“Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.”
– Ralph Marston, American writer
Imagine you are a high-quality battery in a new electric vehicle. When fully charged, you have ability to transport yourself and your cargo 100 miles. As you plan your trips, you are very careful to determine the exact distances you are traveling – and make absolutely certain you are home or at another recharging station with enough time to be prepared for your next excursion.
Unfortunately, many of us expect ourselves and others to always be at full charge emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually – which is not always the case. We even get upset and frustrated with ourselves and others when we fall short of this unrealistic target.
Consider picking up a copy of The Power of Full Engagement (www.amazon.com/The-Power-Full-Engagement-Performance/dp/0743226755) by Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz and explore many of their energy-saving and energy-restoring strategies to help you get back to work and accomplish the important things you desire.
