How to Bring Your A-Game Every Day: Tips for Peak Performance During Times of Uncertainty

In times of change, turmoil, and uncertainty, how can you ensure you bring your best self to work every day? This is a question that many of us are grappling with, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting changes to our work environments.

Jeff Kirchick and Carson Heady discuss some strategies for peak performance in the face of uncertainty. They talk about the importance of mindfulness, being present in the moment, and focusing on the task at hand, without bringing the baggage of past successes or failures.

Jeff recommends detaching from events and recognizing that, in the grand scheme of things, our successes and failures are just small blips in the universe. He also advises infusing your passions into your work and recognizing that the things you love can be parlayed into your role to make each day better.

Carson draws on the teachings of Phil Jackson, a legendary basketball coach, who emphasizes the importance of mindfulness and being present in the moment. He also stresses the need to let go of past successes or failures and focus on the lessons learned, which can inform your future activities and make your processes better.

In times of uncertainty, it’s important to remember that nothing good or bad lasts forever. By focusing on mindfulness, being present in the moment, and infusing your passions into your work, you can bring your A-game every day, no matter what challenges you may be facing.
