Start managing your energy instead of your time and lead a happier, more productive life.
More than 75 percent of employees around the world feel disengaged at work every day. We're in a new kind of energy crisis -- and this one is personal.
In a previous blog post I commented on the NY Times Best Selling book by Tony Schwartz, "The Way We're Working Isn't Working- The Four Forgotten Needs that Energize Great Performance." In this book there is a lot of links back to business, nutrition, golden rule of Triggers, focused tasks and Maslow's Hierachy of Needs. Very worthwhile!
