Are you ‘ready to go’ in the morning?
Are you able to maintain high levels of energy during the day?
Do you rely a lot on caffeine or energy drinks to keep you going?
Do you have energy left in reserve at the end of the day?
When we start to pursue our dreams and to live our life to the max the best thing to have is an abundance of personal energy, to have all our tanks full and to go forward in high gear and at full speed! What good is it to have great personal goals if there is simply not enough energy to follow through with them? If we have that extra energy everything will become easier to do.
We are often obsessed with time, and there never seems to be enough of it.
We try to squeeze more into every minute of every day.
We eat fast food on the run and chat on our cell phone while driving, eating, or exercising. We get drive through coffee and watch TV “on demand”. At the end of the day, we fall into bed exhausted, but sleep doesn’t come easily because we’re constantly thinking about the next day.
We want more hours in the day so that we can do more. But there are only 24 hours in each day, 168 hours in the week.
There are two problems with time. The first one is that after a certain number of hours fatigue inevitably sets in. There is only so much we can do.
The second problem with time is that it’s finite, and most of us don’t have any of it left to invest. Our dance cards are full and yet we’re never finished.
There is a strong case that energy management can save you more time than time management.
The way we’re working isn’t working.
We need to manage our energy vs managing our time.
Though time is finite, energy can be expanded, renewed and used more efficiently.
We need to be intentional about energy management.
