What is it about?
Manage energy not time. Time is strictly limited to 24 hours per day for everyone. Energy however can be managed so that you have a huge reserve of it. If you have this reserve you are far more likely to be both happy and effective in all the endeavours of you life. If you have no personal energy, you will not succeed no matter how much time you have.
How to build a reserve of energy?
You have 4 sources of energy available to you: Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Each of these can be attended to specifically to build your own personal reservoir so that you have plenty to draw on when the going gets tough.
People are not linear:
What most people and work situations fail to recognise is that people are not linear. Machines are linear. You can ask them to perform a task at the same rate all day long with no break, possibly even for months at a time with no break. People however, definitely need recovery and renewal. The authors of this book worked with athletes and discovered that only those athlete who took recovery seriously and mastered it excelled. Those others who trained hard but did not understand or master recovery were the also rans, no matter how talented and dedicated they were.Read more ›
Obviously, the challenge for business leaders in all organizations (whatever their size and nature my be) is to increase the percentage of those workers who are actively and productively engaged. What do Loehr and Schwartz suggest? All of their insights and recommendations are based on a vast amount of real-world experience with all manner of organizations.

1. Full engagement requires drawing on separate but related sources of energy: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.Read more ›
The unique value of this book goes beyond its organization of personal energy into physical, emotional, mental and physical energy. We have read most of these concepts before in the sales motivation literature. The book's practical value is in its advice about how to incorporate regular energy renewal routines into your life. Steven Covey (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) calls this "sharpening the saw." These authors expand on the concept with a full range of suggestions and examples.
The authors' studies of professional athletes have taught them two principles. One is that high performers work hard to stretch their limits and increase their capacity over the long term. This is not news. The second--and more interesting--lesson is that top athletes build replenishment into both their training and performance routines. In one example they describe a tennis player who uses breathing exercises to lower his heart rate between each set. They authors argue that this kind of renewal in the middle of the game is essential to high performance. And that it generalizes from athletes to the rest of us.
I'm sufficiently convinced of the value of renewal rituals that I have used the book's advice to design two of my own.Read more ›
