Preparation Over Performance

February 13, 2024

Caffeinated Thought of the Week:

Think back to your last presentation, game, performance, or project. Were you more concerned about the outcome or your preparation? Most people become overly fixated on the end result and lose sight of the days leading up to it.

High performers often do the opposite; they treat “practice” or the days in preparation as the most important, and then let the end result take care of itself. This is where the 6P comes in.

6P Formula: Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance.

Let’s be people who sweat in preparation, so we don’t bleed in battle.

Quote of the Week:

“If you gave me six hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend the first four sharpening the axe" - Abraham Lincoln
