Shelves: psychology , personal-change-strategy Dr. For me, the past few months have been a time of reflection about the things I have done and the things I want to accomplish in order to make my 50s the best decade of my life. With the desire to do things I was attracted to this book written by performance in business, sports, entertainment, etc.

John Eliot of the neuroscience department of Rice University. Eliot challenges the reader to Dr. Eliot challenges the reader to discover the thing he or she actually loves to do and to invest all of the self into excelling at it. The sensible course will be a drudgery all of the way. The joyfully pursued process is the certain and immediate reward that one can count on.

Anything more is gravy, but gravy is more likely to happen if one has the dedication found in this approach to anything. Among these tools is the distinction between the acting or "Trusting Mindset" and the "Training Mindset". When it is time to perform the performer focuses only upon performance, everything else, including self-evaluation is a distraction that detracts from instead of adding to the action in hand.

He describes overachievers as exceptional thinkers. What he means by this is an overachiever has the ability to create his or her own lens by which he or she sees the world and self. This as opposed to ordinary people whose view of the world is distorted by the lens view of others. Of particular interest to me is his claim that the physical feelings of nervousness or butterflies in the stomach are performance enhancers that we should embrace and come to love, instead of to avoid.

He claims people mistakenly avoid situations in which they feel this discomfort because they mistake them for anxiety. He claims that to not have the discomfort is an indicator that the person is not engaged enough or that the challenge is not providing enough pressure to matter to the person.

The book provides more tools for the reader to move toward a life of overachievement. It illustrates its many points with examples from the lives of famous people. My ultimate goal is to be a person who steps up and does more things so that I will have fewer regrets whenever I come to the end of my life.
