Episode #56

Reaching Effortless High Performance

We recommend you ask yourself this question:

Is the problem you are trying to solve a pickle jar?

Are you straining as hard as you can to solve a problem? You know adding more force will likely give you the result you are looking for. But is that the best way to go about it?

Also, not all problems are pickle jars. Sometimes you need a whole different perspective or set of tools to get the job done. 

In this episode we explore the idea of levelling up one's skills to make problem solving an effortless task. How can some people make it look so easy? We also look at "the right amount of frustration" for performance optimisation. It's good to know when your comfort zone has become to comfy or when you've stepped out too far. Striking that balance is like designing a game.

At ikario we have often spoken about the concept of "Low Tension - High Performance".

The premise is simple. You want to be operating at maximum efficiency and output, while feeling no tension, no stress, no worry, no panic, no anxiety, no confusion or any other negative emotion associated with performance.

Join Shane and Dean for this impromptu chat about all these topics.
