Energy, not time, is the fundamental currency of high performance. -Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz
“The number of hours in a day is fixed, but the quantity and quality of energy available to us is not,” write Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz, authors of The Power of Full Engagement – Managing Energy, Not Time, Is the Key to High Performance and Personal Renewal. The book lays out key principles to enhance performance based on their work with hundreds of senior executives and managers, as well as Jim Loehr’s work as a performance psychologist with athletes.
“The ultimate measure of our lives is not how much time we spend not the planet, but rather how much energy we invest in the time that we have,” they explain.
This week, I encourage you to consider how much energy you are bringing to your daily activities. Are you energized?
Have a happy and productive week!
