Mark Sanborn, writing in "The Encore Effect", reminds us that everyday we are in a performance of sorts. Like actors in a play, there are bad performers, average performers, and exceptional performers.
Passion plus Discipline without Action = daydreaming
Discipline plus Action without Passion = a fire made from damp wood
Action plus Passion without Discipline = a race car without a driver
The right mix of PDA will move you into the exceptional category, enabling you to give a remarkable performance. Remarkable performances affect us, whether on the stage or in a meeting. They:
- Move us to act
- Make us feel good
- Cause us to laugh
- Stimulate us to think
The curtain is rising on your performance today - knock em dead!
