Why Athletes Get Into The Zone and Why You Suck

Lebron, Nadal, Crosby:

  • To win the game.
  • ...in 4-quarters/3-sets/3-periods.
  • ...against X opponent.

One clear goal -- with a time limit.

Chances are:

  • You have tons of goals.
  • You're trying to tackle 5/10/20/30 goals at this minute.
  • You never know if you performed well (i.e., you won or loss).
  • You have goals you want to "accomplish today, but if I can't accomplish them today, I can accomplish them tomorrow. YAY! HUG ME!"

Performing at your peak takes getting into the zone -- with one distinct, clear, freak-tastic goal that lets you know:

  • "If I don't acomplish X in Y minutes/hours/periods, I lose."
  • "If I accomplish X in Y minutes/hours/periods, I win."

Psychologically giving yourself a win/lose scenario gets you performing.

The losses also give you feedback on what you can do to win in subsequent scenarios.

How to Get Into a Zone

Here's what you can do:

  1. Choose something you want to beat the mother %^^% down in the next 5 minutes.
  2. Set a timer.
  3. Go.

You = in the zone.

Use the above model to tackle other stuff/goals/tasks/projects.

Keep track of your win/loss records; make it a game.

See yourself performing ridiculously much more, as your more productive boot-ay gets stuff %$^@%$^@ DONE.

Win.

Freaktastically clear goals.
