4. 4. Peak Focus Optimized Performance Formula SM __________________________________________________________________ Introduction “When you improve a little each day, eventually big things occur…. Don’t look for the big, quick improvement. Seek the small improvement one day at a time. That’s the only way it happens – and when it happens, it lasts.” - John WoodenAchieving optimized performance is not a destination but a continuous journey. Bydeliberately elevating our level of performance in everything we do, we get one step closerto achieving optimized performance, a crucial step in reaching the greatest level of successpossible.You may be familiar with the philosophy known as Kaizen, created in Japan following WorldWar II. The word Kaizen means “continuous improvement”. It comes from the Japanesewords “kai” which means “change” or “to correct” and “zen” which means “good”.Kaizen is based on making changes anywhere that improvements can be made. Westernphilosophy may be summarized as, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The Kaizen philosophy is to“do it better, make it better, and improve it even if it isn’t broken, because if we don’t, wecan’t compete with those who do.”Kaizen is a long-term approach that systematically seeks to achieve small, incremental andconstant changes.The Peak Focus Optimized Performance Formula was developed to provide you with an easyway to not only measure your level of performance, but to easily identify opportunities toelevate your level of performance - and then do something about it!This book will walk you through the four components that compose the formula: Ability Activity Aim PassionWe believe that these four components make up your performance level. And with agoal of optimizing your performance level, it’s important to increase the level of thesefour components to net a greater outcome. We will demonstrate how to achieve small,incremental and constant changes that can produce dramatic results.Optimized performance really is a special feeling - one you’ll never forget. 5
