Have you ever wondered if science can pinpoint what is needed for peak performance? Join me as I dive into the book The Art of the Impossible by Steven Kotler. This episode explores the science of achieving peak performance and offers practical guidance for accomplishing ambitious goals.

If you've ever felt that your daily activities don't align with your true talents and passions, this episode is for you! Learn about Gay Hendricks' four zones of operation—Incompetence, Competence, Excellence, and Genius—and discover how to spend more time in your Zone of Genius. 
Introduction to the Four Zones:
Zone of Incompetence: Tasks you're not good at, leading to frustration and inefficiency.
Zone of Competence: Tasks you're good at, but so are many others; lacks uniqueness.
Zone of Excellence: Tasks you perform extremely well and receive recognition for, but may not be your true calling.
Zone of Genius: Where your natural talents and passions intersect, providing joy, purpose, and energy
Reflect on your current activities and determine which tasks fall into each of the four zones. Choose one task to delegate or minimize from your Zone of Incompetence or Competence and one task to focus more on in your Zone of Genius this week.
Need support locating your Zone of Genius? I wanted to create a simple way that you all could get personal feedback from me. So I created the Life Balance Breakthrough Assessment.
