Work Actions

 To identify what to prioritize and what to attempt to delegate or delete from your days, use my Energy Calendar Technique.

  • For one week, at the end of every weekday, go through and color-code your calendar from the day. Green for Energy Creating, Yellow for Neutral, and Red for Energy Draining. At the end of the week, look at your calendar and assess the trends: What are the common energy creating, neutral, and energy draining activities? Energy creating should be prioritized, while energy neutral and energy draining should be delegated or deleted over time.
