How do you break into the top 5%?

Are you a top performer in your field?

Top performers all have different journeys to get there, but we can certainly learn something from each path.  Look for success because it leaves clues.  Are you searching in the right places for success?  In the #CJJblog this week, I give you some tips on how you can become a top 5% performer in your field.  As a successful basketball coach for many years, I always wanted to get better.  Here’s how you can, too.  Enjoy.

  • Be curious.  Are you asking the right questions?  You can learn something from everyone, if you are in the right (curious) mindset and asking the right questions.  Being a learn-it-all is better than being a know-it-all.  Which one are you?
  • Work ethic.  Do you have a daily schedule?  Are you holding yourself accountable?
  • Team.  Do you have a great team to help elevate you?  Who are you surrounding yourself with?  Complement yourself with people who possess talent and also share your same mission.
  • Student.  Are you student of your profession?  If you have to drive to learn and grow, what are you doing about it (seminars, conferences, books, etc.)?
  • Self-care.  How are you taking care of yourself?  Do you get enough sleep and eat healthy?  
  • Communication.  How clear are your expectations of others?  Are you open to feedback regarding your performance?
  • Learning.  How do you learn from your actions?  If you fail, what changes are you making?  If you succeed, what systems are you developing to ensure the same future success?
