Time and energy are two of our most valuable resources. But it is not the time we have, it is what we do with our time that counts. Even if our days were 36 hrs long many would still be feeling busy and stressed. When we respect time and learn how to use our time effectively we create energy – the precious by-product that has a huge impact on our life satisfaction.
Neen James, a leadership expert and one of my business partners in the international education company Thought Leaders Global helps others to be more influential, impactful and effective. Her keynote address and latest book Folding Time teaches how to achieve twice as much in half the time. Neen says it’s not about managing time, it’s about folding time and the way you do that is being accountable for your time and the people around you. It’s about engaging differently to give people the gift of your undivided attention and leveraging your energy so that you bring this powerful force into every opportunity.
And I think she is spot on! A good energy level is infectious and makes us more influential – it’s a very attractive commodity. Being around someone with a good energy level is motivating and inspiring. It lifts you up and creates momentum in the interaction and situation. Check in with yourself – how is your energy level? Are you lifting others up with your energy?
