Wired magazine has a nice summary of Dean Karnazes’ tips for perfection. I like #4, eat a ton of junk food. That’s pretty much the only one of his tips I follow regularly. I will now officially stop referring to Popeye’s fried chicken as a guilty pleasure. It will now be considered part of my training diet.
Tips #5 (cutting back on sleep), #6 (pretty much a variation of the Just Do It slogan), #9 (learn to adapt), and #11 (break the problem/task into smaller, manageable chunks) are good ones too.
