
