Energy Management, Mental Millionaire, & Time Billionaire
We have finite time but not energy. Energy fluctuates. There are times when we feel like we can move the mountains and there are times when it feels likes we can't even get off the couch.
Better than time management is energy management. Create an energy audit. Find out what drains your energy and what gives you energy. Find out when you are at your peak and when you are at your low.
Now schedule everything around that time. Do things that are important and that require more attention and energy at your peak times and schedule the mundane tasks when your energy is low.
Learning to manage your energy will bring significant changes in your life.
