Focused Connection to Your Goals

Working toward your long-term goal with determination involves learning the art of “fully-focusing” on your daily tasks, the uninterrupted connection between two things: You and your directed action toward reaching your goals.

When you are focused in your training as an athlete, or in performing your daily assignments as a business professional, you are totally connected to what you are doing; your task at hand.  In the sporting world, focusing means tuning in to your body, concentrating on your coordination and technique with a simple cue or “trigger” such as “fix”, “anchor”, “connect” and “press”, whilst paying attention to your breathing, and rhythm of movement in the present moment.  In the corporate world, your focus must be adaptable, like the […]

It’s Allowed…

Let’s get one thing straight I am passionate about sport, so I have no hesitation in declaring upfront that this little diatribe as a passion piece written by a professional who spends her life working with and for the sports industry.

I want the sports industry in Australia to stick around and I want Australia back on the world stage as a dominant force in international sport. There is no hiding that fact.

I thrive on working with athletes from all manner of codes and disciplines. It is my job to get the best out of them and I stick up for them, defend them in the public arena and help them out of binds, which at times is to my […]

Success is Hard Work

Success is a concept with a variety of definitions for people depending on what they are trying to achieve at a given point in their lives.

Success is not something that can be easily defined because it means something different to every person who aspires towards it.

For some, success is about outcomes. How much money they make, how many medals they win, or how long they hold a ranking, or who they have beaten in a race.

For others, success is more individually driven. Improving their performances, being the best they can be, mastering a skill, or enjoying the act of whatever it is they are doing.

Not matter what success means to you or what field or endeavour you are trying […]

How does Emotional Intelligence Assist Performance?

Higher levels of Emotional Intelligence (E.I.) have been associated with superior performance by teams in business for some time and various coaching programs have been aimed at developing skills and abilities in this area.  Whilst E.I. has been thought to have a similarly positive impact in sport, the empirical evidence to support this has been scarce.  However, an important piece of practical research has been carried out which assessed the effect of E.I. on the performance of professional cricket teams in the South African national, first class competition.  The research, carried out by David Crombie, Carl Lombard, and Tim Noakes at the University of Cape Town, found that E.I. had a significant effect on the results of teams in […]

Just do it!

This slogan from the famous sporting goods manufacturer, Nike, has become recognized worldwide.  Apart from its marketing appeal it is worth looking further into its sentiment and adopting its meaning.

At Mental Notes Consulting we constantly talk about the ‘right’ state of mind to perform at your peak.  Many people assume that this means that everything we do relates to thinking – whether it’s planning, positive self-talk, motivational thoughts, or imagining successful performance.

Whilst these skills are incredibly useful and important, they are only half of the picture when it comes to successful performance.

Actions have power.

It is important to plan, set out routines, set goals, and have positive thoughts but if there are no actions to back all of this up […]

Do you want to be an Iconoclast?

Do you want to be an iconoclast?  Do you know what an iconoclast is?  Do you want to do something that others say can’t be done?  Because if you do, you are an iconoclast or are at least aspiring to be iconoclastic.

Iconoclast by Gregory Berns is a page-turning tour de force that (unintentionally) cheekily winks at the numerous pop psychology books currently available on airport book stands that try to instruct the reader on the pursuit of personal excellence and how expertise is created and success achieved in a variety of performance domains.

Berns is a neuroeconomist who aims to make sense of the complex links between the decisions that humans make and the firing patterns of neurons in specific […]
