Level 3.65 - Practice

level your practice
Level Your Life - [The Level of Practice] [3.65]


According to Sun Tzu in "The Art of War" the war is won before the battle begins.
 Years of experience have convinced us that tommorows game is won in today´s practise, before the war ever begins.  Be reminded that attention to detail through consistent, intentional practice positions us for extraordinary performance.

Practice is the way of mastery. 

It´s the eagerness to do everything necessary to be the absolute best you can be.
The warrior journey of mastery may be a thousand miles, but it begins with a single,high-quality first step called diligent preparation. This focus on the initial step alone is considered success.
We encourage you to practice each day as if you are preparing for an important event in your life, in other words, such preparation is usually done with greater-than-usual focus, intention and intensity.
We invite you to prepare as if this was your last chance to prove your worth in your RESPECTED field .
When you make this level of commitment  your performance becomes extraordinary.

You don´t become a champion, you choose to be one now, in practice.

Trust that consistent, intentional preparation is, in itself, extraordinary behavior.

Declaration: Practicing through diligent, consistent preparation is the joy and achievement I experience. Mastery is the practice itself. Results are the by-product of my efforts in preparing for extraordinary performances.

Reflection: What three things have I not been doing that I can do in today´s practice/work to help me kick my performance up a notch or two ?
