Introduction to The Three Laws of Performance

Last month, the thinkspace book club read The Three Laws of Performance: Rewriting The Future of Your Organization and Your Life by Steve Zaffron & Dave Logan. I’m writing this post to give our online community some insight into what we read and learned.

The book started off by discussing “The Power of Rewriting The Future.” Really, this point is huge. Without understanding this power the three individual laws listed in this book will make no practical sense. I learned that we must rewrite the things that aren’t working in our lives and our careers if we want real breakthroughs and change. One of the points that I highlighted was, “For every ‘problem,’ there is a future that’s already been written about it.” This is what’s called a “default future.” There are many different aspects that play into our default futures- experience, lessons learned, fear, assumptions, etc.

Therefore we must create our own future, and live into our creation. When we rewrite our future and live into our “created future” we have so much more power as individuals, leaders, entrepreneurs, CEOs, and parents.

I will be writing about each of the three laws listed in this book over my next few blog posts. Stay tuned if you’re interested in learning more about this book, and it’s guide to powerful, and action-oriented living.

    While I haven’t read this book yet, it kind of feels like what I have been more actively paying attention to over the last few years. It all stems from have a BHAG both personally and professionally, looking at what my desired outcome is, and figuring out how to back into it. The vision boarding exercise is still something I really want to do with the team. Does this book discussion that concept?

      Yeah definitely. However, the three laws give you practical tools on how to actually live in your created future- rather than just talk about it. Stay tuned for my summary of each individual law!
