86,400 seconds in a day.

10, 080 minutes in a week.

~730 hours in an average month.

We all have same amount of time.

Time, while relative in its experience, is constant in its duration. There is no adding time. Or slowing it down when we need more. Time is a constant. It is unmanageable

Energy, on the other hand, is both manageable in quantity and quality. If we are intentional and intelligent, we can increase the both amount and quality of our energy. According to experts in the field, Tony Schwartz and Catherine McCarthy (writing in the October 2007 edition of the Harvard Business Review):

. . . people take for granted what fuels their capacity to work—their energy. Increasing that capacity is the best way to get more done faster and better. Time is a finite resource, but energy is different. It has four wellsprings—the body, emotions, mind, and spirit—and in each, it can be systematically expanded and renewed.

I look forward to explaining just what Schwartz and McCarthy mean by the “four well-springs [of energy]” and just how the quantity and quality of each can be increased in future posts.

For now, ask yourself: “What if I had 25% more — and better quality — energy in my physical body, in my emotions, in the content and pattern of my thoughts and my spiritual life?” (You can have that, and more . . . .)
