I have had the privilege of coaching hundreds of people. When I consider the one’s that really upped their performance, during the coaching, there are a few qualities that are common among them. One is this: They practice fast.
When high performing people discover a principle or idea that can improve their performance, they use it immediately.
Not-so-high-performing people are going to “get around to” using principles they’ve learned, but there is always some reason they can’t.
So here’s a question for you…
Is there something you’ve learned recently that you need to practice?
Don’t wait. Integrate your learnings into your day as soon as possible. The shorter the distance between discovery and practice, the more likely you will integrate it and find out whether or not it is useful.
