Energy seems to be a big word these days everywhere from global offices to local kitchens. I’ve recently read the article Learning to Manage Your Energy at Entrepreneur.com that tackles the problem of time, or lack thereof, from the personal energy perspective. The article offers a test to identify your energy profile: you can be a shark, a dolphin, a whale, or a jellyfish. It also asks some important questions:
- Are you surviving or thriving?
- How to get from the surviving to thriving mode?
It appears that one way to increase you energy level is to eliminate the activities in your daily routine that drain you without giving you much in return. If you don’t like the outcomes, you have to change what you are doing. Legal Andrew has some tips for you in Increase Productivity by Doing Something Different. Are you a fan of to-do lists?
