💪🏻5 High Performance INSIGHTS💪🏻


Free Up Time With Better Task Management & Tools

If you constantly find yourself with too many task and too little time, consider grouping similar task together and do them all at once. 

Also consider using tools to help you with time intensive work. Things like a dishwasher and a dryer can save you a ton of time.


Sometimes, the right answer is “No”

We sometimes take on task we don't need to because we want to be nice or because we don't want to be seen as unhelpful. That's not healthy. It is ok to say no to things so that we can say yes to more important things.


Your Routine Should Leave You Feeling Your Best

Use your routines to help you function on a high level. Develop and mould it so that it puts you in the best possible state to be productive at work. Don't let it overwhelm you!


Cut Yourself Some Slack

There is a difference between seeking perfection and having a high standard. Over-obsession can lead to crippling expectation and undue stress and impedes instead of empower. Cut yourself some slack and focus on progression instead of perfection.


Use ALL Your Time

Be conscious of how you spend the little pockets of time between commutes, doing housework, walking your dog, doing grocery shopping. Think of ways you can put these little pockets of time to better use.




I knew I could control one thing, and that is my time and my hours and my effort and my efficiency. — Ryan Seacrest


“Redundancy is blessed, but efficiency is divine.” ― David Brin



How do I make tomorrow my best day?

A little reflection at the end of the day can help your mind to recalibrate and autotune itself for the next day. 


It can also help your brain to set up structures that may make your next day more productive.

It seems like a simple exercise, but you will find that it goes a long way!


So try it out,

Go deep, get asking.
