The very notion of performance can have multiple meanings. Performing in the corporate sense is certainly important, but flourishing mentally and physically allows for optimal leadership while also increasing general wellbeing. The daily grind is called a grind for a reason, and even the hardest-working leaders will eventually be worn away - unless they make changes to ensure a high-performance body and mind.
The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective - people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.
Business culture also improves, allowing for:
Performance is not a static, set-in-stone quality. It can be increased, and feedback, relaxation time, proper sleep, and technology can all contribute to a happier, more successful home and work environment. Instead of always seeing the negative, try to imagine successfully tackling a challenge and increasing your performance.
