I've listened to this and read this several times. The rituals have made a huge difference to my energy levels. I now can much more often make it home in the late evening without being exhausted.
Casual reader with eclectic tastes (or I'm just all over the place and don't know what I want!) Re-visiting the self-improvement genre atm..
So many helpful life tips. told in a succinct and no-nonsense manner. Thank you :-)
"Everyone Should Read This!"
I have listened to it several times and recommended it to many people I work with as well as my husband. It's message that we all have limited energy is a critical one.
I changed some of the things I do in my life.
"Instinctively Knew Some Of This But Great Read"
This was a short piece which was tightly focused on energy and how to manage energy. It began from the standpoint that time is a finite resource whilst energy can be renewed. Then it went into the ways to renew energy. Great listen. I will undoubtedly listen to it again - something I do with very few titles.
I liked the tight focus. It focused on one area and covered it well. I'm definitely looking at more from the Harvard Business Review.
He was easy to understand, didn't speak too fast or too slow and seemed to impart an enthusiasm for the topic which was enjoyable.
"Good but limited"
The author definitely knows their subject
Not a lot of practical guidelines, due to the briefness. The Power of Full Engagement gets in a lot more depth.
Good one! Thanks to Audible for having this in store. I would recommend this book to my family and friends.
"Food for thought..."
I like it. it's short but I got some good info out of it confirmations and exercises. could have been a bit longer but worth the price.
"Too wordy and not very broken down."
I kind of tuned out after half of it.
More points and longer pauses between those.
Voice was easy to listen to.
Spend more time doing enjoyable things and be more purposeful in my work.
"life changing ideas"
it was a wonderful experience ..will use the strategies mentioned in this to increase my performance ..will manage my energy and not time ..
Highly effective performance.
I already do that half an hour walk daily, breathing excersise, but I didn't really thought of using voice mail to recall all the messages. Much more effective than reading SMS or emails. I shall try that one too.
Good advice but nothing really new or surprising. if you have worked with Senn Delaney or read similar literature, you've heard this before.
"A good read"
This was a good read, especially for the price. I would definitely recommend it to friends or coworkers. There are about 4 key things I took from this article that I noted of and will take with me through my career and life.
