Andrew Deutscher explains how to get more done through energy management techniques.
[MUSIC] How many of you would say that the last two to three years of your life that the demand is as high as it's ever been? So here's the fundamental question to the work that we do with the energy project. And it's this, how many of you expect your capacity that is literally the fuel in your tank to rise right along up and meet that demand? So, everyone in the room said yeah, actually the demand is gonna go higher. So I have to grow my capacity around it. Part of the assumptions that get challenged is if you sleep an hour more and you take an hour out of the day to exercise, it's counterintuitive but you'll actually end up getting more done because you're going to have more energy. Some of the practical strategies that we've seen people really come up with is doing the most important thing first. For 90 minutes in the morning and then taking a break and recovering. To eating five, a minimum of five times during a day to keep their metabolism going. To stopping at several points during the day, checking in with what. Emotion, emotional framework that they're in, utilizing our energy quadrants and what zone they're in or how they're feeling, high positive or low positive or are they in high negative. And then just bring awareness to an emotion and then be able to step outside of that and to be able to renew. If you were to just here after this talk for one minute And consciously breath in to the count of three, and then out to the count of six. For one minute, you'll feel radically different. Your physiology will be reduced. You'll feel a lot more refreshed. So, we've seen very simple things from people taking a ten minute walk in the middle of the day. When they're especially pressure to actually get away from that and go renew. Or meetings that have been cut down from hour and a half to forty-five minutes because they're better organized and they manage people's expectations. To approaching your e-mail as a one thing at a time activity, instead of being intermittent and constantly coming in and out of it. The outcomes of effect energy management are crystal clear. It's you're healthier, you're happier, and as a result, you're more focused and you're more committed. [MUSIC]
