Psychology is about the way you think. High Performers know exactly who they are, what is important in their lives and why it is important. They have learnt how to be optimistic even in the face of adversity. They have high levels of confidence, concentration and resilience and have learnt to train their thinking skills for optimum results.
Productivity is about the way you work. High Performers focus on the most important tasks and have strategies in place to minimise distractions and achieve more in less time. High Performers focus on what is really important at work and use the time they save to build the life they want outside of work.
Recovery is about the way you relax and recharge. High Performers understand they need to find a balance between the amount of time they spend in stress (sympathetic response) and the amount of time they spend in recovery (parasympathetic response). They have strategies to help them utilise and recover energy throughout the day, month and year. Taking time out to recharge supports you in sustaining peak levels of performance for longer periods without burning out.
Physiology is about the way you eat and move. High Performers understand that regular physical activity and planned nutrition boosts energy levels and capacity for output, improves confidence levels and concentration. Fit and healthy people have lower levels of stress, anxiety and depression and a competitive advantage in the work place.
