What’s the critical mistake that’s capping your performance and causing you unnecessary stress at work? It’s failing to treat yourself as an executive athlete.
Here’s the thing: The average professional athlete spends the majority of their time training and only a small percentage of their time—several hours a day, at most—actually competing. The typical executive, entrepreneur or leader devotes almost no time to training, yet must to perform on-demand ten, 12, 14 hours a day or more.
Athletes enjoy several months of off-season, most executives are fortunate to get three or four weeks of vacation a year. The career of the average professional athlete spans seven years; the average executive can expect to work 40 to 50 years.
And this is a problem—the failure of executives and entrepreneurs to train and recover properly, massively limits their performance.
The most elite performers on the planet—the best entrepreneurs, the best business leaders—they all treat themselves as executive athletes.
This talk will give you four simple, actionable steps to BECOME an executive athlete so you can forever increase your performance.
