A couple weeks ago I wrote an article about speaking for a group of Allianz Outperformers in Scottsdale.

We, of course, we’re talking about peak performance strategies to show up as your best.

One concept is what I call the “Vital 4%.”

If you’ve never heard me mention this, 1 hour out of a 24 hour day = 4% of your day. And I’m a big believer that if you can set the tone in this first hour, you’ve got a pretty good shot at owning the day before the day owns you.

So, I asked them:

“If you want to be your best every single day, personally and professionally, what are some of the most important things you can do in the Vital 4%?”

Their answer was something I’ve never heard before.

Actually, check that. I have heard it before, from lots of groups I’ve spoken to. I’ve just never heard it EMPHASIZED as much as this group did.

It was so energetic that I had to create a video on it:

Keep in mind, these are the top 50 performers in the entire company. And success leaves clues.

Their answer was probably not what you’re expecting but from what I’ve seen with so many of the high achieving people with whom I’ve been fortunate to work, it makes perfect sense.

Wishing you all the best and keep Outperforming!
