A great book is Nassim Talebs' Antifragile.
Resilience resists shocks and stays the same.
Anti-fragile responds and gets better with stress and load.
High performers don't resist stress and load, they get better because of it. Like a human bone getting stronger with load their is a also a breaking point. Knowing that limit and lifting that limit is also anti-fragile.
High Performance is not about passing breaking point.
It is staying in the zone of anti-fragile.
That is handling with care for growth and leverage to win the long game!
