It seems that everyone wants more energy. So let’s look at what ‘more energy’ means in your life and how you can get more of it.

Step One:

Schedule 15 minutes to explore what is draining your energy and to decide how you will start to get more energy.

Can you get more energy from cooking better food, taking lunches to work or through exercise. Maybe you could get one more hour of sleep a night if you hired someone to help you clean your house or do laundry. What other types of jobs can people help you do to lighten your load – physically/emotionally?

Step Two:

Write the answers and ideas you come up with on a clean sheet of paper and answer the following questions:
  • Who can I call to help me?
  • When will I call them?
  • What am I going to ask them for?
  • How much money will I allocate to this project?
  • What supplies might I need?
  • When will I buy the supplies?
  • Who will be my accountability partner?

Step Three:

Schedule the action items from step two into your calendar and act on them.

If you think this is easier to read than to do, you are absolutely correct.

If it makes you feel overwhelmed, then I’ll ask you to rethink your choice because if you’re already thinking negatively about your choice you probably don’t want to do it.
