Output: Optimizing Your Performance with Lessons Learned from Sport 

Sustain high performance through what you can control: your output. 

You don’t need to be an elite athlete to be at the top of your game. By understanding the dynamic relationship between your objectives and the actions required to achieve them, you can perform at the highest level in your profession—consistently, on demand, when it counts. If you’ve got your eyes locked on your outcome, you need to get your mind set on your output. 

In Output, Olympic physiologist and performance consultant Ben Sporer combines his scientific expertise with decades of experience in sport and business to simplify the strategies of high-performing athletes and how they can apply to anyone, in any field. By explaining the mechanics of the Core 4 performance factors and reframing the link between preparation, action, and purpose, Sporer reveals a performance solution that empowers you to prize output over outcome. 

Whether you’re an executive, an entrepreneur, an artist, or an athlete—if you’re ready to see what you can achieve when working at your best, Output will help you get there. This accessible and integrated approach to high-level human performance is a must-read resource that will help you prioritize and strategize your efforts toward your highest level of productivity and success.

“In Output, Ben Sporer introduces a paradigm shift that has the potential to revolutionize the performance industry. Drawing on my twenty years of experience in executive and leadership performance, I recognize the transformative power of focusing on output rather than outcome. This innovative approach will not only reshape the way performers approach their craft but also transform the work of those who support them. As a CEO, executive leadership consultant, and combat veteran military officer, I have encountered various strategies and frameworks to optimize performance. However, Output by Ben Sporer stands out as an indispensable resource for individuals who are truly dedicated to achieving peak performance. It has already changed the way I approach my work, and I am excited to see the far-reaching impact this book will have on the industry as a whole.”

Reading Output instantly ignited my desire to be back at the 2010 Olympic Games, on top of Cypress Mountain, knowing we were prepared to perform, all orchestrated by our maestro Ben. The lessons learned in this book have already given me ideas to elevate my work as a coach and as a parent.”

Output is required reading for all those interested in this fascinating and compelling topic.”
