Growth Quadrants (Part 2)Tuesday 15 September 2020
We are all human.
Sure, we have participated in functional fitness and have looked after our bodies for some matter of time making us fitter, stronger and healthier than the majority of the population…
However, we still only have 10 points to spread between different areas and priorities within our life.
Introducing the Growth Quadrant system, formulated by Kenny Kane of the Body of Knowledge Podcast – a seasoned CrossFit, Mindset, and Strength and Conditioning Coach.
The Growth Quadrant system provides a simple and structured way as to how we may shuffle our priorities around given that we are all human and have a limited amount of energy that we can spend each day.
These 10 energy points are spread across four key areas. They are:
- Physical Practice/Training
Maybe there are days that require us to run on high and expand well over our 10 points of energy.
Maybe we like to think that we can sustain this and still have a great time while doing it, and this may be the case for a short period of time.
But that will inevitably fail the longer we attempt to maintain it, and we will be forced into rest and spend just as long repaying the energy debt.
So take me for example. Right now, my priorities are spread as such:
- Work: 6
- Physical Practice: 2
- Relationships: 1
- Recovery: 1
If I’m being frank with myself, it’s no wonder why I haven’t felt a million bucks lately.
However, with this tool – the Growth Quadrants – I have the awareness to facilitate change.
I’m not saying it’s the Holy Grail, but it can provide some clarity around areas in our life that we want to change and grow.
So sit down over the weekend and give yourself an honest assessment according to the Growth Quadrant system.
