Last week I was invit­ed by a stu­dent to speak at an event she was orga­niz­ing. The theme we select­ed togeth­er is actu­al­ly the same theme as the free guide I pro­vide on this web­site: 3 Pil­lars of High Per­for­mance


I had tremen­dous fun doing it, as you can see from the pic­ture above. 

I was sched­uled to speak for 20 min­utes and then take 5 min Q&A.… I am afraid I blew that… Q&A start­ed to hap­pen through­out and we end­ed up close to an hour ses­sion… and still there was more to talk about…

And then it struck me… For me the top­ic is real­ly sim­ple… But I am clear­ly not at the same place as every­one else. Maybe it was just this spe­cif­ic audi­ence, but a lot of oth­er peo­ple I talk to tell me the same thing… While there is pow­er in sim­ple, most peo­ple focus on their tech­ni­cal abil­i­ty, the stud­ies, the aca­d­e­mics, the “how to do” the job, and for­get com­plete­ly about the sys­tem that exe­cutes all of this, themselves.

I should not be sur­prised, I teach this day in an day out, I talk to both stu­dents and non-stu­dents and I meet a lot of peo­ple… yet… This knowl­edge seems to be sur­pris­ing to many people. 

The oth­er cool thing I got to do with this audi­ence is the con­tent which I could not fit into the guide and keep its size man­age­able… In the guide you will find links to this blog. I wrote 7 arti­cles about the 3 pil­lars and what you can DO right now to start the process of their opti­miza­tion. Had I includ­ed them on the guide I would prob­a­bly need to call it  book… Any­ways, I repeat­ed exact­ly what is on the arti­cles and the reac­tion of the audi­ence was so cool. I could see each per­son­’s eyes sparkling as they dis­cov­ered for them­selves each pil­lar and how to man­age them. 

Some of the peo­ple in the audi­ence have already con­tact­ed me. Maybe the tim­ing was right for every­one… What I wish is that every one of them has had a remark­able experience!

So if you have not down­loaded the free guide… get it now!
