Have you peaked yet?
Truthfully, you've likely peaked many times. Reaching the peak need not be the end, but rather the start of even better performance.
When I first set a goal to walk 10,000 steps a day it seems hard. That's a lot of walking. How would I ever get anything done? And for a while I hovered between 6,000 and 8,000 steps. Better, but not my goal.
Then, I started (with lots of effort) reaching 10,000 steps on a daily basis. It got to be routine. I figured out how to keep moving enough to achieve my goal. And you do know what you've earned once you've achieved a goal, right? A bigger goal!
I've leveled up my goal to 12,000 steps a day, and on most days I do get it. I'm still humble about it though, because some people have told me how they routinely exceed 20,000 and even 30,000 steps. That's a lot of walking!
I raised my expectations, and my goal improved. It may not last forever, but if it lasts long enough to reach excellence in your field, it's a habit well worth developing.
Raise your expectations to raise your performance.
Then do it again.
