The Power of Full Engagement Book
book cover
One the of the principles of performance is the ritual. Many sports incorporate routines. There is the golf “waggle” which is the routine before a shot. Free throw shooters follow a set routine like Michael Jordan’s backward spin of the ball. Bowlers follow the identical steps to delivery.

Examine your work life and create routines. The power of the routine is that they insure that we use as little conscious energy as possible where it is not absolutely necessary, leaving us free to strategically focus the energy available to us in creative, enriching ways.
