In 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.  In the twenty-first century, people as never before live by means of performance and self leadership.
