Finding Your 2024 Peak Performance Zone - EP120

Welcome back to The Hockey Journey Podcast, Episode 120, "Finding Your 2024 Peak Performance Zone." I'm your host, Coach Lance Pitlick, and this episode is proudly presented by Online Hockey Training dot com. As we step into the new year, it's time for reflection, goal-setting, and navigating the challenges life throws our way. Before we dive into our conversation, a quick reminder to check out for exclusive access to my extensive database of off-ice stickhandling, passing, and hockey shooting drills. It's a gift from me to you. In this episode, we take a unique approach to the typical New Year's resolutions discussion, steering away from their often futile nature. Instead, we explore strategies and techniques from impactful books that have shaped my journey over the years. We kick off with insights from "Hyperfocus: How to Be More Productive in a World of Distraction" by Chris Bailey. Delving into the importance of attention, deliberate focus, and the science behind productivity, we uncover practical ways to achieve our goals. Quotes from the book, such as "Productivity is not about cramming more into our days but doing the right thing in each moment," challenge conventional notions. Next up, we explore "The Power of Full Engagement" by James E. Loehr and Tony Schwartz. Shifting the paradigm from time management to energy management, we discuss principles like balancing energy expenditure with intermittent renewal and living life as a series of sprints. Notable quotes touch on the impact of positive rituals, hydration, and the mental equivalent of "eating junk food" through excessive television watching. We round off the episode by encouraging you to jump into 2024 with a renewed focus on your values, lessons learned, and the person you aspire to be. Whether it's improving your fitness routine, reducing screen time, or honing your hockey skills, the goal is to find your peak performance zone and live with intention.
