Analysis and Comparison of Alternatives

Many studies reveal that the fact that mind and body are closely intertwined;

1. Low Portion Mental Training + High Portion Physical Training

Some study by researchers in Wales has confirmed the fact, that mental exhaustion can impair physical performance of the person. Further people who are mentally exhausted reach physical exhaustion limit sooner than when they are mentally fresh. Too focus on physical training without mental stimulation and forging would be ineffective.

2. Low Portion Physical Training + High Portion Mental Training

While mental exercise is very important, but if not accompanied by adequate physical exercise the results will ineffective as well. If the mental exercise is assumed to a “skill”,  physical exercise would be the “tools”.

The person a good of skills but lack adequate of mastering tools, the results obtained would be less optimum.

3. Balance Portion of Physical Training and Mental Training

The role of a mentor/trainer is essential here. A good mentor/trainer who has considerable  experience and depth of knowledge will give routine and challenging exercises . Mentor/trainer also must be able to create under pressure situation in order to push people to their limit.  Gives more challenge and review the results to monitor the progress of an individual. Some feedbacks would be necessary for self assessment and to prepare the effort in order to make achievements.

    AWESOME, Adi!!!! Nice work!!

    You followed the template very well and appropriately, nice use of citations and your word count (~400) was right on.

    I cannot ask for anything better than this. Now that it is clear you understand how the template works, my recommendation would be to start taking real problems/opportunities, preferably from your working world but if not, from your personal life as well and apply the same logical, step by step process. By picking a topic that represents a REAL problem you are facing, you can pick my brain- in effect, “free” consulting, to help, support or mentor you in finding solutions, using the tools/techniques you are learning about.

    Keep up the good work and please be sure to “pay it forward” by helping your colleagues and team members with THEIR weekly blog postings.

    Again, nice job, Adi!!

    BR,
    Dr. PDG, Jakarta
