Spending the Time but not Getting the Desired Results?

Eduardo Briceño in his TED talk on “How to get better at the things you care about” shares insights as to why you may not be improving at the things you care about despite the time and energy spent.  Eduardo shares his perspective on how successful people and teams  purposefully alternate between the zones of learning and performance.  In the learning zone, the goal is improvement.  In this zone, you work on activities to strengthen areas and because they are less familiar territory, it is expected and accepted that you will make mistakes from which you will learn.

When in the performance zone, the goal is the execution of your best self and the minimization of mistakes.

“Performance zone maximizes our immediate performance while the learning zone maximizes our growth and future performance.”  Do you know how to spend the right amount of time in each zone to be the best that you can be?
