What an exhausting day. There are some people of course who would have found it slightly more exhausting than others. I am confident that American John Isner and Frenchman Nicolas Mahut who are still slogging it out after three days of meeting over a net and tying their fifth set 69-69, would be desperate for someone, anyone to win the damn thing. And then to football, with our very own Socceroo’s making a valiant effort in defeating Serbia 2-1, although that particular dream is now over. And what about the monumental event in Australia today. The first female Prime Minister ever. Decision making, negotiation, time management, flexibility, mental stamina and endurance were essential elements in all of these world events today. These elite skills are a direct result of what you eat, how much you sleep, how much stress you have on board and how much you move your body. So what we are really talking about is PERFORMANCE. Juliepedia (which is a highly acclaimed and accurate source) defines Per – form – ance as ‘achieving or accomplishing your personal or professional goals within a specific time period to the best of your ability.’ You don’t need to be an elite athlete or running the country for your performance to be important. What are you aspiring to in your everyday life and can you use tennis, politics or World Cup insights to help you?
