…you’ll learn how to connect the principles of self-coaching to biohacking. You may already be doing some things, but this topic will help you fine-tune your approach in simple, yet powerful, ways.
High performers typically know the value of coaches: experts who can train them and guide them toward goals. But what if you could become your own coach?
Podcast guest Jason Goldsmith emphasizes the value of combining the mental and physical aspects of human performance. He knows, too, that it’s important to learn to coach yourself to achieve any kind of life success you go after. Self-coaching doesn’t mean you do it all on your own, it means that you take charge of yourself, for yourself.
This episode brings these concepts together so you can be in charge of yourself and be confident and purposeful when making decisions.
A globally recognized performance coach and founder of Goldsmith Performance, Jason’s best known for his work with golfers, from junior, to amateur to professional skill levels. He also coaches athletes from other major sports, as well as Fortune 500 executives.
He’s distilled his knowledge and partnered with David Novak, cofounder & former CEO and Chairman of Yum! Brands (owner of 45,000+ restaurants) to present sports and business coaching for high performance. They’ve created a practical guidebook for you to learn how to be your own best coach: “Take Charge Of You: How Self Coaching Can Transform Your Life and Career.”
In “Take Charge of You,” the value of coaching clearly applies to how you coach yourself:
This conversation covers strategies to develop an understanding of who you are and what drives you. “That is a crucial part of choosing your SBT (single biggest thing): it should feel big, important, impactful, even aspirational,” Jason says in his book. “There is a difference between setting a goal and choosing a destination.”
You can outline a process with that knowledge that sets you up for success. And then add in something you may not have considered:
“Joy is a critical ingredient, and I don’t think enough people have enough joy in their day-to-day life,” Jason says. “It’s really important for people to know what it is that brings them joy and what are the things that diminish their joy. So, if I was able to biohack my day, what are the things I do every single day that make me feel the best possible version of myself? But then what are the things that get in the way of that joy? And then how do I eliminate those joy blockers and have more of those joy builders?”
You’ll find out how in this episode!
“Take Charge of You” includes do-it-yourself lessons, stories, tips, and questions to ask yourself to track your personal growth and professional development. You can follow this blueprint for self-coaching, no matter what your goals may be.
