In a sport example it seems obvious for an
athlete, coach and their support team to be healthy and well at the main event.
But after completing hundreds of performance reviews the data is clear! Support staff and coaches often arrive shattered and exhausted. Some call it 'giving my all'.
They would never allow that to happen to their athletes. The plans, evidence and good coaching would prevent it.
What important details do you miss when you are shattered? But it continues. Like the training doctor on another 18 hour shift. Is that the Dr you want operating on you? But we're used to it even if it doesn't make sense.
Sport has a choice. Exceptional performers see the big picture for the whole team. They know their limits. They are always playing the long game and they are ready.
Check your energy. Which game are you in.
