Last year I read or listened to a lot of books. Some fantastic, some mediocre. By the end of the year I had a fair list of books that I had found interesting or powerful. This year while continuing to consume new content I plan to revisit some of the best books I have read in the past hopefully to pick up even more on a second pass.
This past week I have been relistening to Peak Performance by Steve Magness and Brad Stulberg. Although I first listened to it only 3 months ago I wanted to revisit this one first because it left such a positive impression first time around (previous review here: http://www.drchrisharper.co.uk/blog/book-review-peak-performance).
I have massively enjoyed listening to this again. The main points were fresh enough in my memory that this second listen will really help to cement them there and I definitely feel I have taken in more of the fine detail allowing me to put more of this into action.
Appropriate stress is beneficial. However properly considering rest is vital, both throughout the day, off days, holidays etc.
Optimise your routines. Minimise your need for extraneous decision making to avoid decision fatigue.
Sound mind and sound body go hand in hand. Look after both.
Avoid multitasking. It just doesn’t work.
Seek out challenges that just marginally stretch your capabilities. Learn from your failures.
A non-egotistical Purpose is one of the most powerful motivators there is. Find yours.
Peak Performance is a great book and once again I would strongly recommend everyone read it. Click here to get your own copy: https://amzn.to/2V0P8og
