We often hear that time is our most valuable asset.
I get where that's coming from, but I think time is nothing without (at least) one other component.
If a genie could gift you extra time, it would be worthless unless he also gave you the energy to do something with that time.
Time gives you the opportunity. Energy is what helps you take it.
Or how many times have you had the time to do something, and then told yourself “but I just don’t have the energy right now”?
In a world where time is fixed, the true power lies in managing and maximizing our energy.
Matt Mochary – CEO Coach to companies such as Coinbase, Opendoor, Bolt, and Clearbit – argues that you should spend 75-80% of your time doing things that energize you. That's when you'll perform best – not when you've figured out the perfect time management system.
I like to imagine my energy like a bank account. This precious account fuels my life. And just like a regular bank account, if more energy is going out than coming in, I'm headed for trouble.
That's where an energy audit comes in.
An energy audit is, simply put, an assessment of how you spend your energy throughout the week. It helps you identify where you're wasting your most precious currency and where you could save or invest it more wisely.
Think of it as a budget plan, but for your energy.
