You Can’t Be Productive Without This…
If you own the latest iPhone or the Samsung phone, but your battery is dead, these great pieces of technology serve you little. It doesn’t matter that the device has an ultra-performing processor; it’s useless because it has no power.
Likewise, if you have a Lamborghini or a Ferrari or a Porsche but have no fuel in it, your car is useless. It looks pretty but serves no purpose because it has no power.
Having the latest and the greatest means nothing if you don’t have enough power to take advantage of those devices. You would be better off having an older device with a full battery or a fueled Toyota. At least, your device would be usable, and your Toyota would take you places.
Like smartphones and cars and other devices, you need the energy to function optimally. Without energy, it doesn’t matter how talented you are; you won’t go very far. You can be the most sophisticated “device” on the planet, if you don’t have the energy to perform, you’re just occupying space.
Energy is the starting point of your productivity. Nothing else matters if you don’t have energy. No energy, no productivity. It’s that simple.
I’m sure you have moments when your energy level is so low that you feel you can’t even bring your fork to your mouth to eat something. If you’ve ever been in that situation, you know that, without energy, even with the best intentions, nothing gets done. You want to get your work done, but you can’t muster up the gusto you need to get it done. The result: you get nothing done.
Understanding the role energy plays in your productivity is vital. To a great extent, productivity is energy management. Productivity requires that you focus on how you get energy and how you use that energy. You’re productive to the extent that you’re able to apply your energy to activities that produce results.
When you grasp this, you pay attention to your energy level, making sure you have enough energy to a carry through your duties.
