Many of us let others drain our precious energy.
Why? Because we haven’t established healthy boundaries.
Log your time for a few days and you’ll quickly discover how many seemingly minor events consume a ton of time and energy without a great deal of benefit.
I call these events energy leaks.
When left unattended, these energy leaks impact our ability to get things done.
You have a choice:
- You can distance yourself from toxic relationships that drain your energy.
- You can say “no” to things that no longer serve you.
- You can start doing something instead of procrastinating and worrying about everything.
- You can ask for help!
Thinking you don’t have a choice is yet another energy leak!
Time and energy are valuable assets we all have.
The truth is we all have someone who is vying for our time and attention. Until you learn to reclaim your calendar, you will always be at the mercy of others.
So many leaders think they don’t own their calendar, and therefore find it difficult to dedicate time for the things that matter. That thought in itself is limiting.
Getting and staying focused sometimes requires a little creativity. This week, I’m sharing my top tips to help you stop these energy leaks, regain time, and increase your energy in the process.
