Cognitive Fitness w/ Gary Stebbing (Part 2)
Periodized Cognitive Fitness: Maximizing Mental Performance
Consequences of Goals
People who sustain excellence at the highest level understand all of those things and they're non-negotiable. Their goal has taken such a place in their life that they design their life to achieve it.
The biggest mistake I see is the premature establishment of goals and solutions. Not building a rich enough picture of reality. Selecting goals because they think they're the right goals, rather than spending the time to decide what the right goal is.
