Nearly every strength and conditioning coach in the country relies on percentages to enforce desired intensities to athletes for certain lifts. Basically, the client would perform their lift at a percentage of their 1 repetition max. If they had a max bench press of 100lbs, and you wanted to do 3 sets of 12 reps at 60%, they would do 3x12 at 60lbs. This is absolutely necessary in most strength and conditioning environments for multiple reasons, including consistent program design as well as enforcement of intensity (speaking from experience, some people WILL slack if given the chance). So the question becomes, are percentages right for you?
Most business owners know how they want to run their business. To a large extent this is based on the business owner‘s personal values, ethics and interests. Sometimes the day to day problems pile up at such a rate the owner loses sight of what they wanted to achieve as they get buried under layers of demands on their time. Most people would not consider carrying out a health check on themselves. Instead they consult an external expert who will take an objective look at them and provide impartial advice. In business a similar route should be followed as anyone involved in the day to day running of a business may not notice a significant problem due to familiarity. The old adage about the value of a fresh pair of eyes is true in business as it is elsewhere.
