1. Theoretical learning & understanding
2. Practical training
And… 1…6 again
Each one of these stages need optimal mental, emotional and physical conditions to:
1. Input data, information, and knowledge and store them in memory as an experience
2. Blend the above with previous experience retrieved from memory in the focused field (we don’t need to invent the wheel and start from zero)
3. Integrating the process of decision making based on common sense, logic and clear reality perception of what is going on.
The header of this article hints about maintaining and sustaining inner conditions of calmed body and clear mind in order to perform in an optimized way.

2. Sleeping at least 7 hours of quality sleep
3. Recharging vitality

5. Reducing mental, emotional and physical stress daily
6. Being creative
7. Having echo friendly physical conditions of fresh air, high quality water and reasonable weather
8. Getting support, attention, respect, appreciation and being valued by family, friends, colleagues and leaders as motivation factors to increase passion and drive at work.
