More on What Top Performers Do

Posted 11.06.2008

Kris Dunn at the HR Capitalist blog writes today in the same wheelhouse as my recent post on Practicing for Peak Performance.  Kris highlights Geoff Colvin's new book, Talent is Overrated.  It includes a video (below) of Geoff talking about why Tiger Woods is so good at hitting buried balls out of the sand and why Chris Rock is so funny.  There's a fleeting shot of Warren Buffett in the video but no commentary on why he's so good at picking stocks.  (Wouldn't you like to know?) 

Colvin's primary point on what all top performers do?  Practice, practice, practice.  To that I would add focus, focus, focus.

What else do you think top performers do to reach the highest levels of performance?
