Interestingly, a couple years ago his supervisor sent him a Harvard Business Review with a similar title. Then I recently read this time.com article on Energy Sappers and realized, for me, monkeys were my biggest energy sapper.
Here is the 500ft view from the time.com article on how to avoid energy sappers...
- Exercise regularly,
- Drink water,
- Get the iron you need,
- Set realistic targets and expectations,
- Get the monkeys off your back,
- Eat breakfast,
- Minimize junk food,
- Say no,
- Stay organized,
- Take you vacation time,
- Avoid alcohol and screen time before bed, and
- Keep a consistent sleep schedule.
What is your biggest energy sapper? What activity / ritual / habit gives you the most energy?
