[MUSIC] There's lots of personal and professional development along the way of [UNKNOWN] [UNKNOWN] Those are skills and talents. What we're really focused on here for this discussion is your capacity. Literally the fuel in your tank. The energy required to bring your skill and talent to life. Energy is the capacity to do work. I'm no throwing around energy as some kind of zen term and I would not be really nice to get more done. it is the capacity to do work. If I can help you increase your energy, what am I helping you do? Get more done but in less time at a higher level of engagement for the better quality of life. There's four different sources of energy in the human system It's not like an automobile that for the most part relies on one source of fuel. We require four. So what are the four? Well it starts with physical. That's the quantity of our energy. It's fundamental, it's how we think about energy. And all these four sources, by the way, each of them are critical. None of them are sufficient by themselves. They all have a way of influencing one another. So choices you make in one, i.e. less sleep, will play out in how irritable you are or how much focus you have. Emotional is another kind of energy. It's the quality of your energy. So how you feel profoundly influences how you perform. Third source of energy is your mental energy. That's the focus of your energy, the ability to focus on one thing, uninterrupted, for a sustained period of time. I'll say it again for those that weren't listening. Focus on one thing, uninterrupted, for a sustained period of time. How are you doing on that one? That's the one that's most under siege. Over 50,000 energy audits worldwide the mental energy is the one we're most people are feeling it. Endless distraction. Fourth source of energy is the energy of human spirit. And what we're talking about around spiritual energy is deeply held values and a strong sense of purpose. The feeling that what you do matters to you, because if what you do matters to you do you bring more energy to it? You bet you do. That's the energy of perseverance and commitment, and it's the energy Energy that fuels the other three sources of energy. In the work that we're doing with companies, we're finding that the biggest value exchange now, today, for employers and employees is not around time for money. That system is broken. It's yesterday. The new system is meeting people around these four core energy needs. Physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual so that they are freed, fueled, and inspired to bring the best of themselves to work every day. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
