MANAGE YOUR ENERGY NOT YOUR TIME

STOP…Time management may not be the answer. The key is to manage your energy not time to achieve your goals, to be more productive, to have greater satisfaction at work, and get your work life balance sorted.
When you get in touch with your natural rhythms, your tasks and routine will energise you. No matter what your job is, whether you are a consultant, professional Woman or working in a government department, a Business Founder or an employee, a stay at home mum or dad or even how rich and successful you are you will have natural rhythms where you will be more productive during the day
Why are some people more productive? There’s no simple answer as there’s a lot that goes into a productive day. It doesn’t just happen.
In fact, it’s far easier to waste time than it is to treasure it. It can be difficult to keep up with your ever-expanding to-do list, and many of us overestimate the time it takes to do a task. There is only so much your body, and mind, can take before you switch off
MONITOR YOUR ENERGY LEVELS.
