The Six Pillars of Peak Performance

A pillar is, according to Merriam-Webster, “a firm upright support for a superstructure.” If you want to support that superstructure which is your business, or even your life, you need strong pillars.

What is Peak Performance?

I like the quote used in our last blog post http://richsandsseminars.com/2016/01/2016-a-peak-performance-year/ from Neotherapy that went like this: ““Peak performance is the maximum enhancement of all mental, emotional, physical and situational elements that let us reach optimal level.” Again, It’s not just physical, not just the act of “doing” something at your best effort. It’s a combination of[…]

2016: A Peak Performance Year

George/Mary Ann Was Right!

It’s been one of those weird weeks. Torn. That’s what I’ve been. Torn. Yes/No, Too Old/Just Right. Shoulda/Coulda/Woulda. What’s he talking about? I’ve been doing two things this week: booking classes for the rest of 2015 and trail running lots of miles while focusing on getting extremely fit. Outside of those things and my wonderful[…]

Ideally, it would be perfect if the extra money you need would[…]

Back to Basics Works (Again)

I’m recently (and still, it seems) recovering from a hamstring issue. It’s healing, slowly, but healing nonetheless. Sunday, I decided to test it out with an eight mile, progression run (gets faster each mile). Normally, an eight mile run is not a big deal. Unfortunately, I had not been that far in two months.
