We all have moments where we are surprised by how well we perform – coordinating a productive meeting, nailing a great job interview or discovering an elegant solution to a friend’s problem.
But here’s what is missing – the act of sitting down afterwards and asking ourselves the question ‘how did that happen?’
Hitting a zone of high-performance feels magical – there is a shroud of mystery cast over performing in ‘the zone’. Yet, there is nothing magical about high performance. It can just as easily be broken down and replicated. Imagine if you could put yourself into ‘the zone’ at will! The upside here is too good to ignore.
We all have moments of genius. But the difference between genius and expertise is consistency.
