Finding a purpose, whether stumbling upon it by accident or by good or bad fortune, requires responsibility, ownership and nurturing to bring to fruition.
Considering the holistic nature of the performance we are seeking is vital to our success.
When we are able to focus on particular desired outcomes and formulate pragmatic approaches to reach those outcomes, we as humans most often have the ability to achieve great things.
Most importantly, having the belief that we have the necessary skills, knowledge and suitable attitude or mindset to deal with what faces us brings the confidence required to face future challenges, and not see them as threats.
Being able to identify and manage available personal resources effectively will almost certainly define how well we endure and whether we will just survive or thrive.
Often, the definition of performance barely outlives the process of understanding the current situation.
