#5 Things You Ought To Know About Your Performance’s Fluctuation📈


Written by:

There are things you ought to know about your performance’s fluctuation and its cycle, if you are motivated to achieve your career and business’ goals.

There are many different environmental and internal conditions that affect the rate of your performance. For example, it’s important to know how your performance normally fluctuates among months, among weeks, even among different days.

#1 What is performance fluctuation?

How do you exactly observe the fluctuation of your creative performance? The estimation is based on the energy you are able to invest –physical, intellectual and psychological- for each specific task and the outcome you produce from that investment. Is this outcome the optimal one? Or is there a margin of improvement and how much?

#2 The importance of performance fluctuation

Nonetheless, why is it necessary to know about this fluctuation of performance? It helps you realize that you cannot exhibit the same amount of performance all the time. You are not a machine. There are a lot of things that happen around you and in your personal life and they affect you. There are different conditions occurring at any moment, which may make it difficult for you to totally focus and invest in your goal-making. Thus, instead of working against these conditions, you need to work along with them and find out when and how to deal with your personal performance fluctuation.

#3 The danger of ignoring the performance fluctuation

A lot of people actually do exactly the opposite. They expect to perform equally well every single day. Unfortunately, they struggle by doing that. As a consequence, they add so much more pressure on themselves, that they finally obtain the completely opposite outcome. Of course this is not a productive attitude. Instead, it is demotivating and frustrating. It can also be very energy consuming for you. Sometimes it can even be dangerous for your physical and mental health.

#4 The best way to deal with performance fluctuations

Therefore, what is the best way to manage your own performance fluctuation?

a. The first action to do is start being aware of these fluctuations. You can keep notes of your daily performance. For better results, create your own excel sheet, where you will keep a record of how many hours you have worked and what was the outcome of this work. Have you accomplished the tasks that you had planned to do? Are you totally satisfied by the outcome?

b. Based on these records, you will be able to create a weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly performance report. Once you study these reports, you will recognize and identify your personal patterns of fluctuation performance. Sometimes there are some standard patterns to take under consideration. For example, for women, their menstrual cycle is deeply interrelated with their performance. Another example is the fluctuation based on the months of the year. Excessive cold during winter months, or excessive heat during summer months tend to reduce your performance. One well known reason for fluctuation results has to do with standard holiday seasons, such as Christmas or summer holidays. Furthermore, some people are better performers during the beginning of the week; whereas some others perform better during the end of the week.

c. Once you identify your personal patterns of fluctuation, the best thing you can do is prepare yourself for the highs and lows of your performance cycle and accordingly customize your blueprint of success. By that you can be a top performer during the highs; whereas during the lows you will be mindful not to demand to do the maximum of performance from yourself, simply because you will not be able to do it.

#5 The secret power of performance fluctuation

The secret on how to use the performance fluctuation in benefit of your goals’ success is this: invest on a very good average of performance. Knowing your basic fluctuation patterns, you can estimate that each average of performance will provide an outcome good enough to bring you closer to your goal.

When taking under consideration the average of your performance’s cycle –either weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly- you have the privilege to assess the progress you make. This is the most important estimation you can make; it helps you compute your fluctuation’s performance and correctly guide you to the next steps you need to take in order to achieve your goals. It also protects you from jumping into the wrong conclusions, such as that you procrastinate or that you may not be able to achieve the goals you want to.
