Another key to full engagement is to take regular breaks. The book recommends taking a break every 90-120 minutes.

There are three things that affect your physical energy: exercise, food, and sleep.

You can maintain emotional energy by doing what you love and being active.

You must do what you need to do, but never neglect to make time for what you love doing too. And remember that relationship matters, so make time for your loved ones!

Specific things you can do to boost mental energy include learning something new, solving a puzzle or a Rubik’s cube, and meditation.

Spiritual energy is the source of motivation.

Personal values and purpose beyond self-interest are the driving force for spiritual energy. Passion, commitment, integrity, and honesty are crucial to building your spiritual muscles.

Three Steps towards Full Engagement

The book suggests a training system that contains three steps for full engagement:

  1. defining your purpose,
  2. accepting your own limitations, and
  3. building positive rituals.
