Would you be interested in understanding how some of the elites in the world get so much done, so quick?
These individual are what we call High Performers, meaning, they outperform their peers, and society.
They are the CEOs, Executives, Profession Athletes, Olympians, Super moms & dads…. those types of people.
So, let me ask the question again… would you be interested in understanding how some of the elites in the world get so much done, so quickly?
You are probably bouncing in your chair now or perhaps drooling with your hands in the air, screaming…. YES! YES! YES!!
First, let me introduce you to the High Performance Institute and its founder Brandon Burchard.
Brandon conducted over two decade study on High Performers. The purpose of the study was to uncover HOW COME some people just WIN in life and it seems like everything they touch, they WIN #MagicTouch? They do so effortlessly, which makes it somewhat annoying to everyone else. When we are unable to understand how they achieve so much, we simply settle for “They are just good at everything.”
Unbeknownst to most that these individuals have mastered habits and mindsets that helps them win and more importantly sustain such levels of achievement.
You’ve heard the quote “Success leaves clue..”, within those close are habits that are mastered and brought to bear every time and in every situation and every project.
We call those habit The High Performance Habits. The High Performance Institute scrubbed date from global surveys, structured one-on-one interview, data analytics, academic literature reviews, coaching insights from 3,000+ high performance coaching sessions, empirical results from training. There were over a million high performance indicator assessments, three hundred thousand organizational employee, 1.6m online students, and the list goes on. As you see over two decades a lot of work was done in this study.
To uncover the common denominators, Burchard needed to make sure these habits were done deliberately, they were observable, malleable, trainable, and are effective across domains.
Finally nailing down the habit, only six habits fit in these criteria. The habit are Clarity, Energy, Necessity, Productivity, Influence, Courage.
Breaking these habits and applying them to your world, can make the difference.
On your next project or task or conversation, try this:
Now that you are familiar with the six Habits of High Performers, it can be applied to any situation or conversation or project.
Here, I will be the example of how to apply this to your life.
Six months ago, I moved from Chicago to Tampa, Florida. Best move ever!
Getting clear (seek clarity) on my destination was my first step. While knowing my end goal, I still needed to search for a home to live, so I jumped on a flight and came searching. On the day I signed my lease, it was (ENERGY). I was excited and ready for the next move. Why was I leaving Chicago? My family? My friends? Well, what’s most important to me is a healthy quality of life and the winters were getting bad, to the point of some levels of anxiety. THAT was (raising my necessity) to move. During packing time, I searched how to move either hitching a trailer to my car, renting a UHaul truck and trailer for my car, renting PODs container, or Haul container? Whichever was the most cost efficient and safe would be the winner. I had (increased my productivity) with research. Considering I’d lived in Chicago majority of my life and mentioned to friends for about nine years in a row, that I’d moving, no one believed me. Until the lease was signed and I was packing and on my last day, my influence grew. All those acts led to (demonstrating courage.)
Now, it is your turn… how can this simple framework be applied to your life?
