[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]
