Let’s face it, as women who are in business, women who are moms, women who keep a home, run errands, do dishes, buy food, who are nurse, lover, and friend we have a lot on our plates every day.
When are you at your most energetic during your day?
I’m willing to go out on a limb and state that I bet that is the time of day when you do your best work.
It is the time when you fly through tasks completing them faster than the speed of light.
What is it about that time which energizes you?
We each have a two sides to our lives. We have our Professional Life at work and all the things that have to be completed there. And we have our Personal Life and our duties to our families.
I would like to propose to you that if you did that 20% of the most important things in each area of your life when you are the most energetic that you would get 80% of what need to get done, DONE!
We tend to do what is pleasant and easiest instead of what is on that 20% list. We wind up drowning in the 80% of the items on the list which for all intense and purposes do not move us upward or forward in our career or in our daily life. We seem to be waiting for some “MOMENT” to arrive.
Now I am looking for anyone out there that knows when “THE MOMENT” is going to arrive. If you knew this one thing and you could sell it, you would be set for the rest of your life. Of course you would have to write copy for it, package it nicely and get it to the right market at the right time in order to capitalize on “YOUR MOMENT”!
The other day, I spend 2 1/2 hours in my car going some place and then another 7 hours in an event although pleasurable – LOUD, and then another 2 1/2 hours driving back home. I know that my best energy time is in the morning in the sunshine. It doesn’t matter where I am, I have lots of energy and all the neurons are firing in my head. Since it was a sunny day and I was driving during my peak performance time, I chose to listen to an inspirational CD from someone that I like to learn from. The middle 7 hours is somewhat of a blur. The ride home was exhausting. I took out my contacts (because they were sticking to my eyeballs), I rolled down the windows to let the brisk 29 degree wind in the car so I wouldn’t fall asleep and I tuned the radio to an upbeat station.
You get the idea.
Now think back about your own day. How do you use your most energetic time?
