Energy Management Principles that Drive Performance - Deepstash

Energy Management Principles that Drive Performance

  • Principle 1: Full engagement requires drawing on four separate but related sources of energy: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
  • Principle 2: Because energy capacity diminishes both with overuse and underuse, we must balance energy expenditure with intermittent energy renewal.
  • Principle 3: To build capacity, we must push beyond our normal limits, training in the same systematic way that elite athletes do.
  • Principle 4: Positive energy rituals—highly specific routines for managing energy— are the key to full engagement and sustained high performance.

The Power of Full Engagement

Forever starved for time, we try to fit everything into each day. But managing time by itself is not the answer. The energy you bring to the table matters too.

This is the power of full engagement. Every one of our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors has an energy consequence. The ultimate measure of our lives is not how much time we spend on the planet, but rather how much energy we invest in the time that we have.

"The number of hours in a day is fixed, but the quantity and quality of energy available to us is not. It is our most precious resource. The more we take responsibility for the energy we bring to the world, the more empowered and productive we become. The more we blame others or external circumstances, the more negative and compromised our energy is likely to be."

The Pressure Of Time

Most leaders have familiar approaches to managing time: setting goals, planning, delegating, tracking commitments, and creating to-do lists. While these approaches do help in self-organization, they are not adequate in helping achieve high levels of sustainable, long-term performance.

The challenge is to have a fast-paced occupation while avoiding burnout, slippage, and sub-optimal performance.

Every individual has exactly the same time but the behavior of spending their time is different. Whether you want to read a book or browse a Youtube feed, it depends on you what to do. Whether you want to be lost on Facebook feeds or Quora’s page, it depends on you. Your time is all yours.

Research shows that humans naturally move from full focus and energy to physiological fatigue every 90 minutes.

Many different methods have been developed around the idea of work and rest, including the 90-minute Technique, the Pomodoro Technique and the 52-17 Technique.

The important point isn’t the exact length of the sprint or the break, it’s to figure out what “pulse and pause” cycle works best for you
