They maximise right action + right timing!
Think back 500 years ago when the sail ships were massive and hard to maneuver. Even expert sailors would have struggled in a storm, in a narrow harbour with a howling gale!
High performance has clear days with bright stars that make the path obvious. And many days where clouds and storms have hit and the path is unclear. How to move forward or not?
When the storm hits and the narrow harbour may be near, a rest is the best way to re-evaluate and move forward.
Like BB King, the great blues player said; 'it's the rests that make the music'!
High Performers know how to play and win the long game!
