3 keys to peak performance

Three (3) Keys to Peak Performance

There are three keys to peak performance in achieving your goals.

They are commitment, completion, and closure.

When you make a firm commitment to achieving a particular goal, and you put aside all excuses, it is very much like stepping on the accelerator of your subconscious mind. You will be more creative, determined, and focused than ever before. Great men and women are those who make clear, unequivocal commitments and then refuse to budge from them, no matter what happens.

Completion is the second ingredient in peak performance.

There is an enormous difference between doing 95% of a task and doing 100% of
a task. In fact, it is very common for people to work very hard up to the 90% or 95% level and then to slack off and delay the final completion of the task. This is a temptation that you must fight against. You must continually force yourself, discipline yourself, to resist this natural tendency and push through to completion.

Close The Loop.

The third “C”, after commitment and completion, is “closure.”

This is the difference between an “open loop” and a “closed loop.” Bringing
closure to an issue in your personal or business life is absolutely essential for you to feel happy and in control of your situation. Lack of closure, unfinished business, an incomplete action of any kind, are all major sources of stress, dissatisfaction, and even failure in business. They consume enormous amounts of physical and emotional energy.
