In terms of work, education, and sex, “to perform” is to do something up to a standard – to succeed, to excel. In the arts,  “to perform” is to put on a show, a play, a dance, a concert. In everyday life, “to perform” is to be conscious about your actions and be able set your own standards, to lead yourself.  As never before, people in the 21st century live by means of performance and self-leadership.
