Do you know that you will perform better when you are clearly focused on playing to your strengths, rather than focusing on how not to have your weaknesses exposed? Pretty obvious really, but there’s a big assumption that everyone has their finger on the pulse of their strengths. In our experience, that’s not the case.
We also know that under pressure people’s dominant thinking and behaviour patterns come out… so, if you’ve spent most of your time focused on what you need to be better at, under pressure, you’re dominant thoughts of what you’re not good enough at will predominate.
Times are tough, the pressure is on, so make sure that you are absolutely clear on what your advantages are so that you can play to your strengths and drain them dry.
Bleedin‘ obvious, but not an approach everyone is set up to exploit!
