7 Secrets To High Performance Thinking

Part 6 - Humor

John Colanzi

In Parts 1 through 5 of this series we've discussed relaxation, visualization, autosuggestion, goal setting and whole-brained thinking.

The Taoists have a saying, "The Journey is the reward."

High performance thinkers exemplify that remark.

They pick their profession, not because of the money they expect to make, but because of the joy it brings them.

In the words of J. Paul Getty, they've learned to thrive on the pressure.

They don't see what they do as do or die.

They've learned to laugh at themselves and try not to take things too seriously.

What others may consider a problem, they consider a challenge.

Their sense of humor and ability to enjoy their work increases as their abilities increase.

Many times they spend long hours on a task not because they feel a need to work hard, but because they have so much fun at what they do.

When we find joy in doing what we love time flies by in the blink of an eye.

If you're ready to be a high performance thinker, learn to laugh more.

Find work that gives you joy.

Stop looking at the task at hand as a struggle. View it as a magnificent game.

To the high performance thinker, there is no line between work and play. His work is his passion.

In the sports world it's called being in the zone. High performance thinkers perform in the same manner.

* They are acting in the moment.

* They have no doubts.

* Time almost stands still.

* They are focused to the point that outside influences are literally blocked out.

Stop trying so hard and start enjoying the process.

In part seven of this report we'll summarize the Secrets Of High Performance Thinking.

Wishing You Success, John Colanzi
