Repetition is the mother of all learning. I found that to be able to let go as an athlete and come fully into the moment, I needed to be prepared fully for the coming event or the performance. Preparation requires you to be proactive. Proactivity is to act in advance and set yourself up for success, as opposed to being reactive and leaving it to the last minute.
Consider this, great “leaders inspect what they expect.” In business, top leadership conducts inspections as part of their risk management and quality assurance. Without proper inspection methods, even successful leaders experience how quickly things can go wrong.
Almost all of the business corporations I’ve worked with are challenged to find the balance between getting results and the well-being of their human capital or staff. They are so focused on external results that their leadership has not learned the science of performance from a health perspective.
